Just watched, got to episode 6 and decided to instead of wasting 42 minutes, just watch recaps to the last episode 10 and maybe got 22 minutes and 30 seconds into it and just shut it off. A good few hours wasted, but the beginning was cool when I had no idea what was going on! :D

If you want to compare to the original story, imagine Lysa Arryn from GOT (well, really this character predated Lysa Arryn as Lysa is more based on her than vice versa, but you get the picture, proto-Lysa) was from a non-Earth human inhabited sci-fi planet which had backwards opinions about telepaths, and she was an exceptionally strong telepath and for that the planet where she was from tried to surgically handicap her abilities (which damaged her, but didn't handicap her). After escaping her home planet she got her hands on a custom-built spaceship piloting transportation loads from place to place (insistent on not having any other crew members around). Now imagine after a few years she got lonely as fuck and wanted to have someone to be... romantic with, but she couldn't trust another person--but she could trust herself she thought. So she clones herself and makes the clone male and decides to raise the clone as her "son" (with the intentions of transitioning him to her lover after he matures at some point). At some point in the process however she gets injured enough where she knows she's going to die, and scared of death, she uploads herself into her spaceship--completely with telepathic abilities. Her "son" clone is born after her death and now grows up being looked after by his ship-mother never interacting with another human being and thus if he ever did encounter another human being, he'd be liable to die since he doesn't have the immunities to diseases that most people have built up from other human contact over the years. Having never interacted with other humans, he longs for human contact. Ship-mom, having always been hurt by others is fearful of other people and scared that if her son does contact other people he'll leave her (and she sees him as belonging to her). The two constantly butt heads as his desire to make contact with other people pushes him to accept an assignment which will bring a crew on board--against her wishes. Imagine if Bran from GOT and his cousin Robin were one character, and you get that character (the captain) in a nutshell. Cue a scientist who's obsessed with proving a myth called the Volcryn, a powerful telekinetic alien creature who increases the power of telepaths near it that is able to live in the vacuum of space, exists. He organizes a collection of people in different respective fields, and charters a voyage to chase after what they think is the Volcryn on the ship. As the captain interacts with Melantha Jhirl, he slowly becomes infatuated with her and she likewise with him. This interaction causes ship-mom to go crazy. Add in that the telepath decides he wants to figure out what's at the heart of the ship (when he senses another presence when looking for the Volcryn that he can't explain) and by doing so goes crazy himself, prompting everyone else to start seeing visions and then slowly getting killed off as the ship-mom uses the telepath to kill off the crew one by one until she can have her "son" all to herself. There's more beyond that, but I think that all captures the crux of the story, and I think from there you can tell what SYFY did. And no, the original story is really that crazy. All the weird changes you're complaining about seem to me to be SYFY trying to find a way around all the crazy stuff without going full on crazy. A kind of sanitized and conventional crazy.

Just listening to the first 2 minutes makes me go: And this is what happens when you take a novella which was more like Agatha Christie's "And then there were None" but in Space, and then throw "oh yeah, we're doing this because humanity is relying on these fuckers" in order to add a sense of stakes to the story, which wasn't originally present in the story as written. But then the writers clearly scrapped GRRM's Sci-Fi universe for this series, because in that universe humanity has an empire's worth of planets it's spread out to and this ship is just a small number of them chasing after a mythical alien creature that may or may not exist--they're going to go and find out. Change that instead to a higher stakes backstory, and you ruin the sense of exploration that the story is supposed to have as outer-exploration transitions thematically into inner exploration as the psychic attacks occur.

IMO all Nightflyers was is a series expansion on HAL theme from 2001 A Space Odyssey. I have never been a fan of "computer goes crazy in space" movies no matter how "complex" the writer attempts to make them. Thus I was never much interested in this series in the first place. This analysis only proves my instincts were right. Thanks.

Yep most of the things are Convoluted in Nightflyers & messy at most of the times but it's quite enjoyable for a pure Sci-fi fan... TBH this Video is Stereotypical in many situations describing the Plot & Character Motivations, just give it a Try if u want a Space Show with horror into mix, the ending is like they left u with many questions without even giving us that entire crew is alive or not but that doesn't mean it's bad as many show's does that but here it is even more bigger 'cause the situations here are drastically different & bigger than normal show's.....

I know that feeling. I had the perfect woman. Wendy. . She was crazy hot (she held the round signs between rounds in mma shows). She was also weirdly moral. Not a slut... Cept for the man she dates. She was profoundly caring, into athletic stuff like me. Had abs but liked to drink beer & watch Sports on a Saturday night. It was perfect. Then she asked me to held her rob an armored car so we’d have enough money to build a lab where we could produce drugs & become rich. I don’t think she was used to being told no cause she tried to hit me with a sledge hammer. Haven’t heard from her since except she mailed me a package with a note saying that the package contents should be taken seriously. It had nunchukus in it. I have no idea what that means. Anyways it was maybe the best 3 months of my life. Weirdest part is the way she misjudged me. Like I couldn’t be more content with life, more stable & less criminal. Why on earth did she take it as a given that I’d be willing to dig ditches so she could shoot guards in the head & bury them in? I doubt she’d gave actually gone thru with it since she’s 96 lbs and I just don’t see her thinking she could convince armed men to drop their guns & let her tie them up. I mean she was dumb. But that’s pretty fuckinh dumb. Alas yes this story has no point. It’s not interesting. It’s not funny. It has no conclusion. But I clicked on this cause I feel the same way about the show & when I heard the part about people surprising u it really flashed me back to that weird weird time

Given the distinct differences between novella and show, one wonders why GRRM licensed it. It's not like he needs the money. My biggest complaint about the show comes from the show writers apparently not reading the source material. Teke is for telekinetic; tepe is for telepathy. It's the vernacular used in all of GRRM's thousand world stories. Why make this "change"?

I hate sci-fi stories that feature brilliant scientists but then make them act like complete idiots. Either commit to writing smart characters, or come up with a different scenario, because nothing kills tension and believability faster than this shit. Alien's space truckers seem like a band Stephen Hawkings compared to these idiots. Star Trek and Solaris should be mandatory viewing for anyone writing a space sci-fi script.
