Do not try to resist.

SYFY WIRE has an exclusive first look at the new key art for George R.R. Martin's upcoming Nightflyers series, with a tag line that promises: "You Can't Escape What's Inside." So, that sounds... less than assuring. But no less intriguing!

Based on Martin's 1980 novella of the same name, Nightflyers is an Alien-meets-Event Horizon-meets-Sunshine sci-fi/horror thriller. In 2093, in hopes of making contact with mysterious alien life at the edge of our solar system, a group of scientists (along with a telepath) embark on an expedition aboard The Nightflyer. As they race toward first contact, terrifying and violent events begin to occur, causing the once tight-knit crew to mistrust each other. It's not long before their main mission becomes survival.
