There is no Next Episode of Dark Matter planned.
A spaceship crew awaken from stasis with no memory of their mission or their identities, but once they reach their destination, a mining colony, they begin to look for answers while working together to survive in the series premiere of this adaptation of the graphic novel series of the same name.
The crew come to terms with revelations about their respective pasts; at the same time, they face the dilemma of helping the miners against insurmountable odds or abandoning them to certain death.
Sabotage is suspected and the onboard paranoia surges when the ship mysteriously veers off course. To bring the systems back online, a perilous spacewalk is required; at the same time, Five makes a shocking discovery.
The past comes back to haunt members of the crew during a stopover at a space station, during which Four makes a stunning discovery, while Two and Five learn that some games of chance come with surprising risks. Elsewhere, Six receives some unwanted attention at a local clinic; and One and Three's attempts to sell the weapons in their cargo hold lands them at a dangerous disadvantage.
The crew are hired by their handler to salvage a seemingly deserted space freighter, a reclaim op that appears to be straightforward until a deadly cargo is uncovered and they are forced to fight for their lives.
Chemical hypnosis and the ship's neural link are used to explore the memories secreted away in Five's subconscious, during which she uncovers the dark truth about Four and Six's violent pasts. She also learns about the circumstances that landed her on the ship and gains some insight into the idyllic childhood of a mysterious little boy.
The crew finally gain access to the secret room in the ship's underbelly and among the items they find inside are a sunny android and a desperately ill woman who reveals a connection to Three.
The crew stop at a space station to refuel and rest, but Six has a different agenda, which has to do with revenge. Meanwhile, One is taken aback by an unwelcome revelation.
Four abandons the ship to embark on a reckless mission to reclaim his past and the crew are left wondering whether they should rescue him or let fate run its deadly course.
The crew's need of money compels them to take on a dangerous assignment, which involves heisting a mysterious device from a rival corporation. Complications arise when they encounter another team of mercenaries who have been hired to do the same job.
The crew's youngest member and an unexpected surprise turn out to be their best chance in a race against time to retake the ship from a group of ruthless mercenaries hell-bent on delivering them to the Galactic Authority.
The crew's handler sends them on a seemingly simple retrieval op that involves a scientist being held against his will on a remote world. This snatch and grab, however, quickly devolves into a horrifying ordeal, which reunites one member of the crew with a powerful individual from her past.
Personalities clash, long-held secrets are revealed and the crew members are rocked by a shocking betrayal in the Season 1 finale.
