The first trailer for the upcoming Netflix series “Nightflyers” was released Wednesday.

The plot of the series, according to ComingSoon.net, is as follows:

Nightflyers follows eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embark on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain — in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other — and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.

The trailer is absolutely haunting, and shows a young woman covered in what appears to be human guts.

Is Netflix about to have another outstanding hit on its hands? They just keep getting better and better, and I’m down for anything that involves a little sci-fi action.

Sci-fi films and series are always better when they embrace the darkness. Nobody wants to see about a bunch of jolly space crusaders. We want to see aliens destroying the universe and some humans coming in to lay down the law.

It looks like “Nightflyers” will be all about that world. There is no set release date, but be on the lookout because this one should be great.
