Ascension is a modern fantasy with speculative fantasies. The microcosms are created by human beings as individuals in the macrocosms of the vast universe. Creators Philip Levens and Adrian A. Cruz did an amazing job enough to make the show the talk of the entertainment world its release. The science-fiction-driven show was divided into three parts of two chapters each. Hence, there are a total of six episodes of forty-three minutes each letting us ascend the miniseries of Ascension. Producers Jason Blum, Brett Burlock, Ivan Fecan, Tim Gamble, Philip Levens, and Mark Stern helped the launch of the show as it aired on two different networks called CBC in Canada and Syfy In the United States. Originally planned to release in November 2014, the show faced a lot of hasty postponements. Then CBC started the show on February 9, 2015, every regular Monday night while Syfy premiered a little ahead on December 2014 where there was the portrayal of two episodes compiling a chapter each day. It aired for three nights consecutively and compactly finished the launch starting from December 15, 2014, to December 17, 2014. The show is dripped in a mysterious aura with the occurrence of unfortunate events and the unfolding of their details.

Ascension Season 1 Story
The story revolves around a century-old starship inspired by real-life historical events when 1963 United States President John F. Kenney and his government planned to launch Ascension as a defense mechanism. This Orinion-class spaceship was to secure another planet that would be safe for human existence in case the earth is destroyed in the midst of Cold War Two. The ship was extremely advanced of its times as it could sustain itself and carry a vast amount of people- almost around six hundred. The real story starts when a young woman mysteriously gets murdered leaving everyone in the self-sustaining spaceship drowning in doubts and immense suspense. Everyone starts being skeptical of the entire mission of settling down on another planet just because of speculated paranoia of earth’s destruction. Simultaneously, the spaceship also starts breaking due to technical glitches and the unavailability of the required fuel to keep the spaceship running. The characters play their part very well in a run of only six episodes that gives the viewers a first-hand experience of the long-gone event.
