PROJECTS

Thirty one hours ago, the IWS Crichton, an ice miner and tug ship, discovered the remains of a derelict vessel in the unexplored star system XTX-38523.

 

Eleven hours ago, all contact with the Crichton was lost...

When the galaxy's most powerful corporation discovers that the derelict ship belongs to them, and that the time to recover it is quickly running out, they send the only people they can, a group of washed up engineers and scientists who would do anything to reconstruct the lives they've destroyed. Their objective: find out what happened to the crew of the Crichton, and bring the derelict back...at any cost.

But, as they soon learn, there are some mysteries that should remain buried. And there are some things lost that should never be found. 

DERELICT is a narrative podcast experience from award winning science fiction author J. Barton Mitchell, that follows a host of unlikely characters trying to unlock the frightening mysteries of an abandoned spaceship in the far reaches of space. 

The first season of DERELICT will be ten episodes, and will premiere at the end of 2019.
