Ascension Auctions Launch July 16th
VIP Fan Auctions, in partnership with Lionsgate Studios, is proud to announce the official Ascension TV Miniseries Auctions will launch on July 16th. The Syfy series is an original science fiction mystery drama, that takes place on a supposed “generation” ship, and consisted of 6 episodes aired over 3 nights.
Ascension was inspired by the real-life Project Orion that existed under the administration of President John F. Kennedy. The show sets up an alternate version of reality beginning in 1963, when President Kennedy and the U.S. government, fearing the Cold War will become hot and lead to the destruction of Earth, decides to launch a covert space mission. They sent 600 volunteers, including men, women and children, into space on a century-long voyage aboard the USS Ascension, a massive, self-sustaining generation ship. Their mission is to colonize a planet orbiting Proxima Centauri assuring the survival of the human race. At 51 years into their 100 year journey and as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman – the first homicide since their departure causes the ship’s crew to question the true nature of their mission.
The cast gives us many Syfy favorites including, Tricia Helfer (Tricia Denninger), Brian Van Holt (William Denninger), Gil Bellows (Harris Enzmann), Andera Roth (Dr. Juliet Bryce), Brandon P Bell (Aaron Gault), P J Boudousque (James Toback), Jacquelin Byers (Nora Bryce) Brad Carter (Stokes), Tiffany Lonsdale (Emily Vanderhaus) Ellie O’Brein (Christa Valis) Ryan Robbins (Duke Vandrhaus), Al Sapienza (Councilman Rose) Lauren Lee Smith (Samantha Kruegar) and Mark Camacho (Martin Carillo),
