Dark Matter - Nowhere to Go television review

Dark Matter closes out its Third Season with a bit of a messy episode which opens with Two (Melissa O’Neil choosing not to shoot Ryo (Alex Mallari Jr.) and closes with the death of a member of the Raza’s crew and the arrival of an armada of black ships through a breach in space-time. While overburdened a bit with too much plot, the episode certainly provides its share of memorable moments including Two’s betrayal, the resurrection of the alien storyline, Three‘s (Anthony Lemke) capture, and the destruction of both the Blink Drive and the Marauder.

Dark Matter - My Final Gift To You television review

The future prophecies continue to come true as Three (Anthony Lemke), Five (Jodelle Ferland), and Six (Roger Cross) use Transfer Transit to visit Zairon to hear out Ryo (Alex Mallari Jr.) and recover the Raza’s missing crewmate. Hoping to butter-up his guests, and throw them off-guard, Ryo uses his knowledge of their past to offer a gift to each of them. A coup d’état ends the proceedings as the populace rises up against Ryo and Misaki (Ellen Wong) attempts to kill her emperor.

Dark Matter - The Dwarf Star Conspiracy television review

A little knowledge can be dangerous. Information from their recent rendevouz sends the crew of the Raza to a secret Dwarf Star base where they discover that Two (Melissa O’Neil) is far from the only one of her kind. The facility houses thousands of sentient biological machines, all with pre-made backstories ready to be awoken and unleashed upon the galaxy. However, that’s not the most disturbing part of what they find on the station. Confirming Three‘s (Anthony Lemke) recent nightmares, the Raza find a gateway where alien parasites await to come through and take control of their willing synthetic hosts. The arrival of a Mikkei ship doesn’t help situations, especially when Five (Jodelle Ferland) discovers one of their soldiers is another synthetic agent.

Dark Matter - Built, Not Born TV review

Teased at the end of the previous episode, “Built, Not Born” offers the return of Android‘s (Zoie Palmer) robotic friends who call on the Raza‘s help to cover-up a murder, get three of them off a space station, and deliver them to their creator. Although the motives of their robotic friends will remain hidden from the crew, Two (Melissa O’Neil) will get a shock when meeting Dr. Shaw (Palmer) who not only created the Android but also was one of the scientists responsible for creating her as well.

Dark Matter - Isn't That a Paradox? television review

While not as amusing as the time-loop episode from earlier this season, “Isn’t That a Paradox?” is a goofy episode. The (often malfunctioning) Blink Drive has proved to be an intriguing plot element used to allow the show to do some more unusual stories. This time the malfunctioning device sends the crew of the Raza back in time to 2017 where they attempt to fit into suburban life while seeking out a second Blink Drive whose connection to theirs caused their unexpected journey in time. It’s an interesting idea that feels a little rushed (think of how much fun it would have been for them to be stranded in the past for multiple episodes).
