I used to watch a TV show in the 80s. In the show, the main characters used to explore a giant space ship having lots of chambers and in each chamber, there were a new group of people and situations and aliens. I can't remember what our heroes were looking for, but they used to end up in a new chamber (containing new situation and problem) each week.

Can you please identify that TV show?


Could this be Starlost? The main premise of the show was that a group of generation travelers (from a 'primitive zone') are forced to explore a vast spaceship in order to work out how to restart their engines and prevent life-support from going off after an accident destroys the crew areas.

Each week they would enter new areas of the ship, either biospheres with different cultures or engineering areas and would face challenges as they made their way to the bridge.

  • I watched this a few months back, and it was actually pretty good, some good writing. Most of the famous Sci-fi writers associated with the show disowned it later, but compared to what is normally on TV it was pretty solid. – Mark Rogers Mar 16 '15 at 3:53
