The unquestioning crew of starship Challenger follow two on-board 'angels' in search of new home planets. Stars Sean Arnold. From January 1981.

The starship Challenger has been on a 115-year-long mission exploring other galaxies for suitable Earth-like planets to colonise.

The present crew of four were born on the Challenger and have never left it. From birth they've been looked after by two 'Angels' - voices surrounding and guiding their every move. The crew follows their advice without question. A dangerous situation, perhaps, if the Angels aren't all their names imply...

James Follett's 10-part adventure serial in time and space.
