ISSUE 1 PREVIEW: The Starlost

The giant Earthship Ark, drifting through deep space over 800 years into the far future. Its passengers, descendants of the last survivors of the dead planet Earth, locked in separate worlds. Heading for destruction, unless three young people can save, The Starlost.

How many of you remember The Starlost, a short-lived Canadian sci-fi series?  Very few we imagine – but not to worry as readers will get a chance to discover this forgotten series in the debut issue of Chromakey.

The Starlost was a Canadian-produced science fiction television series created by writer Harlan Ellison and broadcast in 1973 on CTV in Canada and syndicated to local stations in the United States. The show’s setting is a huge generational colony spacecraft called Earthship Ark, which has gone off course. Many of the descendants of the original crew and colonists are unaware, however, that they are aboard a ship. The series experienced a number of production difficulties, and Ellison broke with the project before the airing of its first episode.

Chromakey issue 1 is scheduled for publication Fall 2018.
