During a test flight NASA astronaut John Crichton accidentaly creates a wormhole and is transfported to another Universe. He is captured by three escaped prisoners (Pa'u Zothoh Zhaan, Ka D'Argo, and Dominar Rygel XVI) who are stealing their prision transport, a living ship called Moya.

This small band must now go on the run.
