Watch the first trailer for Syfy's new outer space series, Dark Matter

Syfy has taken the wraps off its shiny new sci-fi series, Dark Matter, spawned from the fertile imaginations of former Stargate writer-producers Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie and based on their own Dark Horse graphic novel of the same name.

Check out this mind-warping first trailer, depicting the bewildered crew of a junker spacecraft adrift in deep space, awakening from suspended animation with no clue how they got there.  The 13-episode program is set to debut on Syfy (DISCLOSURE: Parent company of Blastr) this June and hopes to captivate faithful fans of the Stargate TV franchise by adding some familiar faces -- like Amanda Tapping (Stargate SG-1) and Torri Higginson (Stargate: Atlantis) -- to the cast.

Here's the official synopsis:

In Dark Matter, the crew of a derelict spaceship is awakened from stasis with no memories of who they are or how they got on board. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets.  The cast includes Zoie Palmer (Lost Girl), Roger Cross (The Strain), Marc Bendavid (Bitten), Anthony Lemke (White House Down), Melissa O'Neil (Les Miserables), Joelle Ferland (Twilight) and Alex Mallari, Jr (Robocop).

And here's the trailer:

Dark Matter premieres on June 12, 2015, at 10/9c.  Will you remember to watch when it drifts into prime time this summer?
