Beacon 23 Season 1 Episode 3 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Beacon 23 Season 1 Episode 3

Beacon 23 should be of great interest to those who liked Apple TV’s Silo. This new series is adapted from the novel by author Hugh Howey. Beacon 23 is a sci-fi show that is set in the 23rd century, unfolding on a remote space “lighthouse.” The central idea of the plot revolves around characters who are stuck “on the edge of the universe” in Beacon number 23. 

Lena Headey, Stephan James, Marnie McPhail, and Sydney Ozerov-Meyer are the star names heading the ensemble. The official synopsis of the show reads:

“Aster Calyx and Halan Kai Nelson are inextricably drawn to Beacon 23. Navigating one threat after another, they unravel the beacon’s mysteries, just in time to face their most powerful enemy.

What happened in Episodes 1 and 2?

Beacon 23 is a light tower in outer space surrounded by dark matter. Built by QTA, a corporation, B23’s original beacon keeper, Solomon has been replaced by an imposter, Halan. He is a soldier gone AWOL and is hiding at the beacon. Solomon’s personal AI assistant, Bart, accuses Halan of killing Solomon. But he maintains that Solomon ran off with his ship. Halan’s solitary existence is disturbed by an incoming ship called Crest.

Due to his systems malfunctioning, Halan isn’t able to guide them away from the surrounding dark matter. As a result, they crash into it and vaporize. All aboard die except Aster, whose pod is rescued by Halan. She is brought on board and quickly becomes suspicious of him as Halan has no idea of Aster’s previous dealings with Solomon.

She has secrets of her own as she is herself hired by QTA. She is after a set of rocks with potentially groundbreaking mineral deposits. Aster and Harmony lock Halan into an airlock as B23 is invaded by a group of wreckers. They aren’t able to do too much damage as Halan and Aster emerge from the invasion without getting hurt.
