Empire‘s combination of hip-hop, high fashion, and high drama has proven to be a hit since the very first episode premiered on Fox in January 2015. Created by Lee Daniels and Mark Strong, the story of patriarch Lucious Lyon, Cookie (the ex-wife who’s coming from a 17-year jail stint), their families and associates offers a compelling mix of music, crime, and family drama that clearly found its audience.

When something goes wrong in space, it’s just you, some metal, a whole lot of combustible fuel, and the dark, cold loneliness of space.
