SYFY has revealed the first trailer for its upcoming science fiction series The Ark. The clip follows a remaining crew of a spacecraft known as Ark One wherein all the “people responsible to run the ship are dead.” The trailer perfectly sets up the stakes as the remaining crew gears up to become the best versions of themselves to stay on course and survive as the ship gets off course after an impact. Full of brilliant minds on board, the crew must make it through the catastrophic event for the survival of the human race.
