Welcome to the series which never ends and melts your mind, all 150 episodes of it. British space soap opera filmed in Birmingham. The action takes place aboard the Space Station Ilea (named after the recently abolished Inner London Education Authority) which orbits the Jupiter moon Callisto. There's a university on this space station with plenty of nubile, whiny students. Not much in the way of Scifi going on here; but if you hang on, there's a little bit here and there. It's mostly just self-involved, mundane lives at stake here. The sort of thing to play in the background whilst doing other things.
Trivia: The character Phillipe Gervais was named after the then associate producer Jane Fallon's partner Ricky Gervais.

This series followed the exploits of the 20-something students and crew on board a Jupiter-based spaceliner. While fans of pure sci-fi may be disappointed in the focus on the characters as opposed to alien encounters and exploration, the intrigue and relationships among the characters are addictive, making it more like a soap opera based in space than traditional sci-fi.

A fun-to-watch British soap set on a space ship orbiting one of Jupiter's Moons. The ship is a college and the stories are about the students, teachers and staff that run the ship.
