The year is 2047: A rescue mission is sent to the outer reaches of our solar system to salvage the Event Horizon, a prototype spaceship mission for the last' seven years' As the crew members 'search for0 survivors, ther discover the terrifying secrets that lie within the mysterious spaceship.
Aboard the Daylight Space Station orbiting Earth, Dr. William Weir (Sam Neill) awakens suddenly from a nightmare about his dead wife, Claire (Holley Chant). Weir, a brilliant but troubled scientist, has been haunted for years by his wife's suicide.. .and the disappearance of the Event Horizon ...
The Event Horizon, a prototype spaceship was designed by Weir to reach distant stars. Instead, the ship and its crew simply vanished without a trace. Now, seven years later, an emergency beacon indicates that the Event Horizon has abruptly reappeared near the planet Neptune.
The message has been presumably sent by someone aboard the ship.
A mission is launched to salvage the Event Horizon. and, it is hoped, rescue and survivors of its crew. The trip assigned to the mission is the USAC (United States Aerospace Commandl) Lewis & Clark, a search and rescue ship named for the leaders of the famed expedition that crossed North America in 1805. The Lewis & CIark had just returned from a mission, and her crew was lookng forward to a well-deserved leave. The order to head -toward Neptune is not welcome news - but Captain Miller (Laurence Fishburne) leads a team of seasoned professionals: navigator Starck (Joely Richardson), emergency technicians Peters (Kathleen Quinlan) and Cooper (Richard T. Jores), engineer Justin (Jack Noseworthy), doctor D.J. (Jason lsaacs), and pilot Srnith (Sean Pertwee), They accept their orders and embark with Weir on the 56-day journey to reach the Event Horizon.
Only when they are in deep space, however, does Weir divulge the secrets of the Event Horizon. Weir reveals that everything they have ever heard about the fate of the ship is a lie, but they are also completely unprepared for the truth. He explains that the Event Horizon was the first spaceship designed for faster-than-light travel, a concept that they all thought was physically and technologically impossible. The ship disappeared without a trace when the gravity drive, her revolutionary engineering process, was engaged. Uneasiness becomes anxiety when Weir plays the brief, fragmented recording that is the only clue to the ship's fate -a recording of terrifying, inhuman shrieks and wails.
