Voyagers

 

PG-13

Voyagers takes us to the year 2063 with a group of teenage astronauts who have been training for this mission literally their entire lives. These space explorers were actually produced in a lab using DNA from different brilliant minds. Their entire mission is to find life on another planet. To keep them on task with their duties, they’re given a daily dose of a “pleasure depressant” which keeps them from having any sexual desires for their fellow workers. This is a one generation mission. When one of them learns of a contaminated filter, they discover that they are being drugged and stop “drinking the blue”. Without the depressant, boys will be boys and all Hell breaks loose. Along with these new feelings of arousal, comes a power struggle among the crew, splitting them into those who want to follow the rules of the mission, and those who want to go their own way. Best description of this is Lord of the Flies in space.
