Two sets of Earth colonists, both setting out for the planet ND492.

One crew takes the long route, sleeping for 1000 years, in secret, on a ship called The Human Frontier.

The other crew set off hundreds of years later, at hyper speed.

When the sleepers wake as they approach the planet, the hyper-speed crew have been living there for 300 years already - and they have no clue the ‘sleepers’ are about to arrive.

Part One: Possibility of Life

Two awakenings. One is unexpected, the other is a dire emergency. One brings love. Both bring danger. This is the voyage of The Human Frontier.

Part Two: Nowhere Near Neptune

There’s a world called Triton. Its people have a long history of struggle and suffering. And they’ve never heard of The Human Frontier.

Part Three: Machine Minds

Anna Swift discovers the secret future history of Earth. And Triton discovers the secret past of The Human Frontier.

Part Four: Control

Is it the Tritons, Nilly, Planet Five… ? Who is in control? And what does the future hold for The Human Frontier?

The cast are fantastic, the script is great, the music and sound design are stellar.

Blogtor Who

It’s a truly fantastic series, and one of the best Big Finish releases ever written by Nicholas Briggs.

As strong a cast as you'll find anywhere in the company's catalog, bringing this incredible world to life.

Warped Factor

Intensely ambitious, narratively complex and gripping, Human Frontier works on every level.


Based on the eventful yarn he and the Big Finish team have produced, I can’t wait for the next four hours.
