Syfy dropped the first trailer for their new series Vagrant Queen and this may be just the show to fill the sci-fi show hole I’m feeling right now. Vibes that the Vagrant Queen trailer gave me:

*Farscape vibes
*Firefly vibes
*Killjoys vibes
*Stargate vibes
*Dark Matter vibes

With the recent series end to Killjoys, there is a vacancy for a dry humor-filled, space opera team-up. I think Vagrant Queen will fit the bill  In addition to this fun team-up quality, it’s got a cool and creative variety of aliens, Farscape style!

The series is based on a comic of the same name written by Magdalene Visaggio and illustrated by Jason Smith. It follows Elida (Adriyan Rae), a queen who was dethroned as a child during a revolution. She’s been on the run in the galaxy ever since, trying to always stay one step ahead of the revolutionaries who want to end her bloodline. She now lives as a kickass scavenger and outlaw. A frenemy named Isaac, (played by Wynnona Earp’s Tim Rozon) shows up and tells her that her mother, Xevelyn, is still alive. She teams up with Isaac and new ally Amae (Alex McGregor), a mechanic, to stage a rescue in her old kingdom. There’s a big bad, too, Commander Lazaro (Paul du Toit). He is described quite simply in the trailer as an “a**h***”.

One last thing. There’s a ship! No word on the ship’s name. You can see it in the poster below.

Visaggio said of her comic, “The one thing I always wanted Vagrant Queen to be was a space opera that didn’t take itself too seriously. Let other people have prophecies and Chosen Ones and restoring the ancient throne; I wanted to do a book about someone running from the past instead of eager to uncover it, where the mystery wasn’t in some mystical power or forgotten legend, but in a young woman struggling to make her own way in the universe.”

Vagrant Queen premieres on Syfy Friday, March 2. Check out the trailer below. It’s looks like a wild, fun, creative ride and we are so in!
