SciFi Wire has more on Virtuality, this time giving us a rundown of the show’s main characters.
Despite the mysteries, we learned a great deal about the crew of the Phaeton, who are primarily scientists. Six of the crew are married couples, including a gay couple. (And sharp-eyed fans may spot a few science and SF references in the character names.) They are:
—Frank Pike (Coster-Waldau). The mission commander. Ex-military. Coster-Waldau reported that Pike has re-created a Civil War battle in his virt module and reruns it often, trying to solve a particular historical puzzle.
—Roger Fallon (James D’Arcy). Psychiatrist. A gifted therapist and producer of an onboard reality show in which the crew members are obligated to take part, the price of their interstellar voyage. Though those two jobs might sound incompatible, Taylor said that he combines his tasks with aplomb.
—Rika Godard (Sienna Guillory). Botanist, in charge of the hydroponics. Fallon’s wife, though Guillory said that her character is having an affair with someone on the ship.
—Manny Rodriguez (Jose Pablo Cantillo). Mathematician and superstring theorist.
