Dark Matter #1 is the first issue in the Dark Matter series, written by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie.


On board a ship deep in space, six people awake from stasis. Each member of the crew realises they have no memory of who they are or what they are doing on board the ship. After restoring life support the crew split into pairs to explore, Portia with Kid, Marcus with Griffin and Ryo with Jace. Ryo and Jace visit the training room where Ryo shows he is skilled with swords. Marcus and Griffin come across an Android who attacks them before he is disabled. After deleting the Android's security directives the crew reboot the Android and ask him to check through the ship's logs for any information but no data can be found. While running a diagnostic on the ship, the Android picks up a vessel which is approaching their location and has launched two missiles.
