Ridley Scott, the creative genius behind legendary Hollywood classics including Alien, Blade Runner and Gladiator, makes his Quest debut with the brand new eight-part series, Prophets of Science Fiction. An auteur of science fiction himself, Scott goes from behind the camera to on-air guide to explore the relationship between genre and the constantly-evolving worlds of science and technology. From Jules Verne and Isaac Asimov to George Lucas and Phillip K. Dick, the dreams of storytellers often become the inspiration for researchers seeking mankind's next transformative discovery. Each episode of Prophets of Science Fiction focuses on a visionary sci-fi figure whose spark of imagination changed our reality.
