The Gagarin is a spaceship owned by the Eligius Corporation which originated from Earth. It transported prisoners from Earth's Asteroid Belt mining colony to Earth. The people in the ship are from before the first Nuclear Apocalypse.

History Edit

In Praimfaya, six years and seven days after Praimfaya, a ship descends down on Earth's surface. It was seemingly involved with the mining of asteroids and the transportation of humans to and from the Asteroid Belt. It was, at first, misinterpreted by Clarke Griffin to be the ship carrying Bellamy and the others back to Earth.

Notes and Trivia Edit

  • The name "Gagarin" could derive from the first man in space, Yuri Gagarin.
  • Showrunner Jason Rothenberg teased that the prisoners aboard the ship will, at first, be antagonists.[1] Unlike the juvenile delinquents, these arrivals are "real hardened criminals"[2] and will be a threat.[3]
    • The prisoners are from before the first nuclear apocalypse and were in hypersleep.[4]
    • They include: Charmaine Diyoza, a former military strategist;[5] Paxton "Graveyard" McCreary, an enforcer from a powerful crime syndicate;[6][7] and Vinson, a serial killer.[8]
