Introduction

The title Dark Matter refers to both a comic book series and a Canadian TV show that features the same characters and story threads as its predecessor. Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie are the creators of both the Dark Matter comic book and the TV show that it inspired. Both the comic and the show are Space Operas (in the vein of Star Wars and Ender's Game) that follow a crew of amnesiacs who are stranded in deep space. The original Dark Matter comic ran for four issues while the TV show lasted for three full seasons on the Syfy network before getting canceled. The show has a very vocal fanbase who are calling for a fourth season revival, even to this day.

Dark Matter Inspired Dog Name Considerations

At its core, Dark Matter is a Space Opera that focuses more on mystery and subterfuge than theoretical science or family drama. The main characters of both the TV show and the comic have no clue who they are, where they are, or how they got there by the time their story begins. As their tale progresses, we gradually learn facts about starship Raza's crew that makes us view them in an entirely new light. Dark Matter differs from other Space Operas by placing a heavy emphasis on plot and character development. If you like well-written mystery stories, then you should give Dark Matter a shot. If you become a big fan of the series, then you should consider naming your dog after one of Dark Matter's intricate and fleshed out characters.

You might also want to consider giving your dog a Dark Matter inspired name as an act of protest against the show's abrupt cancellation. The Syfy network canceled Dark Matter just one week after the show's season three finale. They canceled the show in spite of its strong critical reception and dedicated fan following. To this day, devout Dark Matter fans are fighting to get the show renewed for a fourth season. If you'd like to see the show make a comeback as well, consider giving your dog a Dark Matter inspired name as a way of showing solidarity with the cause.
