Cleopatra in Space: US Season 1 (eps 1–13)
August 31, 2020 10:22 AM - Season 1, Episode 13 - Subscribe

Cleopatra in Space is the untold story of Cleopatra’s teenage years when she is transported to a future galaxy that is ruled by talking cats and discovers that she is the prophesied savior ‘of the universe.’ In order to prepare her to be the savior, she is sent to an elite academy where she has to train to take on the bad guys, figure out how to eventually get herself back home to Egypt, and tackle the highs and lows of being a teenager in high school. Based on the recently-concluded graphic novel series by Mike Maihack.

The distribution of Cleopatra in Space has been a confusing mess. According to Wikipedia, episodes 1–13 are available on NBC's "Peacock" streaming service, except for episode 6, which deals with a flu infection and may therefore have been deemed too sensitive to show in the US. Meanwhile, episodes 1–19 have aired in Southeast Asia, and all episodes (1–26) in Poland, South Africa, and Scandinavia.

To simplify, the scope of this post is limited purely to episodes 1–13, the first half of the full run but also the first major story arc.
