    This short film is way more better and meaningful than Hollywood block busters. We human think we know everything, but compared to an advanced alien civilization, be it biological or AI, we are at their mercy.

    This was really good. my only criticism... the main actor's facial expressions. on the ship he had an "something wrong" face when he was doing routine stuff. and when the aliens brought him back to earth, his initial rezzing face was ... weird. otherwise, amazing short film I'd like to see in a movie or series. just please, cast Abraham Benrubi as the main star, and a son who actually looks like he has his mother's DNA(although its completely geneticaly proven a kid can just look like one parent).

    Aliens be like "Nope, you don't deserve this tech, back home to where you came from squishy organic thing until you can learn to stop killing each other and your planet and being racist and building walls - you clearly can't get along on a tiny planet, let alone the galaxy."

    Well, a short film, with a Pink end!!. But of course, we know, reality,won`t be so merciful!!. The true, I`d prefer a more weird & fantastic end.No this one,"So Rossi", and so hard to believe!!.

    The moral is don't try to go faster than light, because you'll create trouble not only for your family but also for the ghosts of good Samaritans.

    At the end of your life do you look at the picture of your wife and kid that youve seen a million times or do you look at the aliens and all the crazy s**t around you? Screw the wife and kid.

    I´m not a physicist or anything, but from what I´ve read, that FTL ship appears to use a scheme similar to what we currently believe an FTL ship would look like. Plus, quantum entanglement ftl communications, although not really accurate, has some basis in reality.

    The only problem I have with this is that 15 minutes it's to bloody short. So I hope that they make a longer version soon or even turn it into a series. As a Trekhead I loved it.

  • Jean François Girard

    Well done! Two thumbs-up to Mr. Stern and his team - we now need a full prod on this ... just wow :)

    This stuff should be fully worked and on the widescreen. These days, I tend to question the entire NASA narrative and even the astrophysics science itself, however, we are all still enamoured by fantasy. This was excellent.

    Amazing... But Mars would be too close for warp drive and warp drive would have to be done outside of the solar system (unless you want the solar system crashing into the ship.) The nearest star is Alpha Centauri this would be the first place we will go to when light speed becomes possible, at light speed, it will take around 4 and half years to get there.

    Was good till the boiler plate wife and child scenes far over took majority of the short 14:06 time.

    Consider the possibility of more advanced earth sapiens saving a less advanced alien species when they lost in space. Probably the second thought of human race would be to know the location of their planet,go there,invade, pollute and finally dooms day there too...😂😂😂😂😂😂
