Quotes

[first lines]
John Moesby: Since the initial discovery of the alien spacecraft in 2054 by the Antigen Corporation, we have located no other remnants of the Teserand culture. Why they abandoned the vessel? What do they look like? Where do they come from? Where did they go? All we have is a tantalizing piece of machinery, and damned few answers.

Low budget does not always mean bad quality
31 August 2008 | by (DC) – See all my reviews

When this movie was first released, I took a chance and rented it and was very pleasantly surprised to find a gem. You can't say that about most straight-to-video features, but this one was the exception to the rule. True, the FX are low budget and the acting can be a little uneven but even so, taken as a whole, this movie makes for an entertaining 90 minutes or so. The miniature and FX work are actually quite good for what must have been a very small budget and what the film lacks in production dollars is more than made up for in the hard work and effort it must have taken to get this film made. Plus female lead Tracy Davis makes for one very cute cyborg girl. I'd fly her anywhere in my spaceship!
