Floating dead in space, transport ship Genesis becomes an unsolvable mystery. All hands on board have been killed. What began as a simple transport mission for the crew of the Genesis, ends with not only their bloodshed, but the loss of an important military prisoner. The people of earth are in a time of crisis. They are waging war against a far superior opponent, an alien race called the Cnidarians. After a bloody assault on a military ship, the Vendetta, USSM special forces were able to capture their first Cnidarian prisoner, code named 71099. But commonly known through out the fleet as Ediolon, the phantom. Realizing that a military transport would be too obvious of a target to their enemy, the USSM enlisted the freelance ship Genesis, commanded by Nathaniel J Rhys to secretly transport the prisoner to the high security prison located on Mars' moon Demos.

For a forty-three minute film, this is very well paced. There is only a single scene where some viewers might say "Get to the action already." Fortunately, this scene is short and used for necessary character (and ship) development.
Speaking of scenes, there's a fight scene that was nice to watch if not slightly crowbarred in (Wait, what? Oh, it's a fight scene), and props to everyone involved for doing a jump scare that I failed to see coming.
Right off the bat, this appears to be a low budget movie with actors who will be much better with two more years of experience. Upon accepting this, I found the movie very enjoyable and having a rabbit hole of a story that has the most important and interesting parts carefully revealed during the last ten minutes.
I would like to see Enigma's universe expanded upon with novels or comics someday. There's clearly something there that is only hinted at during the movie. Anyone who enjoys analyzing stories will definitely like the ending, not that it's vague. It just presents something unexpected and interesting without wasting fifteen minutes thoroughly explaining it.
I can hear my mother now asking me to explain what the ending meant. If you're that type of person, I would recommend watching this with someone who doesn't mind explaining endings to you. Not to say that it's complicated, though. Some people--my mother included--might walk away with a few questions burning their brain.
