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. The ship never arrived. General Rothman immediately launches an investigation team, and is determined to get to the bottom of ... Written by

One day... someone associated with this film... will get mucho kudos.
OK, you've already read enough to decide to watch this or not. First, I want to thank all the actors who participated in this obviously short indie movie. And the director for using every ounce of good acting in these folks. They didn't fail you. Put it all in a jar, shake it up, it's no one's fault it's murky.
The commander at the start of the movie caused me to see Captain Sheridan of Babylon 5. When we're bringing in the Scotty person... they're actually from Firefly, not Star Trek.
OK, the Scotty boy went to see the obviously alien prisoner and had an explosive device that exploded causing quite a ship-wide catastrophe.
Now this confused me A LOT. Bang and everyone is still there? Wait, wait, watch, wait... hey.... maybe that boom thing was a remote control because no one around it suffered a boom. But the ship sure did.
I'm going to give it 3 stars. Start with 5, knock off one for being shorter than most TV episodes. Knock off another for confusion and worrisome acting. The "special effects"....ah... did someone pay the Babylon 5 make up guy some money? We do have a dangerous and sexy alien.
There are the sexy skills fighting of Jennifer Garner (ala Alias) but in a Babylon 5 decked out type of alien make-up.... who can essentially kick ass. Just like they straight-out-told-you about the time of the "prisoner transfer". (Good make up job!) I have a few questions though. Why did the Firefly "Scotty" go bozo? Well, never-mind.... lots of questions.
This movie may have been a really cool episode of a really good science fiction series where there are plenty of episodes before and after this one. This one, credit where credit is due, does conclude. It didn't make me say, "Oh, yeah, now I get it!" but it was a conclusion that may spark some fun ideas... not unlike Alien with Sigorney Weaver. Her real name is Susan, lets stop this Siggy nonsense.
If you have an hour until dinner and you can get this on your 10 inch tablet in your kitchen... and you don't mind missing everything as you toss the salad while the casserole is cooking. Good call. You won't "get it" any better than I did but you'll feel like you got in a movie while making dinner.
Never-mind that it isn't really "movie" length. I have been unfair a bit though. While I could criticize this thing until the cows come home, I don't feel like I wasted any of my time. I think who ever put this together with (I hear) a limited budget, is someone who has the basics down on how to tell a story in film. I think one day they will be widely recognized. But not for this one.
