A bunch of young and impulsive space navy cadets make their first real space flight and realize that the attack they suffered was not a training mission. They lose their senior officers in the opening battle, then through luck and guile attempt to defend a helpless colony. They face the enemy alone and have the chance to save the world, and maybe to prevent the war? Can the cadets conquer the more experienced, stronger and much more evil enemy?

Quite good
9 November 2005 | by mjarvis0See all my reviews

I have to disagree with negatives comments about this movie. I have watched it and to be sure it does not compare to the likes of Star Trek, Star Wars, Babylon 5 etc. However it was a plausible story and the effects while not top notch were adequate. It portrayed the darker side of human nature when one of the cadets shirked from his duties, faced a court martial and then took his own life.

The ladies uniforms were easy on the eye for us men folk however all that was exposed was thighs. It is not as though you lived in fear that one of their boobs was about to fall out. I did not know that this film represented a pilot episode and I think that it would have been hard to make a series out of the film because the story was pretty much closed and I myself was not left feeling that I wanted more. However to reiterate,it was a decent movie and one that I would have no trouble watching again should I come across in the TV listings.
