Roger Nelson (Brandon Ray Olive) is selected to go on a deep space mission to check out signals that indicate intelligent life, similar to "2001..." and there is a computer issue too, but that is where the similarity ends. Roger leaves behind his wife (Whitney Palmer) on a multi-year mission of which he spends time in "stasis." Must must visit a moon of Saturn, a moon of Neptune and a remote planetoid. Seems to be traveling at about 4 times faster than what we are capable of doing now. And there were time delays in transmissions.

Fifty years after "2001..." and they haven't been to improve on the special effects. The ship flying in space looks like Clutch Cargo animation. The light on the remote planets was way too much and even with far less gravity, Roger had trouble climbing. It never showed the lower gravity, less light, or extreme cold. If you watch the subtitles "delicate" is spelled "delectate." Clearly not a Stanly Kubrick production.

The production amounts to a one man play. In spite of the so-so planet effects, it held my interest and could have a sequel, hopefully with better funding and a green screen.

The back story was omitted. Roger is the grandson of Anthony Nelson who was named for his friend Roger Healey...okay just kidding.
