    "FTL" by Adam Stern

    A lone astronaut testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft travels farther than he imagined possible.

    Ethan Kane, a NASA Astronaut and decorated pilot, has recently retired from active duty to spend more time with his wife and young son. As he tries to adjust to a quieter life on the ground, he’s approached to fly one last mission...testing the first faster-than-light spacecraft. While the world watches, Kane takes The Longshot on its maiden voyage.

    Why does that guy's control panel sound like Ned Flanders?

    unrealistic, sounds in vacuum and, i mean, you would expect there'll be more people at the Huston or something.

    That moment when the government has a secret rule it has to tell the people everything they know and it secretly comes out in movies or shows and no one knows

    That feeling of making your first FTL jump, just to discover earth was nothing more than an observation post in an already colonized universe.

    That was so epic! The first contact of an omega advance alien race. More advance than the asgard and the ancient in star gate sg1 and Atlantis. More advance than star track and star wars. This alien race is more advance than all the scifi i have seen so far.

    Ditto on the helmet comments. Especially when the pilot knows that there's been a hull breach. But then again the "space suit" seemed to be just a surplus flight suit. Low budget but good FX.

    He was travelling at the speed FTL. So according to the lorentz factor and time dilation theory, he should have returned home before he left.

    It has adequate cowbell. That's good but it looks like an ftl lawn mower. Lawnshot.

    Welp... Hope that wife likes that dopelganger. I mean... There's no two way about it. Teleportation is all about destroying the original and making a copy elsewhere. That pilot's dead.

    just like the speed of light....his communications with Earth from Mars orbit would also take at least a three minute delay, both ways. Radio waves are a form of light.

    Nice that a "small" production can tell such a big story. But, guys-- however you get your YT end credits done-- open them back up, I -- me -- want to see everyone who worked on this story.
    Looks good, acting good, design good, script of necessity, short. A lot is counted on to be understood.
