This was a pretty good job for a first flick - had a strong story that was easy to follow.

I think you need a bit more characterization, though - if you're planning on doing multiple short episodes (which is a good idea) you need characters, even if they are aliens, that the viewer is either cheering for or booing. So far, you really don't have that.

Pacing on the story was good - there were some continuity errors (the human in the planet battle, the shovelhead alien in the ship corridor) - your cover with the subtitles was funny, but would have been better if you'd caught it before shooting and post production - after having a couple of similar problems, I now make sure I watch every scene in the scriptwriting office, and make sure everything is right, before I go to post production.

Still, this was a good effort, and you have an ambitious project planned. With some work and more familiarity with the tools, you should have a terrific series here. Good job.

I like the Battlestar-esque name! You are one creative person if you can keep interest in a series for that long! I wish you good luck! Now, when it comes to this episode, it's not too bad, yet the subtitle length slash timing is a little poor, and I did get kind of bored toward the end. Good attempt.
