High Nudity level? Gore? The directing was ok, great acting though and nice moding.

Fascinating lead in. :)

I look forward to the next part.

- The story was kind of lax. You needed to have a better intro, too. And the costumes could have been better; they should have been more...scifi. I saw a guy at the bar wearing a hoody. At least mod it to look futuristic. For crying out loud, the female was wearing the 80's dress! That's not the hardest thing to mod, you know. Even I can mod costumes harder than that. I reshaped and retextured the Space Chick Short costume; and that only took me four hours to make 10 new designs. Finally, the freecam was kind of fast. Slow it down a little.

+ On the bright side, the music was pretty good, but should be more...catchy. If people remember the tune, they'll remember the movie, too. I also liked the black bars overlay. Some of the stuff you used in this movie were some of my ideas for my upcoming movie.

? Why'd you have nudity in your rating? All of the characters had their clothe's on. Not like I wanted them off or anything. @_@

Overall:
Music: 4/5 I didn't mind how loud it was in the cantina, but it could have been better.
Story: 3/5 It was short, and I didn't even hear what their names were.
Mods: 4/5 I would have liked seeing more custom mods.
Voiceovers: 5/5 Wonderful. I didn't hear any background noise, or air blown into the mic. The girl cussed when she didn't really need to, though.
Atmosphere: 4/5 Needed to have the costumes to fit the theme better.
Intro: 4/5 I liked the ship landing and all of that, but where the hell did she come from?
Ending: 3/5 Everybody hates cliffhangers. Story should've lasted longer.

3.8/5 OKAY

Each new ep of Enigma is a treat, and this is an unexpected one, as we see more outside the decks of the Atlas. As always, very nicely done with good writing, acting, editing, and always effective use of both mods and music.

Belinda does seem a little...whiny....but I'm sure she has other assets that Hero appreciates....

A slightly different start to an Enigma Ep this time. The Starship Atlas barely features at all, but a change is good, once in a while. This beginning part is a little talk heavy, but the talk isn't boring and it's building up to what looks like it could be an action-packed second part. At first I thought we were looking at a "what's in the briefcase" style thriller, but then it took a different, and potentially more interesting direction. I'll be interested to see where you're going with this one, Uber.

the voice work is the key here. neat mods, but the vo's are what make the movie happen. it's nice to hear a little acting. belinda's a babe, but she needs to lose the blue lipstick. and when you promise nudity, you should deliver. :)

i'll be sure to catch the future episodes.

Great epidode that kept me riveted till the end.
The music plays a huge role in your series, it helps define it's style.Works so well..
In one spot I felt that the music overshadowed the voice, volume-wise.

The voice acting is great in this one, great job cast!

keep it up Uber,

Very impressive look and snappy writing here. The bar scenes were excellent (the strobe was actually a very subtle effect) and the end left me hungry for more. I dont follow much sci-fi on TMO but this looks a lot crisper than most of what I have seen.

I was very surprised how fast I saw the end curtain even i was was prepared for a shorter episode... time flew by! Very well doen again!
Like I said before your series is a real gem on TMO! =)

Short but sweet!
Great VOs, as always, but Belinda was a stand out for me: really good work.
I'll leave the technical praise for the others, I know less about mods than most rockers. Suffice to say I thought it looked great.
Oh, and I heard every word in the club perfectly. Mind you, I used headphones. PC speakers suck!

What a let down! No real swearing, gore or nudity! And did you know the music in the nightclub was loud? :)

An excellent introduction to the Belinda character! Nicely done once again Ubes.

I always love the atmosphere of this series' episodes. Great ambient sounds (the crowd in the background, appropriate music, et. al.), and fresh mods are also an established trademark. The new characters are also great--I had a special affinity for that detective for some reason :D Now to wait for episode 7.

Damn, where's the nudity? lol

Nice short episode, Uber. Probably a bit too short, as not a lot really happened. But still, it was good.

One small criticism... while in that bar, the music drowned out the VOs. Please make sure we can hear the dialogue in future! That was an important part that I almost missed.

Yet again, some great mods in this film. Your use of overlays is terrific as well.

The cast were excellent, of course. I'd be surprised at anything less, really.

Nice job.

What I really like about ENIGMA is that there is an identifiable theme and logo associated with the series. What struck me as being nice was how well the sound effect and VO matched up in the shuttle as Belinda pushed the buttons and she was given clearance. That little part impressed me because it showed detail and thoughtfulness in crafting this episode. The space base by Rik_V was super and the special touches (SECURITY signs) were appropriate. I understand the ambiance you wanted to achieve in the bar scene. Another shot I loved was the slow zooming in on the Atlas bridge.... that is a great establishing shot! The whole episode was a nice 'set up'. Jenna did a great job..... I've very interested in hearing more from her. BRAVO! ====K4===

The Enigma series along with other Sci-fi projects have the imaginative content to engross viewers in it's worlds and universe. This installment was a good continuation of this impressive saga and I enjoyed it despite it's quite brief length.

Again excellent use of mods,costumes,scenes and overlays to provide a unique and distinctive visual approach. I would have liked to see the music polished off a little in terms of volumes (particularly at the club) as it seemed to drown some of the dialogue.

With that in mind, I look forward to Chapter 7 of this engrossing saga, until then...

Nuke Well in the Enigma!

Concering I had actually no idea about Enigma, I have the feeling that I just watched the right episode. As it seems she gets a new mission and has it taken?

Well, unfortunately the music in the bar really has been a bit too loud, so I did just get some sentences, but I don't want to complain. You're right, they are in a club. Instead you might should have said to the VAs they should truly shout in each other ears.

Well, I gotta watch the other episodes too! Consider me on board for the 2nd season (I might check out the Tmo HighRes Version of the first one too!). Great directing, fabolous soundtrack and nice introduction!

Awww, It ended way to early. Anyway great work on this episode, Excellent VO's. Although it was not that long, it set the scene nicely for the next episode and I still enjoyed it as much as any other episode. Nice choice of music, especially in the bar, although it threatened to drown out the conversation.

Looking forward to the next episode
Strider Out!

Good VO's! Nice sets and whatnot

Very nice work indeed!

Excellent VO work from the artists. Obviously I'd need to go back through the earlier episodes to get a handle on the small details, but the characters establish themselves very easily in a short space of time and there is clear plot direction.

The bar's music threatens to overwhelm the dialogue, unfortunately - might I suggest that you engineer a slight decrease in level to the soundtrack during moments of conversation?

Really good work - a slick and very attractive production.

Hey, nice little filler here Uber. Not much happened overall apart from the introduction of Belinda, but it was pretty fun to watch; especially that hippy guy at the end =D

I really loved the voice work in this, some excellent acting all round, as well as some great mods.

Great script too, the dialogue flowed seamlessly.

I'm definitely looking forward to the outcome in the next part!
