Judging from 13:50; Is the guy at the end some kind of replica or they made some modifications on him? In any case, what is the motivation of the aliens? Our technology seems like stoneage compared to theirs so they can obviously invade earth in 2 mins and do whatever they want.

Not such great science, but good effects.... Who builds a potentially interstellar vehicle with so many WINDOWS? Why are all those windows FLAT? Why would the first operator of such an inherently extremely risky vehicle be a human?

They named their experimental spacecraft "Longshot"? Wasn't that a bit of a jinx? I guess "Doomedtofailure" was too pessimistic.

Who needs Holly Weird.... these DUST shorts are really good. Just imagine if they were to make a real feature film. The acting, the story lines and the computer graphics are great.
