a FTL spaceship that can travel to Mars in 3min is nice, but i think the technology that help the astronaut contacts with Earth with no delay is fooking awesome

9:10 fuck, that shot is amazing. The blue star surrounded by the work-in-progress Dyson Sphere. Good stuff. That's why I love science fiction. Maybe I'm geeking out too much ill stop now.

Fact is "nothing could travel faster than light". If you travel at that speed or more then you will not in single piece either.

And we're supposed to not notice that they are talking to him from earth to mars with no delay at all? It takes from 5 to 20 minutes, depending on the current distance between our planets in their orbits, for a conversation to go one way from earth to mars and then another 5 to 20 minutes for his reply to get back to earth. Geez, we found that out when we sent men to the moon where it takes 2.56 seconds.

Are you paying attention? The name of the short film is FTL. It stands to reason that if - within the reality of this fictional story - they can build a ship capable to traveling faster than the speed of light, then they could also use that same technology for interplanetary communication within the solar system. FTL signals between Earth and Mars could, in theory, allow for realtime communication.

This is loaded with TNG references, kicked off by the obvious JLP line. Aside from the “face grid” at the end, the aliens have fairly closely followed the Federations rules of first contact. It’s nice to see benevolent aliens and I hope they are.

classic example of less is more.. Look at alien.. the movie.. not even 1/10th the cgi capabilities.. yet it's much more believable then this... to much CGI, that's poorly done and suspension of disbelief is gooooone

Still watching. I wonder what communication medium they are supposed to be using that sends sound and maybe video such huge distances so quickly? He has just made a huge leap at faster than the speed of light, and understandably with comms blackout, but now they have no perceptible latency from so far away. The comms miracle is just assumed, not mentioned or explained. Weird! Two alien vessels hurtle through space making a noise. What consistent gaseous matter is there in space for making travel soundwaves? Anyway, it's nice that he gets laser printed in front of his family. Does that make him a replicant?

Trivia time. The pilot Kane is played by Ty Olsson, who played Captain Aaron Kelly in the 2005+ Battlestar Galactic series, which along with the other ships had and used “FTL” in their search for earth. Cheers.

Well... That's all well and good but: 1. They know where we're from 2. They know how we got there. 3. They now the limits of our tech. 4. They the genetic makeup of a human being (they know what kills us) 5. They still have a piece of our tech to fully analyze, learning molecular compositions of basically everything on our planet. I'd say that was cause to worry...
