Ice Planet: Movie

In the brief period of peace after a terrible war in a far future Earth, an outer-space military academy is attacked by an unknown and unstoppable alien force. The commander of the academy, along with a group of newly graduated cadets, escapes to a large research station. Pursued by the aliens, the station jumps through a mysterious hyperspace gateway that sends them to a planet in an unknown part of the universe. Where are they, and will they ever be able to return to Earth? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The end of our world is the beginning on another…

I’m always looking for unusual, or underrated science fiction. This one stars Wes Studi, as  Commander Trager. I’ll cut to the chase, its a little cheesy, the F/X are so-so, and the sets are very DS9/Star Trek. Not very shocking, given it was directed by Winrich Kolbe, who had a career of directing Star Trek pilots, beginning with Star Trek: TNGEncounter At Farpoint.  This also was meant to be a pilot for a TV series which has yet to be. It likely never will get made.

Overall 3 stars. Enjoy it for what its worth.
