There really is no story line, and very little is shown of the alien "mothership," which is the high point of the 3D artwork and a very interesting object. I would rather have seen much more of it. I also found the music, while well done, not to my taste and not very fitting for the animations. The different worlds seemed very much alike to me, with lots of orange seas and skies and similar terrain.
While I don't like to pan anyone's work, particularly when I know how difficult such a piece is to create, I would not recommend this DVD except as a historical piece to demonstrate where desktop computer animation was in the 90s compared to today. If you expect any kind of story line or lots of detailed looks at well rendered spaceships, you will be disappointed. If I had seen this before I bought it, I would not have gotten it.
I have not looked at the DVD-rom (computer only) parts yet, they may be better.
respect,the people giving this dvd 5 stars must not
watch too much CGI. This is basically multi-colored
terrain done completely on desktop computers. The
music is even worse. The only way to salvage this
disc is to put on some music of your own and hope
for the best!
