Bottom Line: Sure the voice acting is uneven but with alien abductions, freedom fighters, robots and melodrama, this series has all the ear marks of a great space opera and it doesn’t disappoint.

Even though alien invasion stories are classic Sci-Fi fare, you really see something this elaborate done as a web series. It was refreshing to watch it play out so well. Of course, there could always be a few more twists but the writing and setting were both solid, making this series a must see for Sci-Fi fans. (Storytelling 4)
The only problem I had was that the voice acting quality was uneven. It felt like the voices were recorded on a bunch of different mics. Some sound clear, some muffled, and others tinny. This really throws off the sense of immersion in places. Otherwise the camera work and animation are solid. (Polish 3.5)
It’s a Machinima Space Opera so expect a host of characters, laser fire and a lot of time spent developing characters. Even when the episodes cross the 10 minute barrier they move quickly enough to keep you engaged. They also manage to balance action sequences with slower paced segments of exposition. (Watchability 4)
