    This ending is like the ending of 2001, we walk out of the theater asking just what happened. Now, we're asking "what happens next". It's a first-contact situation, do we get any further contact?
    They are the ones that sucked him away from Mars. He didn't trespass.
    It's very similar to STVIII: First Contact, where the Vulcans have been watching us take the first step in warp tech, and then they come visit us. Maybe these aliens are of a form that they can't just land and walk up to say hi.
    Where's the kickstarter to fund the next episode?

    "Make it so ...". Already, Picard and crew discovered that faster-than-light, or "warp" travel destabilizes the space/time continuum. Can you imagine how any "Federation" cop-watch of whatever star empires that are out there won't forfeit from any infant-level space travellers within their realm functionally forbidden technology?
    By returning the pilot unharmed as a witness to a god-level spacing constable, playpen Earth will be expected to presume at least generally what space-travel science it must avoid. We should also imagine that the second lesson won't be so loving.

      I thought the same thing at first, but it was explained (by the news repoter in the background) that the main purpose for the trip was to deliver an entangled satellite for real time communication to the Mars colony. It stands to reason that if the satellite had entangled communication tech, then the ship would as well.

    Now I get that he purportedly traveled faster than light, but there's no indication that his coms travel faster than light. Contrary, his coms got knocked out during travel and there's no way he could talk directly with Earth upon arrival at Mars. Unless, of course, they have coms that can bend space/time as well as that ship does...

    Guys here's the thing- if a civilization has managed to make warp drive then that civilization has certainly mastered dyson spheres too! Because in order to power a device like warp drive you need an enormous amount of energy which can only be harnessed from stars! So some wrong facts there.. but its okay coz it's a great short film! Loved it!

    At first we´ll be able to ride with the speed of light and after we are going to colonize mars, sure. What ever, I don´t think weak humanity will ever colonize the earth´s moon, and of course, they will never travel with the speed of light. Perhaps it is just the deepest wish of our souls, leaving this planet as fast as it is possible. Nevertheless, good shortmovie.

A few issues, he has what appears to be a pressure suit with accommodations for a helmet, where is the helmet when there is a hull breach? Also a pressure suit without gloves?

      @Jason Samfield The aliens broke him down at the atomic level, and then 3D Printed him back together on Earth to be with his family. So, would he still be him? Or just a copy of him? Even if it used all his old material to reprint the new one? Even if their intention was not malicious. That is the moral dilemma.

    When the Kane says "I'm being pulled into a new vector.", it can mean a couple things. I have a theory that the aliens have technology to pull doomed ships out of FTL to save their crew and return them to their planets. I don't know why else he would happen to appear so close to an alien race and get such a quick and passive response.

      Having something that heavy travelling FTL or even near lightspeed in realspace has a serious amount of energy in it, making it likely also a threat for advanced civilisation. Just like we now try to clear up space debris around earth they might just remove any ftl craft moving out of control as a safety hazard.
