University Base: Alpha Centauri

In the 21st century, situation takes a turn for the worse. Civilization is crumbling, the Earth is dying. In 2060, United Nations sends a colony ship - U.N.S. Unity - to a newly discovered planet orbiting Alpha Centauri's primary star.

Among the small group of colonists to leave the ravages of Earth is Prokhor Zakharov, a brilliant scientist desperate to flee the chaos of his motherworld to start anew beneath an alien sky.

This is his story.

A huge fan of 'Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri', I've made this short film to celebrate its 25th anniversary on 2024-02-09.

I've had so much fun working on the film in my gradually diminishing free time, that I decided to continue the story with at least a few more installments.
