A small research vessel is knocked down by a meteor shower, triggering a panicked military response and causing hundreds of civilian casualties.

An endearing and distracting movie. Recommended, even though the dubbing is exaggerated and loud.

An scout tracks the origin of Voyager 2, only to be attacked on the way down and forced to adapt to make it there with human methods.

A very well acted, 1980s budget but with a lot of locations and a great story. Truly recommended.

The universe is actually ruled by an emperor, who toys with the Earth and gets the attention of a few people who try to stop him.

Fun and silly and not for me.
