Colonials (2023)

Opening on broken ship pieces floating above Earth, a distress signal plays detailing how the planet is in ruins courtesy of The Exiles, an antagonistic moon-based civilization. Directors Andrew Balek and Joe Bland highlight the dire situation before cutting to Silas (Greg Kriek), a space colonist from Mars who’s excited to partake in an important mission to discover what happened to the ‘humans of old.’ That eagerness transforms into terror when The Exiles attack, destroying Silas’ ship and causing him to crash-land on Earth. Awakening without his memory, the colonist is found by Resistance members intent on saving the galaxy from human extinction.
