Thru the Moebius Strip

Synopsis: Physicist Simon Weir invents a portal that can in theory take people to unimaginably distant locations millions of light years away. He tests the portal and never returns. Everyone believe he's dead and the portal is forgotten. His son Jac however does not believe this. When he's 14, he finds his father's portal and decides to go after his dad. He emerges on a strange alien planet of giants, who follow a code of honor similar to Earth's medieval chivalry. Jac meets some friendly locals and finds out that his father is still alive, but imprisoned. The aliens make no distinction between technology and magic, so Jac plans to use this to rescue his dad. What he doesn't realize is that stakes are much hire than that.

When the human race reaches the first stars

The time will come

And a new era is born

and the eternal question will be asked

What will this hold for what we call - humanity?

What's more important Simon, your son or your


That's not fair, Caroline. I've worked for the past 2 years

perfecting this technology.

I can't just quit! Keep practicing those moves.

I will be home for dinner.

I've heard that before.

So have I.

Oh Simon... the capacitors are almost fully charged!

Arthur, your as bad as Simon!

It runs in the programming!

Love you!

Bye, Dad.

All right, Arthur. Let's see how stable this is.

This is looking good, Simon.

Confirm spatial differential.

Come on, baby, come on!

Confirmed. Far side telemetry initiating.

Connection established and secured.

Searching star charts. Location confirmed.

Virgo cluster, unknown planetary mass.

Yes! Finally. One more step, Arthur, and we will never

have to worry about funding again!

Discharging in three, two, one.

Simon you've done it!

I had my doubts.

Overcoming doubts will only strengthen you.

Come on. Help me with my suit.

Hover Platform engaged. Powering particle emitters.

Powering particle emitters.

All systems are go!

To enter the portal without proper back-up.

It is a breach of your own security protocol

I've run the simulation program a dozen times.

Everything is fine.

I have to take the next step now!

I can't afford to wait for more tests

Platform data stream secure. Communications channel


Bio-Suit integrity... one hundred percent.

Body life signs normal.

Simon, I won't be able to reach you

if you're farther than 10 meters from the portal.

Don't worry, I won't be long.

Seismic sensors activated.

Terrain... stable.

Analyzing atmospherics... stand by

Environment suitable for carbon based life forms.

I'm going to take a quick look around.

This is amazing, Simon. We're getting everything on this


Alert, alert!

- Simon, I'm getting something on the scanner.

Something big!

Behind you. You must get to the portal, Simon!!!


get me out of here!

Oh, no!!! Simon! You must get to the portal, Simon!!!

Try and grab my arm!

Bio-suit life signs terminated.

Tracking beacon, "Non-operational

data-stream disrupted. Warning, Warning.

Unknown error. Portal connection lost.

No! Simon! Simon!!!

Emergency shutdown initiated.


I have a gift for the High Priestess!

I have trapped this creature in the forest.

But it is unlike anything I have seen before.

Go your way and speak of this to no one.

Good shot Ragis

just as I taught you.

You are getting as good with that bow,

as your little friend is at learning the ways of the high


Can I keep him?

Yes, my young Ragis.

But that means you will be responsible for our small


Shepway, where is it come from?


You've found your fathers wristband.

He'd want you to have it.

Jac, he's

...missing! He's missing, mom.

That means he can be found.

It's been 7 years, honey

That's a long time.

You have to start looking forward.

I've heard his voice

calling out to me, trying to reach us

Jack, you were dreaming

The same dream for 7 years?

He's out there, mom

trying to get home. I know it

Sometimes we want something so badly.

We convince ourselves that it's true.

Your Father is gone Jack

you have to accept it.

Not until I find out for sure what happened to dad.

You know what happened.

All we know is that he was working on a classified project

at a secret location.

He told us he was coming home

but he never showed up.

I wanna know why.

Jac, I understand.

I miss him too.

I just wanna find him.


Scanning all binary nodes.

All nodes are negative for DNA or sensory algorithms.

Access to advance core function restrictive by the

planetary collective.

Any Violation of collective code

Subchapter C Beta 925

Another dead end!

Time grows short.

Tor has almost finished building his army.

And lead an attack against Tor

before he gains the strength of his forces.

Only Ragis can lead Raphicca away from Tor's treachery

and back into the light.

Unless he learns the truth

he will never raise arms against Tor.

Then it is time he learns that truth.

And what about Simon?

Good! Good!

Good, Ragis, keep the movement flowing.

Yes. That was great, Ragis! You're a natural warrior.

My father told me the same thing.

Jack is a very fortunate son to have a father like you!

I've been perfecting this portal for 7 years now.

I've tried so many times,

but haven't been able to get the slip-stream to align.

But you have talked to Jack.

You' seen him thru the portal opening.

Yes, I just don't know if he was able to hear or see me!

With these new modifications

and Shepway's help, I know I will be successful this time.

Getting home is all I've dreamt of since I've arrived here.

But I never realized how painful it was going to be to

leave you


I always knew you would return to your family.

But now that the day has come,

I cannot envision my life without you.

You'll never be without me, Ragis.

I may not be here physically,

but our spirits will always be linked.


I've done everything I can do, Shepway.

I need your gifts to bring the Portal to life.

One of my crystals has been lost!

Will your remaining crystals

be strong enough to engage the Portal?

We shall see.
