A breakthrough in interplanetary travel was the invention of the orbital Resk Hauler 7. The treads on its back are used to propel smaller vessels to higher speeds, allowing them to escape orbit and travel into deep space without using any of their own fuel.

There has been some conflict since Resk has the monopoly on Haulers and is continually increasing prices. Soon groups of renegades began attacking Haulers to take control of them for their own means.

When Sunn Industries tested their solar powered vessel for atmospheric flight SN1 for the first time, pilots kept passing out for no apparent reason. After weeks of testing they figured out that the huge engines sucked in so much of the surrounding oxygen when under high load, that no air could reach the crew. To counteract that the chassis was redesigned so that the engines are now as far away from the cockpit as structurally possible.

The Rohrmeister 66 is pure raw force. In an age where efficiency is considered the highest goal of all engineering, this beast uses more rocket fuel than a freighter, is noisier than a hover tank and at full speed only goes for 40 min before running dry. It is wasteful, dangerous, and its whole existence in general is just a bad idea.
Yet for some reason it draws people to it in flocks. Sales have skyrocketed and Rohrmeister is laughing all the way to the bank

@Sujee Agreed, those scenes were really impactful. Colour is often overlooked in that context, but once you open that Pandora's Box and start focusing on it you'll see it everywhere. :) I love how films can be enjoyed and taken apart on so many levels, whichever you enjoy most.

@Sujee I enjoyed it a lot, too! It's really well crafted and I'm very glad I went to see it. Will probably go back to focus more on shots and composition - usually my brain is so concentrated on colour it's hard to keep track of all the other stylistic devices haha.

What's your favourite part?

Have you watched Joker yet?

I have just published an article on the movie’s use of colour as a story telling element. Colours in films are not random or merely aesthetic, but a very deliberate device that can make a story truly shine. Read my post to learn more about how Joker expresses its symbolism through primary colours, shot composition and costume:

Enormous ornamental engravings were discovered on a Saturn moon, but the influx of visitors is slowly washing them away.
The only one to stand in the way of decay is Isabelle: the 106 year old archaeologist has dedicated her retirement to refurbishing the ancient designs. Over the last 34 years no day passed where she wasn't in the fields taking care of "her moon" with her tiny ship, lovingly named "Baby-Shark" for its large fin. It's a lonely fight she leads.

The Rotocorp S4 is a tiny close range ship for one pilot. It has a light, low-powered thruster, but since the entire ship has a mass of next to nothing compared to traditional vehicles, its torque is massive and a pilot can experience a G-force of up to 4.6 G. It is used by couriers to travel between different orbital stations and as a recreational vehicle, but can also be retrofitted with small caliber weaponry, making it popular among militias and insurgents.

The King Arthur 11 was the first probe ever developed to travel through Einstein–Rosen bridges - also known as wormholes.

After decades of travelling it suddenly disappeared and was never heard of again.

Only recently a historian discovered ancient military documents from the 20th Century reporting the sighting of an unusual meteorite that emitted the signature radio signal of the King Arthur 11 before crashing into the Pacific Ocean in a fiery explosion.
