Sci-Fi Short Friday: Azarkant

In the future, a team of astronauts are sent on a ten year journey to a distant planet to find new life. On their way, they encounter a large, abandoned spaceship that is drifting in the orbit of a mysterious planet. They board the ship with anticipation of the great discoveries to uncover inside. However, they do not know what terrible secret this spacecraft keeps — a nightmarish threat which is far bigger and scarier than anything they could have imagined.


The introduction portion is clearly and heavily influence by the approach of Prometheus to LV-223 in the movie of the same name, but it’s still a very cool little science fiction short.

Note:   Sci-Fi Short Friday is a feature to showcase compelling shorts before the kickoff of the movie going weekend.  Every week I’ll try to dig up what I think are the coolest science fiction (or fantasy, or horror) short I can find.  If you have any recommendations, drop me a message.
