LOG LINE: After terminating her pregnancy and failed marriage to go on a mission to a distant planet, a tenacious first-time Captain seeks personal redemption. She finds it–––while locked in a deadly game of cat and mouse with an alien menace.

TAGLINE: "there are some places in the universe we should NOT boldly go"

SYNOPSIS: Peril is the first chapter in a futuristic trilogy about mankind's evolution and journey into deep space. In this sci-fi action thriller, Vanessa Bains a tenacious and ambitious first-time Captain struggles with her decision to terminate her pregnancy and failed marriage for a once in a lifetime opportunity to mine a distant planet.

Seeking redemption for choosing the mission over building her family she finds herself on an extraordinary journey into deep space. While on the mission, Bains must lead a crew who resents her for replacing their beloved first Captain.

Things begin to unravel horribly when a series of mysterious equipment and systems' failures leads them to mistrust one another. Much worst, the crew soon discovers that they are being stalked by a malevolent alien menace bent on their destruction. In order to survive, Captain Vanessa Bains must keep her crew together and send out an intergalactic distress signal–––what responds will changer her forever. Sometimes redemption is the beginning of a bigger journey.


Peril is a sci-fi action thriller I wrote after graduating from film school. It is in the vein of classic films like "Alien", "Blade Runner", and "2001: A Space Odyssey" with a modern twist.

Peril is the first chapter in a trilogy. The underlining plot of Peril, Perilous, and Peril: Evolution is that mankind existed thousands of years before our earliest records. He evolved, left Earth and settled in a distant galaxy where he encounters a malevolent alien race. In Peril, we are introduced to that malevolent alien race and our ancestors.


This project is at ground level. We have an A-list actress reviewing the script for the lead character Captain Vanessa Bains. For more details please contact us.
