future warrior II

Earth and the Ursae ally against a common enemy after the events of FUTURE WARRIOR result in a truce. The tenth and probably the last independent picture from our company. Our finest and final effort at independent film production.

Hopefully never, but you never know.
During peace negotiations, the Ursae reveal that they have received several probing advances from a third species. This unknown species doesn’t need to use wormholes to travel; they are able to project their consciousness across an infinite distance by warping spacetime with matterantimatter collisions. They must have powerful equipment, although their weaponry has not yet been seen.

Essentially Earth and the Ursae have to ally against the Combine in order to avoid the incremental increase of the threat to both peoples, which is presently unknown…
