SYNOPSIS:
Two quirky NASA janitors accidentally blast themselves into outer space on mysterious craft Voyager PEN-15, only to find out that they are heading towards a seemingly violent alien planet.

PRINCIPLE CHARACTERS:

ALEX: Male, 20-35. Janitor at NASA. A disillusioned dreamer. He naively makes the best out of a bad situation. His enthusiasm outshines his shortcomings.

MIKE: Male, 35-55. Janitor at NASA. A neurotic pessimist. He uses a dry sense of humor to mask his loneliness.

SUPPORTING CHARACTERS:

YOUNG ALEX (Male, 5-8): Excited, young boy who dreams of one day becoming an astronaut. Loves the idea of space travel.

ASTRONAUTS (Male, 20-35): Two attractive, young men who show Alex that he was wrong to look to astronauts as heroes. Douchey, frat-boy types.
They are better than everyone else. Speaking roles.

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES (Male, 40-60): Not the brightest, clearly a puppet leading the nation. Stereotypical politician type.
Delivers the news of our two main characters’ doom. Speaking role.

ALEX’S MOM (Female, 40-55): Theatrical, over-the-top. Overly supportive of her son but is able to turn angry on a dime. Speaking role.

ALEX’S DAD (Male, 40-55): Theatrical, over-the-top. Overly supportive of her son but is able to turn angry on a dime. Speaking role.

ALIENS (Female, 20-30): MOCAP CHARACTERS. Interesting voice.
Interesting, expressive face. The ALIENS save our main characters from their doom and make peace with them. Speaking roles.

NASA CREW (Male or Female, 30-60): Scientists. The brains behind the operation that is PEN-15. Some are real people and some are holograms.
