Icarus XB - 1
It is the year 2163, and the philosophical crew groove through space to minimalist lounge-core, en route to a mysterious 'white planet' orbiting Alpha Centauri. A blast from the nuclear past, and emanations from a 'dark star' bring grief, neurosis and mental breakdown, but this Czech adaptation of Stanislaw Lem's Magellan Cloud never loses the plot.
