There’s no denying the current pandemic has people staying at home, and away from theaters. But we all still need a break from real life from time to time, and the movies give us that momentary escape we need. Fortunately, indie sci-fi filmmakers and big name studios alike are still putting flicks out for your enjoyment.

We’ve put together a list of fall 2020 sci-fi movies coming out this fall that promise to be epic.

This fan-made, self-funded film tells the story of the initial launching of the Starship USS Enterprise NCC-1701 under the command of Captain Robert April with his wife, Commander Sarah April, the ship’s first Chief Medical Officer.
