This 2013 FUTURESTATES short directed by Nanobah Becker stars a Navajo astronaut on a mission to colonize Mars.
Tropes from this work include:
- The Federation: All nations have come together, including the Navajo nation.
- Gaia's Lament: Humans must colonize Mars because Earth is unusable.
- Ignored Expert: The Navajo general is creeped out by the spaceship corn.
- Mega-Corp: The Omnicorn Corporation colonizes Mars with their special breed of corn.
- Phlebotinum Breakdown: The genetically-modified corn stops producing oxygen, endangering the colonization mission.
