Trivia:
This is the first feature-length dramatic film by Backyard Productions. Previous projects have been comedies or parodies of other films.

Principal photography took place over 12 shooting days during February and March 2012 at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire. Two days of additional green-screen work took place in November 2012 at the University of Lincoln.

The set for the main Drift ship was designed in sections that could be moved and reconfigured to create the different locations within the ship. There were over a dozen different set configurations.

This film is intended as an introduction to the Starlight universe. Further stories set in this universe are in development.

This film was a community project, with the aim of demonstrating the group's capability of producing a professional-looking feature film on an ultra-low budget. Those involved included professionals, media graduates and local volunteers, some of whom had no previous film-making experience. Everyone involved gave their time for free. Costs were funded by the members of Backyard Productions, assisted by a community grant from the Lincolnshire Co-operative.

In the Captain's photograph of Angelina and a young Daniel, the child pictured is actually Ben Shahin-Scales, younger brother of Luke Shahin-Scales who plays Daniel.
