Our movie opens with a fade in to a view from space, though it is not the solar system we are familiar with. Instead, the camera zooms in toward a colossal green planet. In the distance, other planets can be seen orbiting an enormous star. As we continue to zoom in toward this foreign planet, we focus closer toward one of the moons orbiting it. Closer and closer, we as an audience come to realize this is not a moon, but in fact an enormous starship (think “Death Star”). The center of this ship contains the greatest coliseum ever constructed – a monument in engineering, it houses 10 million occupants – simply unfathomable. The trouble is that as we zoom faster, down, down through the stands of cheering and applause, we realize that there are not humans witnessing the occasion on the floor of the battle ring, but hundreds of different species of extraterrestrial intelligent life. Some are grotesque, others curiously attractive. And as the zoom begins to slow as we reach the bottom of the coliseum, we gain comfort as an audience when we witness a minority – a small group of human spectators (maybe 50) on the edge of the ring. They are watching nervously at what is happening in the middle of the coliseum.
Enter Godric – Hero of the Humans, Ambassador to Earth. This man fights for not only his survival, but also the continuation of the human race. Should he perish in battle, the Galactic Myrrians, a race impossibly strong and intelligent, will disintegrate Earth, eliminating humans from existence. The Myrrians, through the battles they have orchestrated, attempt to find a worthy adversary in the Galaxy, while eliminating the rest of the Inferiors in the Milky Way. Godric stands in the battle ring, in full body armor and armed with a large proton spear – a weapon that every ambassador uses in battle. At the opposite end, a large, crocodile-like alien smirks at his smaller opponent – an easy victory. Godric was chosen by the Myrrians because of his heroism in the war between Humans and Kleptics, a race that had set out to destroy the Humans in 2849 AD – a war that the humans had won and a race that Godric stands before now. Eager to avenge the death of his brothers, the Kleptic is fierce and ready for battle; the loser facing irreversible consequences. Godric looks back toward the stands, and a beautiful woman, Abigail, the love of his life, looks back and smiles at him. Their love is unquestionable – it is the only thing that drives Godric. He and the Kleptic battle, and Godric’s agility and cunning outweigh the Kleptic’s brute force. Godric emerges victorious, and the Myrrians announce the destruction of Kleptos. A grid with only 20 or so planets remaining displays a bright yellow one that suddenly disappears. The familiar blue orb of Earth still shines brightly along with the other few remaining planets.
This first encounter between Godric and the Kleptic takes place toward the middle of his time on the Myrrian starship. He has fought valiantly to ensure the survival of the human race, but also so that he can be with Abigail once again. The movie flashes back to before the humans are demanded to represent their race with an ambassador, and the audience is able to gain a better understanding of Godric, Abigail, and the series of events that led up to the Myrrian starship. Godric has Hector-like qualities: he loves his wife, he led the Human army against the Kleptics during their invasion of Earth, and he is a talented warrior. His incontestable love for Abigail is what drives him, and he cares deeply for the continuation of the human race. His aristeia is prevalent throughout the tale – he is the greatest warrior of the Human race, and he must fight and prove he is the best to the rest of the Galaxy in order to ensure the survival of the Humans. The manipulation of time takes a dramatic turn when we realize, after Earth is summoned by the Myrrians to be represented in their battle to the death, that in fact what we are witnessing is a screenplay that a young writer is penning on his computer. His name is Kevin, and he is a young screenwriter in modern day Los Angeles. He sits at his desk in his apartment, and looks longingly at a picture of the same beautiful girl who plays Abigail. Kevin, already an accomplished screenwriter, is writing a screenplay about the importance of love and perseverance, and his script entitled “Ambassador” is going to be his masterpiece. He is done with his script, but extensive editing is necessary to make it perfect. What occurs over many years in his script takes place in a matter of hours on a sunny afternoon in his LA studio.
The characters are as real as Kevin is – they just experience time differently. Kevin is the divine machinery who is in control of the series of events that occur in his space epic, but the movie is about their story, not Kevin’s. He is simply an overseer and orchestrator of the story that unfolds. Throughout the story, Godric proves to his wife that he loves her, as Kevin loves his wife and wants to model that in his script. Every time before a battle, Godric presents his wife with a gift. Each gift is different, ranging from jewelry to chocolates to exotic bouquets of flowers. Godric believes that if he gifts his wife something before a battle, that his acts of love will help him to win so that he can continue to live on loving his wife. After persevering through all of the battles the Myrrians throw his way, Godric proves to the alien spectators that he fights for love and he cares about his people. Godric is a worthy opponent to the Myrrians, and as he has proven he is best, the Myrrians present him with a choice. He will no doubt perish against the Myrrians, but they will spare his wife and the human race. Should he decline, he shall be spared but all other humans shall perish before his eyes. His love holds true for his wife and his race, and he sacrifices himself so that the rest of the humans can continue their existence. Godric dies a glorified death, but a death of importance. A statue is erected on Earth, and Godric is forever remembered as the Ambassador and Savior of the Human Race, for he put his love before himself and acted selflessly to prevent the deaths of billions.
