Karel Čapek's seminal 1919 play R.U.R. coined the term "robot" and was set 50 years in the future, making it 1969. Chase Masterson of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine stars in R.U.R.: Genesis, set in a flirty 1960s retrofuture where artificials conspire against humans.

Writer and director James Kerwin has plans for a feature-length R.U.R. movie with this swinging setting. He's hoping the fun short can garner enough interest to fund a longer movie.
