In 1977, NASA launched its Voyager probes—famously carrying gold-plated records filled with earthly information, just in case they encountered any intelligent life among the stars. Raphael Rogers’ short film Scavenger asks: What if the records actually fell into some curious alien hands?

“What if the records actually fell into some curious alien hands?”

That was the plot of Starman. An alien played the record, came to earth and inhabited Jeff Bridges’ body. The feds are after him but Karen Allen and Charles Martin Smith help him get back to his people. Before he leaves he learns about love and sex and stuff. It was also a tv show for one season in the ‘80s starring Robert “Airplane!” Hayes.

Starman, Columbia Pictures, 1984
