What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Sheri Linden quote iconStory runs out of gas on road to discovery.

Gabi Zietsman quote iconPlease Stand By is not a film you’d go out of your way to watch, as it missed the mark too much for art film fame and doesn’t have enough mainstream appeal beyond a Star Trek fanbase and perhaps those invested in autism awareness for various reasons. The scope of the film is much more suited to a streaming website than cinematic release, where it may have found a more willing audience who’d also learn more about the life of a person who must navigate their emotions and life like the Enterprise going through space.
