You will notice that Instant is co-executive produced by Rod Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene, but Alex Albrecht’s hostage drama doesn’t take place in outer space. It unfolds in a dive bar, where a frantic, heavily-armed man forces the assembled patrons to sit tight for hours while he hides from the cops outside. Instant runs a little long, and it gets more than a little melodramatic at the end—but all that talking in its middle section builds to the sci-fi reveal you’ve been waiting for.
