A pilot in full suit walking towards a ship, you can see on lookers from a distance that could be scientists or superior officers. Once in his cockpit, the hangar fades and begins some sort of FTL transition where the ship appears to not move at all, but is encapsulated by some sort of bubble which then collapses on it self and causes the ship to be instantly transported to an inhabited planet.
The ship then begins to fly off. The pilot sees a series of abstract objects inside his cockpit dashboard (implying other destinations) and you realize that the first objective is the first of the destinations. The pilot reaches a place that does not seem natural forming, landing and going towards the center of this place, the pilot searches with the aid of a scanner on this arm (a helm piece) but does not find anything. You then see the FTL transition as before and the ship is once again in a different world. The new planet is different, but reaches a similar non-natural looking place as before.
This continues with several more scenes where you can detect the frustration of the pilot as the places to visit run down. Upon reaching the last place to visit, a signal is detected and the pilot races towards it. It seems the signal is getting weaker but reaches it in time. Eureka! It is found, then the pilot is transitioned back to the hangar where everything started. You realize it must have been some sort of test.
