A good start
I love the background of the piece, as my eye is drawn straight to the planet and the amazing look that you have for the planet and its rings. The "dust cloud" look of the background is nice, lending a look of the Aurora Borealis to the scene.
Moving on to the character, he looks good - humanoid, with a square jaw, but the devil is in the detail and melding his nose into his cheeks is a nice way to make him look inhuman, aside from just the skin. The left forearm does looka little on the large side though.
You've designed the cockpit well, giving space for two people to sit up front, where the point of view comes from. A question I would ask is where the steering equipment attaches to the main console - there doesn't appear to be anything connecting the two.
Finally, with the detail attached to the background and the character, you've let it down a little, by not tidying up the flow of the curves on the console and the straight edges of the display. If you try zooming in a little and attending to the finer details, you can deal with the issues at a more base level and when you zoom back out, it will look a lot better.
Still, this is a great concept and I'd love to see you take this further, be it to a comic, story or even a flash cartoon. Best of luck!
