Battlefield Earth

Synopsis: In the year 3000, humanity is no match for the Psychlos, a greedy, manipulative race on a quest for ultimate profit. Led by the seductive and powerful Terl, the Psychlos are stripping Earth of its resources, using the broken remnants of humanity as slaves. What is left of the human race has reverted to a primitive state, believing the invaders to be demons and technology to be evil. After humanity has all but given up any hope of freeing themselves from alien oppression, a young man named Tyler decides to leave his desolate home high in the Rocky Mountains to discover the truth, whereupon he is captured and enslaved. It is then that he decides to fight back, leading his fellow man in one final struggle for freedom.

Who's responsible for allowing|him to run around?

He shot the wrangler.

I'm a little pressed for time.|Save the going-away jokes for later.

No joke, sir. I swear.

The man-animal|got ahold of this gun.


Show me.


Reach for the gun.

But, sir, I might get shot.

Sure, you might. And I might|suddenly grow a third arm!

But it shot the wrangler.

Any report filed today|still has my name on it. . .

. . .and you are out of your skull-bone|if you think I'm going to write. . .

. . . "shot by a man-animal" as the|cause of death unless I see it!

If I obey your command,|I may get killed.

If you don't, it's a certainty|you will be killed.

Reach for the gun.

Well, I'll be damned.

Teleportation sequence activated.

It is a pleasure to see you,|Your Excellency.

I would be honored to expedite|your clearance through security.

Please, call me Zete.|Does all of Earth look like this?

I'm afraid so, sir.

Pathetic. All the green|and the blue sky.

They told me this planet was ugly,|but this is one of the ugliest. . .

-. . .in the entire universe.|-I couldn't agree more.

I hate these puny, undersized planets.|The gravity is so different.

One does get used to it.

And the human-animals,|grossly undersized.

They don't make good eating,|Your Excellency.

-My executive assistant, Ker.|-Thank you.

He has been fully trained|to replace me as chief of security.

-As soon as my transfer goes through.|-Well, Ker. . .

. . .once we finish mining out|this miserable little planet. . .

. . .Iet's do the universe a favor.

Let's exterminate the lot of them.

-Oh, you're too much.|-So they tell me.

Please, come this way.

Spy satellites recorded those.

-What is this species?|-According to the Clinko historians. . .
