Our best flying days

are behind both of us.

Ah, yes, but yours are farther behind.

What your problem is,

you still think you're a fighter jock.

I bet you even had one of those

Top Gun nicknames, right?


There must be a reason

why you never told me.

Come on, what was it?

Look, I'll even tell you mine first, okay?


They always said I thought my way

out of tough scrapes over Nam.

"Einstein" Grant.

Come on, that's an order. Let me hear it.


"The Penetrator".

Ah, come on, look!

Because I always went the farthest

at the target, goddamnit!

Libya, Tunysia, Lebanon, it was me, pal.

I was always first in, last out.

- "The Penetrator"! I love it, I love it.

- Screw you!


SLR is picking up something.

It's just another lamed-up satellite

for the space janitors to collect.

No, it's too big.

Christ, it's nearly a quarter mile long!

A quarter mile?

Yeah. And closing fast.

Hey, Chuck, are you tracking this?

We got it down now.

Sounds okay. Crazy elliptical orbit.

Way out of the usual satellite tracks.

That's why we never pick it up.

Well, get us a course projection, quick!

I'll pull us out of here if we--

No danger to you, Camelot.

Plotting shows a comfortable miss.

Hold on, we've got some

conflicting reports.

Here we go. I got it scanned.

Is that what I think it is?

I think it is.

What the hell have we got here, Jason?

Looks like some kind of a ship!

We got to get it in cameras.

Everything we got.

Okay, I'll tell you what. I'll grab one

and get some stills from the port.

Yeah, in a minute.

I'm gonna get us closer.

Okay, guys, listen up.

We copy Houston.

What are your words of wisdom?

Here's the story.

Object's orbit is coming apart

at the seams, decaying fast.

It'll be going down real soon.
