Synopsis: That day is seared into the memory of every human being on the planet: the day the world changed. First came the attack on the Philippines. Within days they spread, as though appearing out of nowhere, striking out at more islands, forging a foothold in the South Pacific. Then came the first attack on U.S. soil - Los Angeles - and the reality became clear: our world was at war once again, but this time with an enemy from beyond our galaxy. Now, months later, the fate of the world hangs in the balance as a mission to strike at a key enemy installation deep in enemy territory goes terribly wrong, and the Marines of the 15th Expeditionary Unit are scattered across the island of New Britain, leaderless, and facing impossible odds. Pacific Theater is the story of those Marines: fresh recruits who journey from their homes across the Pacific to the front lines. It is the story of John Blake, a charming Californian surfer who must find the strength to become a leader, Tracey Gleeson, a physics

[Woman] Chicken's almost done.


I'll start preparing

the salad if you like?

Sure, that'd be

great Margaret.

I'll get you a few

things for it.

Mom, I'm hungry.

We'll eat soon,

Jennifer, okay,

as soon as your

father gets here.

Thank you.

Do you think we've

got enough beer?

He won't want beer

when he gets home.

He's gonna need whiskey.

Now, David, don't go

getting Christopher drunk now.

Why not? He's on shore leave,

he can do whatever he wants.

I hope he'll wanna spend

time with his family.

What about John?

Is he planning on

showing up tonight?

John? Planning something?

There's a new one.

Well, maybe you

should give him a call.

He'll wanna be here.

I've tried three

times already.

He never answers.

I'll try again.


(mid-tempo pop music)



Hey bro, good game.

Thanks dude.

Although, I think

you take this shit

a little too seriously, man.

It's just street football.

That's because we're

the best, brah.

You guys are delusional.

Yeah, street football

is like our thing.

Unlike people running

you down like that.

He's just jealous,

dude, forget about it.

So, I take it you

guys play a lot?

Oh yeah, all the time.

We're like backyard

champions of LA.


Yeah, from Glendale all

the way down to Long Beach.

Past Long Beach,

bro, way past.

Yeah, but we're unstoppable.

John here, he's our

secret weapon.

Who's on the barbecue?

It smells awesome.


He's drunk.

Well, it's good

to have skills.

What, drinking?

He's really good at that.

No, I mean...

I think it's his last drawing.


I have skills too, by the way.

Really? You mean besides

running with a ball?



I'm sorry.

That's fair, kind of.

What other skills do you have?

I fix things.

Really? Like what?

Anything, stuff

around the house,

plumbing, motorbikes.

I just spent a month

up at Big Sur

helping a guy build

a pizza oven.

It took a month to

build a pizza oven?

Man, this thing was huge.

You could fit like

five pizzas at once.

Plus, I had a lot

of cervezas, okay.

I'm a busy man.

Actually, you know what?

I think I might need

something fixed.


Yeah, my truck,

there is this noise.

Your truck has a noise?


I think I should

come around some time

and take a look at your truck.

What are you doin' tomorrow?



Is this your phone, dude?


It's been ringing

all afternoon.


Hey! Where are you going?

I have to go.

I'll call you tomorrow.

He's always doing that.

But I didn't give

him my number.

Oh, I'll give you his number.


'Cause I really need

my truck fixed.

Despite what you've

seen in the movies,

traveling through

space is not the same

as driving down the I-95,

where the speed limit's

more of a suggestion

than an actual limit.

The speed of light is it.

Nothing moves faster.

Even at that speed it

would take decades

to reach our closest neighbors.

For now, we're stuck

here on this rock, Earth.



Well, let's not

forget that this boring

little planet is home.

It looks pretty small from here,

but it holds everything

in your life.

Your family, your friends,

everything you've ever known,

everything you wanna be.

It's all we've got, so take

care of it, protect it.
