Today really marks the first stage of an

unprecedented technological advancement.

We have begun to identify a so-called

goldilocks planet,

these planets that share a similar relationship

with their sun as we have with ours

If a planet's too far away from it's sun, it's too cold.

If it's too close to it's sun, it's too hot.

But for an earthlike planet, the distance is just right.

Potentially perfect

for sustaining life.

We have finally managed to identify one planet

that is the right distance

from it's star to hold water.

And is the right mass to sustain an atmosphere.

Every 24 hours our station in hawaii will

transmit a signal

to LANSAT 7, our deep orbiting satellite,

which will amplify & relay the signal to our targeted

planet which is rather grandly entitled

Planet G.

if there is intelligent life out there,

and they come here,

it's gonna be like Columbus & the Indians.

Only we're the indians.

Ladies and gentlemen,

please prepare to bare witness to the making of history.

Start transmission.

Well it seems as though NASA is setting

up shop right here in our own backyard.

Today the "Beacon Interntional Project" was launched.

Satellite dishes here on Oahu sending

out very powerful signals into deep space,

with an attempt to communicate with anyone...

Another round birthday boy!

A toast,

Happy birthday little brother!

Whishing you successs & growth,

happiness may this be a great year ...

- A great year ...

- It's gonna be a great year ...

- I love you.

- I love you too.

- So in the great Hopper family tradition

this year i'm quoting from coach John Wooden.

"Adversity is the state in which man

most easily becomes aquainted with himself, "

"be especially free of admirers then." Cheers!

- I'm not cheersing to that.

- It's a very good quote for you.

I may be free of admirers right now

but there's still time.

Would you shut up.

Light your cupcake & raise your glass.

- Did you get me that?

- Yes I got you that.

- Thank you. That's very sweet

- You're welcome!

I got this guy, Tony. He said he could get

you a construction job. All you need to do is call him.

- Can I get a beer and a chicken Burrito, please.

- Sorry. The kitchen's closed.

- You gotta call him.

- Give Tony my best...

But I don't need you or Tony's help for that matter.

- well you can call him or join me in the navy

- No.

alright! alright!

Happy birthday!

Blow out the candle and make a wish.

Do not waste a wish on a girl.

Wish for a job, an apartment,

a new alternating belt so i don't

have to drive you everywhere, a job or a...

You said you job twice.

It's my birthday. My wish.

- Alright?

- Please don't waste it.

- You just wasted a wish.

- I'm going in.

- You're not going in.

- How do i look?

Wait let me just fix...

Awesome. Alright princess go get em.

- What seems to be the problem?

- I want a chicken burrito.

- Johnny, chicken burrito her.

- It ain't happening.

- Chicken burrito her.

- The kitchen's closed Hopper.

- What's your name?

- I'm hungry.

That's not your name.

If you give me 5 minutes, I will get you your chicken burrito.

Five minutes, starting now.

Chicken burrito time, I'm out.

Chicken burrito, roger that.

Wait! Wait! Hi!

Let's just one twist of the key & we'll be good...

how are you man. How you doing?

- The burritos are right there.

- We're closed.

- We're closed! Too late bro

- It' right there! Please!

- It's late to eat a burrito!

- Too many complex carbs!

- $3.99.

Chicken Burrito!

I brought the Burrito!

I found it!

he's getting back up

Stay down!

I've had it! Look at yourself!

How is it that you screw everything up!

Oh by the way, that girl you were trying to

impress last night, do you know who her father is?

Admiral Shane!

He runs the whole damn fleet.

So now you're messing with job. My life!

- You know that girl? The burrito girl?

- Oh I've always stayed out of your business haven't I?,

Coz i was hoping that maybe one day

you would learn from your mistakes,

- you would grow up, you would mature a bit!

- Is my back alright?

- Argh oh my god my back!

- You're 26 and what have you got?

You've got what? 65 dollars to your name!

I got tazed!

A car that doesn't start, you're living on my couch!

- Those things work?

- Man look at yourself.

- Oh My God.

- As of now,

as of right this second,

there's a new dynamic at play.

And this dynamic is the final

from here on out until I state otherwise.

there'll be no more debate,

no more discussion, no more compromise.

It's me speaking you listening,

me saying you doing.

Do you understand that?

It's time for a new course of action.

A new direction. A game change.

You're joining me in the navy.

Live! Local!

This is Hawaii news now.

Thousands of sailors on dozens of

ships are coming to hawaii for RIMPAC.

RIMPAC is the world's largest

multinational maritime exercise

RIMPAC is a militarty ballet of 14 navies.

20,000 navy personnel...

Coorporation & callibration amongst the countries,

is the goal.

Relationship building is the key.

Not all the action is taking place out on

the water there will also be sporting events here on land.

Forget world cup this is the RIMPAC cup final!

It's another beautiful day here in Hawaii as ususal!

...brewing on the field as the scrapy

USA team butting heads with Japan.

Score is two nil Japan.

The US has been trailing all day. Captain Alex Hopper
