Perhaps it's fate

that today is the 4th of July.

You will once again

be fighting for our freedom.

Not from tyranny,

oppression or persecution.

But from annihilation.

We're fighting for

our right to live.

We're fighting for

our right to live.



but as the day when

the world declared in one voice.

"We will not go

quietly into the night!"

"We will not vanish

without a fight!"

"We're going to live on!

We're going to survive."

Today, we celebrate our Independence...



The countless lives that

we lost in the war of '96

did not perish in vain.

They inspired us to rise from the

ashes as one people of one world.

For 20 years the world has

seen no arm conflict.

Nations have put their

petty differences aside.

United, we rebuild our families,

our cities and our lives.

The fusion of human and alien technology

not only enable us to defy gravity

and travel with unimaginable speed.

It also made our planet

finally safe again.

- Great speech, Patty.

- Thank you, Madam President.

One moment.

We're ready for you, sir.

Captain Hiller.

- Welcome to the White House.

- It's great to be back.

I cannot tell you how proud we are

to have you flying our flag out there.

- It's an honor, Madam President.

- Your father was a great man.

He'd be so proud.

I think you know the

Secretary of Defense.

- Sir.

- Nice to see you again, son.

And that one,

I don't have to introduce you to.

You're moving up in the world.

Say's America's knight

in shining armor.

Now you're the one

bagging the White House.

As an employee, I don't quite get

the same benefits as when I lived here.

- Captain.

- Yeah.

- We're ready for you.

- Thank you.


Be nice to Jake when

you see him up there.

Moon Tug-10, confirm position.

7 miles and closing.

The slowest trip of my life.

Hey, cheer up.

There're worse things you could be doing

than towing a half trillion dollar of weapon.


Well, I need a little more stimulation.

Hey, you know.

I'd never follow you up here.

Yeah, you did.

You get lonely without me.

I was the youngest valedictorian

in the history of the academy.

I could have been

stationed anywhere.

Like San Diego, you know?

Beaches, surfing.

- You never surf a day in you life.

- But I'm a fast learner.

And I got great balance.

Like a cat.

Cats hate water, Charlie.

4% to first thrust.


Tug-10 reversing thrust, 4%.

The Tugs and the weapon

are on final approach.

They are in position, sir.

Docking in

3. 2. 1.

Initiate uncoupling sequence.

All Tugs disengage.

Trust there are only 36 women

on this moon base.

I'm sure one of them will

eventually come around, pal.

You know, it's not like

they all rejected me.

I happen to have standards.

- Whoa. What did you do?

- Nothing.

That didn't sound

like nothing!

Tug-10 collided

with the weapon.

The clamps are stuck.

They are not responding, sir.

All Tugs, take evasive action.

Pull back!

Pull back!

- Charlie, it's going to crash the base.

- I said, PULL BACK!

Uh, that's a negative, sir.

- This isn't a fire, Jake.

- Don't remind me!

Lieutenant Miller,

what are you idiots doing?

I don't know, sir.

We're going to die!

This is how I die!

Sir, he's slowing the fall.

Go to your docking place.

I'm kicking into fusion drive!

Are you crazy?

We'll burn up.

Yeah, that's very possible!

Come on!




It's actually working!

I honestly didn't think

that was going to work.

Uh, shit.

Jiang's coming in hot.

And he's got that look.

This is our base.

He knows we don't
