Earth. Take a good look. It might be your last.

On July 2, a giant alien mothership enters orbit around Earth and deploys several dozen saucer-shaped 'destroyer' spacecraft that quickly lay waste to major cities around the planet. On July 3, the United States conducts a coordinated counterattack that fails. On July 4, a plan is devised to gain access to the interior of the alien mothership in space, in order to plant a nuclear missile.

Eine gewaltige außerirdische Armee bedroht die Existenz der Erde. Die Invasion beginnt mit dem Auftauchen gigantischer Raumschiffe, die sich über den wichtigsten Zentren der Welt positionieren. Die bedrohliche Faszination schlägt schnell in unvorstellbare Panik um, als die Raumschiffe angreifen und bedingungslos zerstören. Nun liegt das Schicksal der Menschheit in den Händen der wenigen Überlebenden, die sich für den alles entscheidenden Kampf gegen die Invasoren bereit machen…

Une immense soucoupe volante envahit le ciel terrestre, libérant un nombre infini de plus petites soucoupes qui prennent position au-dessus des plus grandes villes du monde. Un informaticien new-yorkais décrypte les signaux émanant des étranges voyageurs. Ils ne sont pas du tout amicaux et ces extraterrestres se préparent à attaquer la Terre.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Mancano pochi giorni al Giorno dell'Indipendenza, quando il cielo su Washington è oscurato da una gigantesca astronave extraterrestre. Il governo degli Stati Uniti e l'opinione pubblica si interrogano sulle intenzioni dei visitatori dividendosi tra un fronte ostile ed un'ala pacifista. Contemporaneamente, nell'etere viene captato un misterioso segnale: è, come scopre David Levison, un conto alla rovescia che annuncia un'aggressione senza precedenti contro la Terra.
