Conquest of the Earth (1984)

Film details

Synopsis

Science fiction. Far out in space the ship Battlestar Galactica has at last found her long-sought haven, Earth. Unfortunately, close behind them are their mortal enemies, the Cyclons, who are determined to wipe every earthling in the galaxy. The Cyclons must not be allowed to destroy Earth so it means that, although the Battlestar Galactica has arrived at her journey's end, to land would mean total destruction for the Earth. This must be prevented at all costs and Commander Adama assembles his trusted liutenants. He groups them in pairs and they are told to beam down to Earth to try and bring Earth's technology to a sufficently high level of intelligence in order for the Galacticans to merge within Earth's society. They must only reveal their true identity to those they can trust. Their work must be carried out as secretively as possible. Commander Adama's most loyal liutenants, Troy and Dillon travel down to the United States, where they have the task to trace down Dr. Mortinson, an expert on atomic energy, who will help them to carry out their dangerous mission.
