Johnny Ponder and Stacy Ledbetter are found murdered in Shepherd Park. The event has rattled the tight-knit community. On the same night of their murders, blueish-green flashes light up the night sky all around Syracuse. Strange things are reported in the area. Cars shut off unexpectedly while traveling down the road. Radio signals were lost.
As things began to level out and normality is restored, an alien race known as the Qspolians make their presence known. Their interplanetary cruiser crash-landed on Earth, effectively stranding them. Sergeant O’Reilly is hand-picked by the president to complete one task: He is to act as ambassador for the human race and do whatever it takes to keep peace.
Instead of keeping peace, O’Reilly plunges Earth into World War Three.
