In the year 2077, Jack is one of the last drone repairmen stationed on Earth, which was nearly destroyed in 2017 during a war against the alien Scavs. The Scavs destroyed the moon, resulting in massive earthquakes and tsunamis, before being defeated by nuclear weapons, which left most of Earth uninhabitable.
JACK : We won the war, but Earth was ruined.
Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources, Jack’s mission is nearly complete, following which he will join the other surviving humans on the “Tet”, a massive orbiting space station, and to Saturn’s moon Titan.
BEECH : The Tet. What a brilliant machine. Feeding off one planet after another for energy.
However, Jack’s existence is brought crashing down when he rescues a stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.
BEECH : That is one pissed-off weapon.
JACK : No, it’s just a machine. I’m the weapon.
A term used over the radio to confirm hearing what someone just said; okay; all right.
SALLY : Our job is to run those rigs. Your directive is to protect them. We cannot afford to lose another. Do you copy?
VICTORIA : Copy.
VICTORIA : Jack, we should keep in contact. Just let me know where you are. Do you copy? Jack, do you copy?

60 years ago, Earth was attacked. We won the war, but they deｓtroyed half the planet.
Everyone’s been evacuated. Nothing human remains.
We’re here for drone repair. We’re the mop-up crew.
This is Jack Harper. I’m good to go.
Two more weeks, Jack, and we can finally leave and join the others. Don’t take any chances.
I’ve been watching you, Jack.
What are you looking for in those books?
Do they bring back old memories?
We have an unidentified impact.
Don’t ask too many questions.
They are human.
Mission is ordering you to return to Tower.
How do you know my name?
They’re firing on survivors.
What have you done?
I can’t protect you.
They won’t stop until they find me.
If you’re looking for the truth… that’s where you’ll find it.
You need to know what happened.
What aren’t you telling me? Who are you?
Jack, Mission is ordering you to stand down.
I’m not gonna do that.
This is the only way.
