In 1980, the US Navy’s most powerful warship, the USS Nimitz, is caught in a storm during routine maneuvers in the Pacific. Enveloped by a strange green light, the ship passes through a vortex and when they emerge, the crew find that their communication has been cut off. Captain Matthew Yelland (Kirk Douglas – Spartacus, Lust for Life) sends out a patrol and the F-14 pilots are shocked to encounter vintage Japanese warplanes. To their surprise, they discover that they have somehow been transported back in time to 6th December 1941: the day before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. As captain of a technologically superior craft, should Captain Yelland fulfill his duty to protect the United States and foil the impending attack or let history run its course? With fantastic aerial sequences made with the cooperation of US Navy pilots, this classic tale of space, time and war features a cast full of Hollywood veterans including Martin Sheen (The West Wing) and Katherine Ross (The Graduate, The Stepford Wives). Will things ever be the same again?’s The Final Countdown!
