i am a life time Catholic, and have never read the entire Bible. I have tried....and could not get through it. With this, I did, and the addition of the music and other theatrical enhancement, made it much better.

Colonel Joe Bishop made a promise, and he's going to keep it: taking the captured alien starship Flying Dutchman back out. He doesn't agree when the UN decides to send almost 70 elite Special Operations troops, hotshot pilots, and scientists with him; the mission is a fool's errand he doesn't expect to ever return from. At least this time, the Earth is safe, right? Not so much.
