A year after Liberation Day, courtesy of the red-dust bacteria, the humanoid, lizard-like aliens develop a resistance to the micro-organism and try to regain control of the Earth--only now some humans are knowingly working with them.
Aliens pretending to be friendly come to Earth and are received openly. The aliens have disguised themselves to look just like humans. When it is discovered that the aliens' planet is dying and that they have come to rape the Earth of its natural resources, the war for Earth begins. An important key to the humans' success is distinguishing their own from who the aliens are. Written by

The Secretary General referred to me as the "Supreme Commander", actually I'm just sort of an Admiral, responsible for this small fleet around your planet.

This *small* fleet? Yeah right...

First saw 20 years ago and its fascination to me then has not dimmed.
Skillfully told tale of alien contact - "we come in peace" but this soon changed as a deep and premeditated plot by the aliens to enslave/rape the Earth emerged. Obvious overtones common to any invader/oppressive regime in particular The Holocaust.
Strong storyline and characters that one really felt involved with/cared for.
Special effects (especially the at-times wobbly V shuttle craft) not state-of-the-art by today's standards but competently done and more than compensated for by the strength of the storyline.
Would recommend to people who don't particularly like sci-fi, because of the personal side of the story.
10 out of 10.
