When two aliens fighting against each other in their spacecrafts crash on Earth at Area 51, a military group goes to the location but they are killed. The former military Jake Townsend seeks news from his brother in the base where his brother serves, and stumbles with the alien Jude. He is wounded and explains that he needs to find a weapon before the other alien, Kronnan, activates it to destroy Earth. They team-up with Jake's former girlfriend Monica Gray to search the weapon while they are hunted down by Kronnan and a paramilitary team. But when Jake meets Kronnan, he tells that Jude is the one who intends to activate the destructive weapon. Who is telling the truth?

The red convertible the heroes "borrow" is a 1967 Rambler Rebel SST, a fairly rare vehicle (only 1,686 were made that year). This fact and the film's fairly low budget probably explain why it survived to the end of the film, as this vehicle likely belonged to a private collector. See more
At one point Jake Townsend states that they are in Missouri. The setting is consistent with this statement; however, the title of the movie claims a connection with Area 51 (in Nevada). See more
How can I trust you?
I am a centurion. I have pledged my life to protect this planet and the Omega seed. The other, he is a rogue, a terrorist. The rod he carries is the switch that will detonate the seed and destroy us all.
What about those men and women you killed?
It was they who attacked me. Do you not have order on this planet? Aren't the rules not the same?
