Synopsis / Plot
The US aircraft carrier Nimitz under Captain Matthew Yelland departs from Pearl Harbor on manoeuvres. But then the Nimitz is caught in a mysterious storm that appears out of nowhere and then equally mysteriously disappears again. Afterwards the crew find that all naval communications have vanished – all they are able to pick up is old-time radio broadcasts and low-band transmissions in Wartime Naval code. A reconnaissance flight over Pearl Harbor shows ships that were destroyed in the Japanese bombing still in existence and they realize that the storm has transported them back in time to December 5th, 1941, on the eve of the Japanese attack. The question that now arises is should they intervene and use the Nimitz’s superior firepower to obliterate the Japanese fleet and alter the course of history?
