"Battlefield Earth" is a swashbuckling science fiction saga of adventure, daring and courage, when man is an endangered species and the future survival of what's left of the human race is at stake.
In the year 3000 AD, man has been savagely ruled for a thousand years by a space-plundering race of nine-foot high, gas-breathing conquerors from the planet Psychlo.
One of the Psychlos, the villainous Terl, enslaves a man-creature and forces him to mine Earth gold. Terl s plan: to teleport the gold to Psychlo, where he can then return wealthy beyond the dreams of avarice.
The slave emerges in the form of Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, a member of the dwindling community of only 35,000 human survivors. However, Jonnie has plans other than to make Terl wealthy namely, to free mankind from alien tyranny and cause the ultimate destruction of the Psychlo invaders.
