On the planet Cybertron, the Autobots and Decepticons are killing each other. The Decepticons are gaining ground and the war is about to come to a conclusion.
"We were once a peaceful race of intelligent, mechanical beings. But then came the war, between the Autobots who fought for freedom and the Decepticons who dreamt of tyranny. Overmatched and outnumbered, our defeat was all but certain."
As the Decepticons are advancing, an Autobot ship is fleeing the planet but comes under fire from Decepticon ships. The enemy ships are shooting at the Autobot ship as it dodges the collumns and the bulllets.
"But in the war's final days, one Autobot ship escaped the battle. It was carrying a secret cargo which would have changed our planet's fate."
The Autobot ship decides to fight back. The cockpit moves under the ship and it turns into a tail gunner. All of the turrets are aiming at the Decepticon ships. Inside the ship, the Autobots are desperately trying to fight off the ships. A few Decepticon ships are shot down but they are still closing. The Autobot ship manages to emerge from the surface and prepares to leave Cybertron. From behind, a Decepticon ship locks on target and fires a missile. It is soon sends tiny missiles and they zero in.
"A desperate mission. Our final hope."
The missiles hit the ship and it floats dead in space.
"A hope... that vanished."
VLA Radio Observatory - New Mexico, 1961
A group of Analysts are studying.
"One up there. One over there. And one more down there."
In the station a person is on duty when he hears strange noises from his headphones.
"What you got?"
In space by the moon, the Autobot ship that was hit crashes into the surface of the moon at full speed.
"Impact detected. We have impact confirmed..."
NASA Director - Langley, Virginia
"Contact at... twenty-two-fifty GMT."
"What? Get me SecDef on the phone right away." The NASA Director said.
Pentagon - National Security Command
A person receives the telegraph. He and his team head to the White House to give the news to President John F. Kennedy.
"Mr. McNamara, the President is expecting you."
"Get Bobby in here." President Kennedy said.
Secretary of Defense, Robert McNamara approaches the President and salutes to him.
"Mr. President. Designation top secret. We believe a UFO has crashed into the Moon. We think the Russians are onto it as well." He informed.
"Well, then you tell NASA to move heaven and earth. We need to get to the moon." President Kennedy ordered.
"We're going to attempt a manned mission. NASA said it would take five years." He opposed.
"You get there before the Russians." Kennedy demanded.
The mission was ago to send explorer into the moon to beat the Soviets in the Space Race.
"I believe that this nation should commit itself... to achieving the goal... before this decade is out... of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth.
Eight years later, July 16, 1969
8 years later in Cape Canaveral, FL, two famous Astronauts, Neil Asrmtrong and Buzz Adrian will be the first to step on the moon.
"Ten, nine- Ignition sequence start. Five, four, three, two, one."
Apollo 11 fires its engines and lifts off into the air. From the launch site, people are cheering as the rocket leaves Earth.
"All engines running. Liftoff. We have a liftoff. Thirty-two minutes past the hour. Liftoff on Apollo 11..."
"Neil Armstrong reporting Apollo 11 on proper heading." Neil said.
"Apollo 11 is on the way, riding that pillar of flame from the Saturn Five out there two hundred and fifty miles away where the moon is waiting for man's first arrival." Walter said.
"Houston, you're a go for landing. Over."
The Saturn Five begins descending into the surface.
"Forty feet, down two and a half." Neil said, "Picking up some dust. Thirty feet, two and a half down. Faint shadow."
"Capcom, flight. Four forward. Drifting to the right a little. Down a half. Contact light. Okay, engine stop." Neil's partner Buzz Aldrian informed.
The Saturn Five then touches down on the surface of the moon.
"Houston, uh, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." Neil said.
The people in Houston cheered knowing that the astronauts have landed on the moon.
"We copy you down, Eagle. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue. We're breathing again."
"Perhaps four hundred million persons are watching this broadcast today of the greatest event in our time and one of the great events of all recorded history." Mr. Conkit said.
Niel Armstrong then climbs down the ladder and leap into the ground. For the first time in history, America has place a man on the moon beating the Soviets in the Space Race.
"I'm at the foot of the ladder. Okay, I'm gonna step off the LEM now. That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Neil said.
"Are we good?" A Black Ops officer asked.
"Yes, sir." A technician said.
"Unofficial time on the first step, one-oh-nine, to- [static]" Neil informed before he was cut off.
"Apollo 11? This is Houston, over." Control said.
"Eagle, we're getting a signal interference. Do you copy?"
"We now have had confirmation of loss of signal from the Apollo Eleven. The Apollo Eleven is, at the moment, on the far side of the moon."
"Neil, you are dark on the rock. Mission is a go. We have 21 minutes."
"[obscured by static] three minutes, forty-five seconds and counting."
Neil and Buzz make their way to the crash site of the alien ship. They use flashlights and Neil takes off his visor of his helmet. They clear some of the sand and it reveals a robotic face.
"My God... It's some sort of giant metal face." He said in awed.
Neil and Buzz move deeper into the ship. They look and see wreckage all around and bodies of alien robots.
"Control, we are inside the ship. Extensive damage. Way too big to check the entire ship. Everything's dead in here, Houston. No signs of life anywhere. These things are massive."
"We copy. You've got seven minutes on your oxygen. We are not alone after all, are we?"
"No, sir. We're not alone."
Back on Earth, the President speaks to Neil and Buzz on the phone.
'"Go ahead, Mr. President." An announcer said.
"Hello, Neil and Buzz." The Newly elected President Richard Nixon said, "I'm talking to you by telephone from the Oval Room at the White House. And this certainly has to be the most historic telephone call ever made. I just can't tell you how proud we all are of you. For every American, this has to be the proudest day of our lives. Because of what you have done-"
The Apollo 13 splashes down in the Atlantic.
"We have splashdown."
Neil and Buzz are safely lift off by chopper. They have completed the mission on the moon.
"-the heavens have become a part of man's world. For one priceless moment in the whole history of man, all the people on this Earth are truly one. One in their pride in what you have done. It inspires us to redouble our efforts to bring peace, and tranquility, to Earth."
