In the near future, the United States Navy develops an aviation program to deal with international terrorists and other enemies of the state quickly and quietly, and project controller Captain George Cummings Sam Shepard is authorized to develop new technology to achieve these objectives. The projects first brainchild are FA37 Talon singleseat fighters with impressive payload, speed, and stealth capabilities. Over 400 pilots apply to participate, but only three are chosen smart hotshot Lieutenant Ben Gannon Josh Lucas, tomboyish Lieutenant Kara Wade Jessica Biel, and streetwise, philosophical Lieutenant Henry Purcell Jamie Foxx. Their first test mission scores 100100, inflicting maximum casualties with minimum collateral damage.Cummings hires Dr. Keith Orbit Richard Roxburgh to develop an artificial intelligence AI, the EDI, which will fly an unmanned combat air vehicle.
