Story of the Next Alien Attack

Alien attack

After the 1996 Independence Day battle, the scientists on earth have set up an Earth Space Defense (ESD) for the prior warning of any alien attack on the earth. Likewise, the elite forces and the military have also been created to fight with aliens. In the war of 1996, before destruction, aliens managed to send out distress signals out in the deep space and some aliens went into hiding around the world. Now, the alien culture in deep space receives the signal and sends a more powerful space ship than the previous one (in 1996), to attack on the earth once again.

The earth unitedly fights and sustains.
