The time is now. The place is aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz, America’s mightiest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on maneuvers in the Pacific Ocean. Suddenly, a freak electrical storm engulfs the ship and triggers the impossible: The Nimitz is hurtled back in time to December 6, 1941, mere hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As the enemy fleet speeds towards Hawaii, the warship’s Captain (Kirk Douglas, Ace in the Hole), a Defense Department expert (Martin Sheen, Badlands), a maverick Air Wing Commander (James Farentino, Me, Natalie) and a desperate Senator in the Roosevelt administration (Charles Durning, Breakheart Pass) must choose between the unthinkable. Do they allow the Japanese to complete their murderous invasion, or launch a massive counterstrike that will forever change the course of history?

Katharine Ross and Ron O’Neal co-star in the 1980 sci-fi action hit The Final Countdown filmed on location aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz with the full participation of the U.S. Navy and the ship’s crew.
