Among those humans who enlist is family man Dan Forester (Chris Pratt), who is signing up, even though he could have used deferments for teachers and veterans. Why? Because he thinks his wife would be drafted in his place were he to opt out. His goals are also tied to his family, and making sure there's a world for his young daughter Muri to grow up in.

Forester is quickly armed with a device for time-travel, which looks like a very big arm-wrap. He will also need to confront his past, though, as his estranged father (J.K. Simmons) is a part of the fight against the aliens. in a desperate quest to rewrite the fate of the planet.

The human forces also include a brilliant scientist played by Yvonne Strahovski, whose name has not been revealed yet. Is she one of Forester's relatives? We bet the spoilers are out there.
