This science fiction movie is about two enemy fighter pilots who crash land on a barren planet and are forced to work together to survive. Slowly learning one another's trust they become friends and learn more about each other's cultures and language. They eventually realise that they are more alike than they think. As the environment becomes harsher the harder it is to survive, then the Drack pilot (alien) becomes pregnant and dies giving birth, leaving Davidge (Quaid) alone to raise the child. Will Davidge forms a bond with the child and vows to fufil his promise to its parent and get the child home.

The action starts off again when human scavengers who use Dracks as slaves capture the child and leave Will for dead. Davidge is rescued eventually by friendly humans who filed him as presumed dead in action. He recovers after being under suspicion for straying to the enemy side, when he speaks their language in a state of delusion from his injuries.
Disobeying orders he goes back to the planet to rescue the child. He rescues the child and with help from his friends takes the freed slaves back to their home planet. Here he fufils his vow and initiates the child into the Drackulian society by reciting in their language.
A good action film and quite humourous in parts, especially when the two pilots first meet each other and learn each other's language. Also some endearing moments between Davidge and the alien child he has raised as if it was his own.
