"Battle for Terra" is a battle for the soul

Opening this May Day is "Battle for Terra," an interesting film that could be lost because of the multimillion dollar promotional budget of "Star Trek." "Battle for Terra" comes closer to Gene Roddenberry's original version of "Star Trek;" an ethical debate disquised as Saturday Matinee Science Fiction.

The creatures of Terra are a peaceful loving bunch, content to live within their own means and relying upon their own ingenuity. As the Terrans witness astronomical changes with their sun, the elders proclaim that it is a message from their superior being. Instead missiles reign down upon this peaceful community and the battle has begun.
