PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
It's the year 3000 A.D., and the Earth is lost to the alien race of Psychlos. Humanity is enslaved by these gold-thirsty tyrants, who are unaware that their 'man-animals' are about to ignite the rebellion of a lifetime.
The original plans called for a sequel to be produced, which would be based on the second half of the novel by L. Ron Hubbard. These plans were scrapped due to poor critical and public reaction.
What is this species?
Terl: Well, according to the Clinko historians, the species is called "dog."
Zete: Obviously the superior race, having the man-animal chauffeur it around.
After spending time in the Knowledge Machine, Jonnie learns the Psychlo language and many other things, specifically including mathematics. Somehow this also teaches him terms such as "Euclidean geometry" and enables him to translate that into the English of an uneducated, primitive human culture as well as to read English texts, despite the fact that the Psychlos appear to have no knowledge of English.
A scene where Johnny and the other humans try to find instructions to the bomb is added in the U.S. Video and DVD release
