In 2005, NASA discovers an extrasolar planet with conditions similar to Earth. On the chance that it contains intelligent life, NASA transmits a powerful signal from a communications array based in Hawaii, which will be boosted by a satellite in orbit. Around the same time, the talented but undisciplined slacker Alex Hopper attempts to impress a woman by getting her a chicken burrito; the result of which sees Alex break into a convenience store and be tasered by the police later. The woman is later revealed to be Samantha Shane, daughter of United States Pacific Fleet commanding officer Vice Admiral Shane, who in turn is the superior of Commander Stone Hopper, Alex's elder brother. Fed up and infuriated at Alex for lack of motivation and possibly ruining his own career, Stone forces him to join the United States Navy.

A small fleet of five alien ships arrives in response to the NASA signal. One ship collides with an orbital satellite and crashes in Hong Kong, while four others land in the waters near Hawaii. Sampson, John Paul Jones, and Myōkō are sent to investigate, but are trapped when one of the ships erects an impenetrable force field around the Hawaiian islands. The three destroyers attempt to establish contact, but the aliens open fire: Sampson and Myōkō are destroyed, with the entire crew of Sampson annihilated, including Stone, and John Paul Jones is damaged with the commanding and executive officers killed. Initially attached to Sampson, Alex, who was one of the few out to take a closer look at the alien vessels, now boards John Paul Jones. Being the most senior officer left in the ship, Alex is forced to take command. Although initially wanting to attack the alien ships in retaliation for his brother's and his crew's death, Alex is convinced to break off and recover survivors from Myōkō, with Captain Nagata among them; this act prompts the aliens to interpret the surviving destroyer as not a threat. Although the barrier is preventing the use of radar and sonar, Nagata reveals that they could use the tsunami warning buoys around Hawaii to track the alien vessels' movements by their displacement. During a night-time battle, the aliens and the Americans exchange pot shots, with John Paul Jones sinking two, but unable to lock onto the third. An alien soldier is recovered from the water; from the brief contact with the alien, the humans determine that the aliens are very sensitive to sunlight. Alex uses his ship to lure the alien vessel close to shore, where he and Nagata shoot out its bridge windows at sunrise, then proceed to fire at the alien vessel full force. Both John Paul Jones and the alien ship are destroyed in the ensuing battle.
