    July 4th 1978, the Freemans (Cliff DeYoung, Veronica Cartwright) are preparing for fireworks and send oldest son, David (Joey Cramer) out to meet his little brother, Jeff (Albie Whitaker), when he goes missing. David reappears 8 years later having not aged a day since he left and at the same time a mysterious craft is located in downed power lines nearby. He doesn't quite believe until he sees "little" brother Jeff (Matt Adler), who is now older than him. Dr. Faraday (Howard Hesseman) of NASA is alerted when images of the craft appear in David's brain scans. In order to find the truth, the Freemans allow their son to go to NASA where he's kept from everyone but the doctors and a young assistant, Carolyn (Sarah Jessica Parker).

Wanting only to get home (preferably to his own time) David boards the ship and makes the Flight of the Navigator, this week on Doom Generation.
