"Path of Destruction" is a
2005made-for-TV TBS (TV network)Original film that is now being screened on the Sci Fi Channel about a nanotechnologyexperiment gone awry.
After the government cuts funding to a nanotechnology project, the fictional company StarkCorp stores samples on an
oil rignear Alaska. However, an accident releases the nanomachines, witnessed by reporter Katherine Stern ( Danica McKellar). StarkCorp attempts to cover up the incident while the nanomachines cause storms and disintegrate objects. The disintegrated objects are made into more nanomachines.
Stark teams up with a scientist, Nathan McCain (Pratt) who once worked for StarkCorp, leading to the conspiracy and an attempt to stop the disaster. At first, McCain hesitates but eventually agrees to help Stern. They run around for a while, pursued by bad guys who are almost going out of their way to bully whoever stands in the picture.
Meanwhile, the United States military decides to disable the particles with a nuclear missile, despite fears that it will harm the west coast. However, after some consideration, it is decided that an experimental plane will be used to carry an EMP device to the nanomachines.
Meanwhile, the CEO of StarkCorp claims to apologize by bringing a deactivation device to national authorities. However, the chief scientist Dr. Van Owen knows that Stark is lying (taking the device to China), and brings him a bomb instead.
Later, the particles are disabled by the
electromagnetic pulsebut the colonel in charge of the operation, who did not fly a plane since the Gulf war but who is now flying an experimental plane, dies heroically in the process. The nuclear explosion, now deemed unnecessary, is aborted and the world is saved.
Van Owen forces information on the whereabouts of Stark from another executive after pistol whipping him like a girl and holding him at gunpoint. Van Owens enters the code for the bomb, but is killed by agents working for the Chinese government afterwards, and so is the StarkCorp executive.
Meanwhile, the bomb explodes, killing Stark on the plane, and StarkCorp assets are seized by the government.
Over the plot, Stern and McCain develop a romantic interest in each other; although they never kiss or show displays of affection, it is implied that they begin dating at the end of the film.
