Humankind’s greatest adventure is but mere decades away. In this century, unmanned space probes equipped with artificial intelligence will be sent to search for life on planets beyond our solar system. But what happens when we find it?

Alien Planet is a 94-minute docufiction, originally airing on the Discovery Channel, about two internationally built robot probes searching for alien life on the fictional planet Darwin IV. It was based on the book Expedition, by sci-fi/fantasy artist and writer Wayne Douglas Barlowe, who was also executive producer on the special.
