What happens when we find life outside our own planet? Discovery Channel proposes an answer to this question by bringing viewers on a virtual mission of the future. We are currently searching the galaxy for planets able to support life, and "Alien Planet" dramatizes the goal of that search. The drama takes place on Darwin IV, a planet 6.5 light years from earth, with 2 suns and 60% gravity. Having identified Darwin as a world that could support life, Earth sends a pilot mission consisting of the Mothership Von Braun and three probes: Balboa, Da Vinci, and Newton. This unmanned fleet is responsible for finding and assessing any life forms on Darwin IV. Initially, the expectation is to find microscopic life, but the probes soon find themselves in the middle of a developed ecosystem teeming with diversity of life of all sizes.
