In the not-too-distant future, an alien Artifact lands on Earth, marking humanity’s first contact with an alien intelligence. But it lies seemingly dormant, and we have no idea what it wants—whether this is the start of a friendship or a prelude to war.
Commander Niko Breckinridge (Katee Sackhoff) leads Earth’s first interstellar mission, travelling across the galaxy on a repurposed exploratory spaceship, The Salvare, to the planet where we believe the Artifact originated from. She and her young crew, along with an untested sentient A.I. named William (Samuel Anderson), face every danger both known and unknown in space, on what might very well be a one-way mission.
With great misgivings, Niko leaves her young family behind on Earth: her daughter, Jana (Lina Renna), and her husband, Erik (Justin Chatwin), a gifted scientist. As she flies toward the stars, Erik risks life and limb to make contact with the Artifact on Earth and encounters puzzle after puzzle. Will Erik crack the code before Niko reaches the alien planet? Will The Salvare’s crew discover the alien civilization is a friend or a foe? And will Niko ever be reunited with the two people she ventured out into interstellar space to protect?
Another Life is an examination of life in the vast emptiness of the universe and explores the lengths that we, and others, will go to in order to protect the ones we love.
