Extraterrestrial, or Alien Sci-Fi is a form of Science Fiction focused around alien life. Whilst alien life is a relatively common aspect across science fiction, Extraterrestrial Sci-Fi instead focuses on it as a primary. Investigating the social and philosophical consequences of alien life on humanity. There are a number of major themes alongside this broad style of sci-fi. There are "First Contact" settings where humanity discovers, or is discovered by an intelligent alien species for the first time. There are "Alien Invasion" settings where humanity is invaded and often genocided by an often technologically superior alien force (this one can bleed into Apocalyptic settings). There are "Alien Investigator" settings too where a Ufologist, or a team of Ufologist-types investigate potential alien activity, or are somehow connected up into a conspiracy where Alien life is concealed from the public. There is also the lesser "Xenofiction" setting, where the narrative takes place from an alien perspective.

In this conspiratorial Sci-Fi thriller set some time after WWII and loosely based on the US government's real life Project Blue Book, Captain Michael Quinn and Dr. Allen Hynek are tasked by the US Air Force to investigate reports of UFOs and debunk them, or at least come up with rational explanations for them. While Quinn, a smooth and tough military type, doesn't care about anything other than doing the job he was given, at first, the more skeptical Hynek quickly becomes convinced that some kind of deadly conspiracy is afoot. Meanwhile, as Cold War paranoia spreads among the population, a charismatic blonde with an agenda of her own befriends Hynek's lonely wife.
