Alien Hunter

Synopsis: In 1947, in New Mexico, a radio operator receives a signal following patterns and while investigating the occurrence, he vanishes. In the present days, the same signal is transmitted from a base in the Falkland Islands to United States of America, and a satellite captures images of a unknown object in Antartic. The cryptologist Julien Rome (James Spader) is invited to investigate the mystery in the South Pole, and he flies to a research base. While a team tries to open a weird shell probably from the outer space, Julien solves the message, indeed a distress signal ordering not to open the case.

identified some sort of radio signal...

- Being emitted from it.

- Really?

They burned a spectrogram of it on this CD.

I thought you might like to look at it.

- Plain or with cheese?

- I don't care.

- Look at this.

- What have you got?

Look at that.

- Nonrandom?

- Definitely.

Fixed-length pulse groups,

discriminate text...

consisting of prime numbers

repeated over and over.

What about a meteorite?

A meteorite as big as this would've

left a mile-wide crater in the ice shelf.

It would explain an electromagnetic pulse.

Not a Nonrandom signal. Check this out.

That's a kickass frequency.

The dish transmitter at Arecibo

is 1,000 feet in diameter.

The most powerful on earth.

This signal's stronger and it's coming

from something the size of a pickup truck.

- You said it was Nonrandom?

- Yes, with a fixed pulse device.

You mean some sort of new search signal?

It's possible.

But search text is always

diverse samples with mathematical data.

This has no parallel plain text.

Like a tracking signal.

We're talking about a target signal

of 30,000 light years.

- We don't have that technology.

- Not that you know of.

I know what's on this disk.

I gotta see this up close.

Too many people

know about your past with SETI.

They'd read something into it.

You say that it may be a Russian satellite,

and I wanna run cryptanalysis on it.

All right.

But you do anything

to embarrass this institution...

you're gonna spend the rest of your days...

teaching communication skills

to the penguins down there.

Thank you, John.


- What is that bloody thing?

- I don't know.

I'll record it and we'll pass it on

to the Yanks at Kitt Peak.

Maybe they'll know.

There's a transport ieaving

Edwards Air Force Base tonight.
