Three families' alien encounters over four generations were chronicled in this ambitious 10-part miniseries from executive producer Steven Spielberg. The saga opened as glowing orbs engulfed a crippled World War II bomber piloted by Russell Keys, who later became convinced---through a series of nightmares---that he had been abducted by aliens.
