Everyone here seems to think they are referring to larger, more intelligent life, when all they have to do is find a single-celled creature on Mars or the Moon that does not match ones we have hanging around here.
They even state that they're talking about microbes. And those would technically be considered "alien life".
Generally speaking state of the art technology usually runs about 10 to 20 years ahead of what is not classified today.

It isn't one of the first episodes, but maybe number 5 or 6, I'll keep checking.

Of course, NASA is behind public opinion on this, but they are scientific folks and don't take kindly to those that have other ideas about ETs. I can prove that is a fact...more or less. A few years ago I went to the Cape to see the shuttle blast off. I think it was the next to the last flight. The flight was scrubbed for that day and I spent considerable time exploring the gift store which is quite large there.
As an UFO addict, I was struck by a realization at one point and could not believe it. Then I carefully reconnoitered the entire store twice. In the whole store which has all sort of materials about space, I found not one item, T-shirt, key chain, cap or figure that had the term "UFO" upon it or featuring a picture of any type of alien, even the ever-present LGM.
Either NASA has no sense of humor, or they didn't want to do PR work for the competition.
(For any one to say that it was the store's decision not to feature such materials, I say, balderdash, such materials are retail money makers no matter where they are found, and they would not pass up on that bet unless the contract with NASA expressly prohibited such materials.)
