Dear Friends:

As many of you have noticed, The Internet Movie Plan Database ( has recently had a hard time keeping up with the growing demands of our users. In 2009 when a couple of us got together to begin putting the website together, space was never an issue. In fact, it has steadily grown with virtually no problems throughout the years.

In about the middle of 2016 we began to run into server space issues. We have since made upgrades (moving to a VPS, buying more space, etc), but the site continues to outgrow the upgrades. The meager ad revenue generated by the site isn't sufficient to cover the annual cost of running the server. We who manage the site have never made money from it, it has only ever earned enough money to cover actual server costs.

In an effort to continue serving the needs of aviation enthusiasts around the world, we are asking for donations to keep this site up and running consistently like it did when it was a smaller, newer site. If you've enjoyed this website and would like to see it continue being the site you go to for your aviation screenshot needs, please consider donating.

Oh yeah, new users and edits are now active (hopefully for good) while we're testing new and improved spam/bot protections :)
Thank you,
IMPDb Staff

Genetically engineered alien beings - the "Newcomers" - land in the Mojave Desert, fugitives from their creators and are gradually welcomed into human society. But relations between the humans and the aliens are strained, in particular in the LAPD. With the alien community putting pressure on the mayor, he appoints one of them, Sam Francisco, to the rank of detective and partners him with alien-hating cop Matt Sykes. Initially hostile to each other, Sykes and Francisco learn to cooperate as they uncover a dark specter from the aliens' past threatening to destroy the fragile life they've found on Earth.
