What is some good science fiction like this?

I'm interested in good science fiction in any format (book, film, comics, etc.) that explores that idea that we are not alone in the universe, but wildly mismatched with everybody or nearly every else in terms of civilization stages, kinds of technology, perception, etc. [more inside]

Information Retrieval

I'm looking for the title of a science fiction B movie which I saw very long ago for which I have only a fragmentary memory: a lab worker is covering a bell-jar like contrivance which is encaging two small, glowing and bobbing spheres of some un-nameable plasma (creatures...?!). She leaves the darkened room, and the guys working the baby spot - I mean, they escape, wending their eerie way around the eerily lit lab....and the memory ends. What film is it?
