Unearthed is the twenty-fourth episode of Ben 10: Alien Force.
A DNAlien mining operation uncovers an alien spacecraft, from which a large alien child is released. She wanders around the nearby town collecting random items, eventually attracting the attention of Ben, Gwen, and Kevin.
Ben's team initially believe the damage to be the work of a DNAlien, but discover it's something else. After finding the creature and seeing she's holding the DNAlien's power coupling they mistake her for working with the DNAliens. Ben turns into Humungousaur and engages in battle, but after hitting her once she begins to cry. At first she's evenly matched with Humungousaur, until he increases his size and scares her away. The creature then finds Gwen, who perceives her in her Anodite form, and picks her up. After heeding Gwen's instructions, she realizes the creature is a baby and a girl. At that moment, the DNAliens who had lost the power coupling find the creature and Ben's Team. After tossing the power coupling to each other, Ben grabs and turns into Echo Echo to "split up". One Echo Echo clone runs with the coupling while the others sneak up behind the DNAliens and blast them. After the chase ends, Ben returns the power coupling to the eager creature and is at a loss over what they should do.
Eventually, they babysit the creature in Kevin's garage, with the boys always making Gwen check on the creature. When she takes a bite out of Kevin's Car, he angrily declares she has to go.
Needing to return the child to her parents, the team follows her back to her ship. After defeating the DNAliens, the team awakens the child's parents, who depart the planet after Ben explains that they've been in stasis for fifty years because of a time-experiment gone bad 50 years ago.
