It would seem like the discovery of intelligent life far out in the universe would be inapposite to the creation schemes of most religions - like that would undermine the idea of man's greatness and singularity as the image of god. After all, only a few hundred years ago, the geocentric model, univerally accepted by Christianity at the time, held that the earth was the center of the universe and all that existed. We now know that that is about as far from the truth as can possibly be. So how can Judeo/Christian/Islamic doctrine accept the possibility of intelligent, sentient, life dwelling on distant planets?
