Does anyone remember SETI?
What’s more, does anyone remember that Windows screensaver that helped analyse signals from outer space in that desperate search for extra terrestrial life?
Millions were spent scanning the universe looking for those elusive signs of life. Rather strangely they were quick to deny any possibility that alien craft had been spotted and any sighting was dismissed, usually with the excuse that it was a weather balloon or somesuch.
Well, they found a weather balloon, or anyway a balloon whether it was weather or not. They shot it down.
Then a bunch of UFOs appear. They destroyed them.
They say the UFOs were “unmanned” but how did they know? Did they expect a little chap peering out of a cockpit window? Was it supposed to have a little glass bubble on top housing the pilot? How can anyone even guess at the technology of a species that can travel millions of light years [easy when you can control time and dimensions] in order to bring us peace and prosperity for all and a membership of the UN [United Nebulas]?
Maybe those UFOs contained an Intergalactic Ambassador and his retinue. Maybe they contained all the knowledge to advance civalisation to unimaginable delights and happiness. Maybe they contained the cure for the Common Cold and hangovers.
We’ll never know now.
