An Alien named Tim

2 years, 2 months ago

Timmy: alright Ian, this is close enough, shut the engines off, and start the primary observation system. Since this is your first observatory mission, feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Ian: you got it boss. So why are we observing this planet anyway?

Timmy: Well, this is the first planet in our galaxy we have found that has water. Its been 35 years since we last found a planet with water.

Ian: Right. Thats cool I guess. The last one was Alpha 6 right? So were here to do the same thing to this planet as we did to Alpha 6?

Timmy: Well, basically. With Alpha 6, we saved a lot of the species we found for furthur testing and studies. This mission is a straight exterminate and conquer mission.

Ian: So…exterminate the entire population on the planet, and take the materials we need?

Timmy: Correct! Your really good at this, Are you sure this is your first mission? haha. Not only do they have an abundance of water supply, but they also have a lot of other materials we keep running out of. Like petroleum and a lot of basic metals.

Ian: No kidding? Wow, this planet is a lot like ours. I was reading the reports on the population on the planet…and they seem to be a very intelligent species.

Timmy: Very intelligent. A lot like us, hundreds of years ago. They have begun reaching out into their solar system and trying to furthur their knowledge of the universe around them.

Ian: Wait, so they have space travel capabilities? This might seem like a dumb question boss… but how come we have never attempted to make contact with any of the planets we encounter? Yes, most of the species I have read about have been non-intelligent… but this one seems different. I feel like we could actually learn a thing or two from these creatures.

Timmy: Stop thinking such rudamentary things Ian. You know this species would freak out if we ever attempted to make contact. You have read our history books. You remember when our civilization didnt know any other species existed in the universe? What if aliens had come to our planet to just “talk”? We would have blasted them with everything we had. Whose to say this species wouldnt do the same to us? No need to take such risks. Just take the materials we need for our civilization to survive. Thats what we have always been, and thats the way it shall always be. We can learn more about their race once their dead. Ive heard they right books and make movies, just like we do.

Ian: Haha, yea, I watched a few of their movies during my studies. They often make movies about aliens attacking. They always depict us as little green men. How absurd.

Timmy: See, now your understanding. This species doesnt have a chance of a long survival. They have wars among themselves over everything, mostly over something called a God and something called religion. More than 90% of them believe in this “God”.

Ian: God? god…god… You know I somewhat remember reading something about that word. And religion. Im pretty sure that our species use to believe in such things. But that was a long time ago, over 400 years ago. I cant remember what it was exactly, but it made us fight with each other too.

Timmy: Enough with the history lessons, Ian. Were here to work. Its time to call home base and let them know we have extracted the prelimanary reports on this planets defense systems. Nothing we havent seen before. It should be a standard 8 day attack and conquer mission. Since this is your first observatory mission, ill let you make the call!

Ian: You got it boss.

RING RING RING

Ian: Hello, Houston? This is NASA space shuttle Atlantis. We have completed our preliminary reports and are ready to return to Earth.

Houston: Roger that, Space Shuttle Atlantis. You are cleared to return to Earth. Have a safe flight back.

The End.
