If an alien ship were to land in your backyard and choose you as the earthly representative of humanity, what would you tell them about our world? Would you consider going back with them for a visit?
Odd. I just started Script Frenzy yesterday and the crux of the story is an alien encounter. I haven't quite settled on the details but I expect them to be sentinels, benign, minuscule, somewhat like the Moties, but not destructive, perhaps mechanisms rather than organisms. The main character's representation of mankind will be a bit pathetic, i.e., he gets in mortal danger and has to somehow explain to the dense aliens that he is in dire need of help.
