Volunteers Needed

Citizens of Earth, I come to you today to speak on an issue of tremendous importance to us all. It is with great deliberation and contemplation that the decision to bring this information to you today was made. For many years, decades in fact, we have known this information within the halls of government the world over. Not having a complete set of facts or an understanding of their import, we chose to withhold the information from the public. We feared a worst case scenario of public panic and anarchy weighed against a best case scenario of providing no real benefit. So we erred on the side of caution.

In recent years, however, the context of the situation has changed. The situation I am referring to is space travel and known life in the universe. We have known for many decades that there was microbial life elsewhere. Among the scientific community that was hardly a secret. What few know is that an alien ship crashed here many years ago, or that we have been in regular contact in the last decade with the civilization from whence it hailed.

Donna steps back to admire her work and Gerald smiles at her, “So, have you made me beautiful?”
