I remember on the OC Remix forums someone posted a theory a scientist had, that if you had strong ehough Electo-Magnets you could slip into a "place where light was much faster."

Hoping but not believing that this will happen.

Yehat, they certanly have an english acent. Umgah would be a crapload of fun. And a Chenjestu encounter would be a great learning oportunity

I dont see how a first contact with the Yehat would go badly at all.

Consider that the Shofixti actually attacked the Yehat despite their grievous technological disadvantage. The Yehat were impressed by this and adopted their species.

So lets consider that the Yehat were to come to Earth today, and land a terminator in say, Central Park in New York.

I could easily envision us sending in troops, tanks, helicopters etc. In my view they'd be impressed at our show of strength.

The only thing to my thinking at least that would give them pause would be the knowledge that we're still a divided race. We'd appear backwards since in their view we're still in the wars of Ascension (at a first glance, of course).

Chenjesu likewise I couldnt see a negative outcome. They're a patient, peaceful race with nothing to hide. They'd likely comply with any reasonable demands made of them.

Now if we're talking about First contact with the Druuge, then I see a very valid area in which contact might end badly.

Humans are arrogant idiodic transitory lunk heads of course but the way I see it, if we can make it through 30 - 40 years of the cold war without nuking one another into oblivion, I'm thinking we can handle ourselves with first contact with an interstellar race.

That depends heavily on which race, and who exactly is making first contact. I certainly wouldn't want Pat Buchanan to do it, and there are so many just like him... Lots of potential to screw it up, that's all I'm saying.

Anfd, being a native of the tri-state area, I'm not certain a Terminator landing in Central Park would be met with much more than mild curiosity at best, and total apathy most likely. Land it on the lawn of the White House, however, and we'll have troops enroute to the Yehat homeworld within a week. Tongue
