They've perfected a deviceless transporter. "Beam me up, Akablark!"


Silly you, Tpaine, not to have realized that must be how they get here and back home again.



But... but... but... if they were that technically advanced wouldn't they have the Romulan cloaking device so we wouldn't see their ships and know there are UFO's? After all Kirk and Spock had to steal one to protect the Federation.

I've gotta agree that it might be lots more fun for them to snatch their human abductees unawares by means of a cloaking device.


But makes sense that they rather enjoy a bit of entrapment before hauling some poor sucker onboard to dissect and examine. I expect it's somewhat more effortless to nab us humans while we're pointing skyward and exclaiming, "Sunuvagun, Martha! Ain't that a UFO up there?"

I thing he as a more serious problem. His "visions" have some of the indications of Temporal Lobe Epilepsy. Or, he is really smart, has no morals, and is just taking his followers for all they got.


This whole discussion caused me to remember the Twilight Zone episode in which aliens visited earth and brought about world peace among other things, then offered people trips to their world. They left behind a book in their language titled How To Serve Man. As the protagonist was entering the spaceship to make the trip a lady translator ran up and just a bit too late called out, "Don't go, it's a cookbook!"


I like the Simpsons take on that.  If they want to eat us though, why all the anal probing?

I am a Humanist. I believe in a rational philosophy of life, informed by science, inspired by art, and motivated by a desire to do good for its own sake and not by an expectation of a reward or fear of punishment in an afterlife.
