Aliens have made contact! You are allowed to ask one question what will it be?


Recommended Posts

"What do you want from us?"

That would arguably be the most important question I could ask even though I would have more.

Since one does not come all this way to make contact and leave it at that. At least I know a human would'nt. Assuming they would have at least that much in common with us.

Well, this is Earth right... so we’d have already shot them first, the questions come after. 

I’d probably stand over it’s bleeding out body and ask “was it worth it?”

and so begins the billion year war for earth XD

If it were a Ferengi trader:

"Yes. 'Know your enemies... but do business with them always', rule of aquisition... "

Ferengi passes out as he dies.

Are there more civilisations out there?

 

Don't ask a question unless you're prepared for the answer.

 

Answer: Yes but no.

Yes: Definitely a civilization.

No: Not like us. Not what you're probably thinking when you think of scifi.

If I could only ask one question I'd not expect much from these aliens. So I'd go for the joke.

"AGAIN!?"

 

"For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction."

What happens when our civilization meets it's opposite? What if their ideals are contrary to our civilizations? What if they are aware of all this and familiar with our civilization prior to even coming? For better or worse I can only assure you of one thing.

They won't be coming to simply talk.

Ready. Set. Action!

The resistance will go about as well as well for the current human civilization as you could realistically would think. Guns. Missiles. Nukes.

They prepared for all of that with better tech and our civilization specifically in mind.

Game over. But for every ending, there is a begininning.

Assuming they answered you... which they might not, the answer would be no.

Then I shall be forced to go back to consuming mass quantities of Snacks.    

And not sharing my JD with those rude aliens.   I shall wait for a more friendly bunch to arrive.

Rude? Not necessarily. Chances are quite high the said aliens would announce their presence and motives to the world.

In other words, you should already know that they did not come to give you an offworld trip. So continuing to ask won't get you anywhere.

By the way... what is JD?

Even if you offered it, you have to understand that these aliens would only be staying long enough to do what they came to do and leave. They would likely have zero interest in the JD.

These are professionals after all.
