When the Peloran made Contact with Earth, the greatest reaction was surprise. Humanity had long thought aliens had to exist out there somewhere. That Earth wasn’t alone in the cosmos as a source of life. The surprise was at just how…human the Peloran were. Aneerin and his crew actually looked more human than many teenagers walking down the streets. They could have disappeared into the crowds of any city on Earth and no one could have found them. That caused more than a little bit of consternation on Earth.
