What would happen if an alien confronted you? What’s the first question you would ask?
When I gave these questions some thought I realized I must consider how I would react to the sight of a real alien. Is it one of the Grays, the abductors? Or perhaps a Goiyan, Ja or Guardian, which are some of the alien species I depict in the Gray Guardians Series. Since I write about these aliens, I feel an affinity with them. I believe I know them and would feel comfortable speaking to each of my created species.
But there are unknown, alien species I haven’t created in my writing or heard of. Would I become a shaking, mumbling human, too terrified to speak?
I’m sure we all have fear issues to overcome when faced with an alien, but our curiosity would eventually take over.
Why are you here?
Where do you come from?
Have you been here before?
How far did you travel?
Why are you interested in humans?
Were you involved in our creation?
How long have you been coming to Earth?
Are you here to abduct me?
Have I been abducted before?
These are some of the questions that come to mind with first contact that some of us would ask. Then perhaps we would want more insight into their lives.
Is your planet like Earth?
Do you have families?
What is your job like?
Are you military or is that a private spacecraft?
What is your spacecraft propulsion system?
What is your anti-gravity system?
What type of government system do you live under?
Are there more species of aliens?
Are you carnivorous?
