On June 21st 2029 a large golden sphere appeared in the sky over Vancouver, Canada. The occupants remained silent for several days until, unknown to everyone else on the planet, an intrepid reporter from the CBB managed to make contact. A few days later an alien agreed to meet and be interviewed. The interview content was, for those times, so unexpectedly strange that the interviewer decided he would be better off never showing the transcript to another living soul. Now, one thousand years later, his video notes have finally been found, transcribed, and for the first time the Emissary’s opening words to humankind can be enjoyed by every inhabitant of this wondrous planet.
CBB Interviewer: It’s hard to know where to begin. So let me first ask you why you decided to visit this rich and beautiful planet of ours.
Chepi: The Sphere brought me here. I had no idea your planet even existed until there it was, sprawled out in front of me like some chaotic ant hill.
