The Terrill are an elegant people. Some even likened them to gods. They were ambassadors for a better way of life, their every action a demonstration of the advantages of existence without conflict.

Some said that Jesus was a Terrill but they said that this is not the case. But they held Jesus's actions as examples to guide the lives of good galactic citizens.

It took generations, but with the Terrill guiding us we became a more gentle and better people. After a millennium, when their fleet arrived, we accepted the rule of our new masters with humility and grace.

Did the Terrill change once they became our masters? If not, then they wouldn't really be our masters. If they did, they're damn good liars. Hmm.
Good story.

My take is that we were suckered, like a bunch of small town rubes hustled by a couple of slick city fellers.

No, no Eric! If you want to be an Respected Author, you have pretend there is a deep philosophical underpinning which you won't reveal, since it's important for the reader to gain enlightenment on his own.

I like this one.

I would have liked to have heard it read; however, I never did check out the dribblecast. By the time I stopped procrastinating and made time to check it out, it was already gone.
