Lost Voyagers

Post by CLP » Wed Jun 01, 2011 2:07 pm

They came in rusted pill-shaped spaceship, propelled by manually cranking long mechanical flagella. They crashed into the Pacific off the coast of Oregon.

We met them with aircraft carriers and found hundreds of them waiting atop the ship. They were humanoid and sickly white. They had stumpy legs and oversized muscled arms hanging nearly to the ground.

One spoke in a guttural language, sounding strangely Russian and it wasn’t until after we exterminated every last one, that we noticed the hammer and sickle on the ship.

Their last words were later translated, “After generations, we finally return to our Motherplanet!”

Don't worry they kept her alive, they thought she was a prisoner. She's the one who actually translated.
