It occurs to me that as much as 'humans are the scary tmes" ttis sometimes, if
you look at it another way, humans mien seem like the absurdly friendly or
I mean, who looked at art elephant, gigantic creature thoroughly capable of killing
someone its has to, Tm magi?
And put a human near any canine predator and there' s a strong chance of said
human yelling “PUPPY? and initiating playful interaction with it.
And what about the people who look at whales. bigger than mainly everything
else. and decide Tm gonna swim with our splashy danger friends!"
Heck. for all we knew, humans might into the scariest, toughest aliens out
there and say "Heck with it. I' m gonna hug "ernf
dunno. I gotta hug
and its like the first friendly interaction the species has had it forever so
suddenly humanity has a bunch of big scary friends.
Commander, we must update the code of conduct to include the humans."
Why? Are they more mews than we anticipated?"
It seems to be the opposite Commander. Just this rooming a crewman heady lost
their hand when attempting to stroke an unidentified feline on an unknown mud
Their reactionimage attack was mean a "mean kitty‘ andrew town: it
over. Upon inquiry it seems they bond so readily with creatures outside their
species that they have the capacity to feel sympathy for an alien creature they have
never seen before simply because it appears distressed. i hate to say this
commander but we must install a we to prevent them hem endangering their own
lives when interacting with the galatar' s fauna.‘
t see what you mean- So be it, from new on no crewman is allowed to touch
unknown animals without whom from a superior Miter. And send a message to
supplies about acquiring one mime "puppies" so that their desprate touch timed
predators can be safely sated.
Emmet love that Every one someone adds a short story to my post it gets like 90%
cuter and more epic
Lets be honest, the humans would ignore the hell outta that nits whenever alone.
Sol hear that you' just receded a human tor your ship."
Yes., " the first time that l' worked with these species, but they come mm recommended.
Say, you' worried with a few, what tips can you give me? I' d hate to have some kind of
cultural if it' s
The first rule of working with humans is never leave them unsupervised."
I' m serious. Don' t do it. Things. Happen,"
But wat I thought that I heard you highly recommended that every crew should have at least
one on board?‘
Absolutely. and I stand by that. Humans are excellent innovators. and are psychologically
very resilient. If you have a crisis. than a human that has bonded wilt your crew properly can
be invaluable- Treat your human wetland you should get the best out of there as a crew
member. Their ability to get on with almost any species is legendary.‘
But Tetra, didn' t you just say.. -"
The trouble is that they wit potentially try to band with anything. If you leave them
unsupervised, you have he idea what kind of trouble they cam get themselves into. It was
sheer luck that the Reactions thought that it was funny that the human picked up the Crown
Prince to coo at him.'
Crown Prince Horrah. Scourge of Pixie?’
The very same. Surprisingly good sense of humour. But don' t even get me started on that one
time with the motto. AIM uman wanted to know it they could keep it. As a pet?
is Donia? You mean the it metre tall apex predators from Jocund
Yup. Don' t have momma’
Til uh, take that under advisement‘
Seriously. Get a supply of safe animals for the humans to band with or they will make their own. I
mean, they will try to befriend anything they cents across anyway, but without any permanent pets
they can get. '" creative. [tent even get me started on the time one of them taped a knife to cine of
our ) ; and named it Stabby,
Three weeks in and when we caught the wretched thing, havethe humans on crew vied to
revolt about us "killing" Ste: -by by removing the knife.
How. .- how did you resolve that sir'?"
made a toy knife out of insulation rubber and strapped that on instead. Quite a creative
solution, I suppose"
And that sated the humans?
They thought it was so funny they made a second one. strapped false eyes on springs to both
some mock battles. Then decided Stabby and were in love and new will
allow the others to stage between them any more.‘
So, ill supply my Humans with safe bonding pets they will behave better when on other planets?
Where dot get safe banding pets?"
Realizing the havoc their species created with their bending needs. Earth has been kind enough to
create an inter galactic 'pet' shop as they call it, the order tonne are on the bridge.‘
if they get a pet this should prevent any knife welding ?
You: don' t some very reassuring"
IMI. .. You have to understand that some of what humans find attractive about their 'pets' is actually
what makes them dangerous. Not all of what they consider 'satta is what we would consider 'sare' f
Allt. -- were stints nervous about this,"
No, no, its tine, l' m lust saying you should maybe keep an eye on what they order. Ask them to
describe the creature before they get it. For example, the first time I had a human on board I let them
order a pet without checking what it was."
Well, when it arrived it was a 25 pound tangled and clawed feline creature called a Savannah Cat. My
entire crew was terrified of it, it was agile and could easily have seriously injured someone, but the
human had no fear of it They insisted on carrying it mound like a child. and they would squeeze it' s
beans' as they said, forcing the creatures claws out. and then they would show people " deadly
claws when saying, and I quote, ‘look at its adorable claws. this is what it uses to kills things, isn' t it
l have also heard stories from other crews that their hornets ordered canines that weigh as much or
more than they do, and they sleep next to the giant creature."
Tort are notn' ' stories..."
