But can be avoided easily just by having 'History of Mankind' book available to them. Which I'm sure they will.
We can call it the bible. Lets hope dialect, writing and comprehension remains unchanged or the book will sound like unbelievable hogwash.
With the scientist they could also send a theology scholar up, to make sure we have their history/ evolution/ religion covered.
We can call these guys prophets, but many will stop believing their stories for they think it has no purpose in their lives for it was written too long ago to have any present purpose.
I'm pretty sure the human history part would be for them to read and available though. That's very important.
Do you consider the bible or other ancient lores as definitive history?

The Good, Bad and the Ugly would all be out.
Just a chance to get out from the thumb of danger from the less.... desired of our population.
You know the ones who are preditors and target humans.
It would be a very cool story or movie ( i want rights) about a massive ship with 10,000 ancient dead astronauts in a 2 thousand year old ship sent from another galaxy to earth in attempts to extend their race is found coming towards earth.
