WOW!!! In a book from the Animorph series called "Visser" it is about how the alien race "Yeerks" first came in contact with humans. As they
came upon earth they got all these shows, and one was Star Trek!!!!! She(I use She since later in the series the Yeerk, a parasitic brain slug that
crawls through your ear canal and takes over your brain, takes control of a human female) is amazed that humans have found a way to travel at the
speed of light, something that is impossible for them, they use Zero Space.(it isn't space, it isn't anything, like a wormhole that isn't instant,
in one book it was explained that Zero Space moves, and what once took a day to travel to now takes a year or more since Zero Space isn't stable)
Anyways, when she realizes it isn't real, she thinks it is a defense mechanism. That the humans send out false information to scare other races
away. That they send out info that shows them having technology beyond anyone elses so they are scared shiznickless and go away. Quite funny.
My take on it is that. That they won't know, and will either figure it out or be scared off. Imagine if they saw anything with Michael Jackson?
"Hey, who did we send there?" "We didn't send anyone." "Then who is that?" "Looks like Zuko." "No, he is back at Base 299 Milluc."
