To be honest, I could believe in time travelling "observer craft" a lot more easily than greens, grays, and lizardmen.
And what's funny is that I was just thinking about this the other day. I was remembering how wierd that test-flight's blue exhaust flames looked
several years back, how it appeared to be a giant flaming blue bird streaking up into the night sky, before zipping off. In retrospect, it looked a
helluva lot like the Thunderbird designs I've seen woven and painted into various tribal blankets and arts.
An airplane would be the perfect observational tool for time travel, because it would have almost no impact on the past, and with today's technology
can read a postage stamp from 80k feet plus. You'd never have to worry about "getting discovered" because the plane would be mistaken for a dragon,
a thunderbird, a god or goddess. If it were a silent craft, it might never even be seen, because before flight, people only needed to look up to gauge
their position or to observe the stars. And if you ever landed, well, you'd be gods. A craft descending from the sky and humans coming out, in 500BC?
Oh yeah. Gods in chariots of fire.
Put weapons on the craft, like lasers, you've got Zeus' lightning bolts, but only a maniac or a fool would start killing humans off in the past.
We've already watched as Cargo Cults
formed in WWII from tribes that had never witnessed planes
before watched in amazement as planes landed and the servicemen inside disembarked. I could definitely see religions springing up around this in more
And the advances we've already made in time, such as discovering time passes differently the faster mass moves, combined with the incredible advances
we've made in aerospace technology and vehicles... I don't think it's outside the realm of possibility that it might be going on right now, and
almost certainly within the next 100 years.
