My perfect alien? Hmmmm.....
Well, how about an organic, metallic being, seven to eight feet tall, impossibly broad in the shoulder, heavy with pnuematic muscles and visible veins
coursing with mercurial blood?
Maybe we could also include, beneath a crested dome of a skull, an impassive, noble face, almost featureless but with sufficient expression that lets
you know in no uncertain, but kindly terms, that humans are, very definetely a young and as yet, inferior species.
Let's add to that the hands of a surgeon, the eyes of the kindest sage, and
wisdom that could only come from a society that has passed beyond intelectual struggle and physical conflict.
Can you tell I read sci fi?
