I think I figured out why the earth got kicked out of the alliance.
As everyone knows, the aliens set up a base on the far side of the moon and were waiting for the sentient species on earth to discover space travel
before making official contact and helping with further technological evolution.
So when the USA announced landing on the moon (they track our audio and video feeds), they assumed it to be true and that they missed making contact
with the alien base on the moon (the moon is an awfully large place and it is easy to miss the base). But since humanity, at least a part of it,
passed the qualifying criteria for contact, the aliens contacted the USA to help them advance their space technology. But there was a catch. Since the
moon landing was a fake, the folks at NASA couldn't actually show them the technology and ask how things could be improved. If they had shown them
the technology, the aliens would have instantly figured they were lying. So instead, these guys put up a brave face and declared that we would rather
figure out the improvements on our own. This totally impressed the aliens and they decided to grant membership of the alliance to earth immediately,
amembership which is normally reserved only for those races that have discovered faster than light travel. However the membership of the alliance
requires the member planets' representatives to meet periodically at different places all over the universe and that requires crafts that can travels
at speeds several times that of light. Since the earth doesn't have any such crafts, the aliens loaned a few of their own under the agreement that
they would be used for travel only to the Alliance meetings or within the solar system.
The folks at NASA thought they could study the crafts and reverse engineer the technology to build falster than light travel crafts. But after decades
they were no close to understanding the technology than they were at the beginning. It is possible they asked the aliens discreetly what the
technology was, but just as likely that the aliens politely refused to do so lest they deny a proud race of sentient beings the joy and pride of
discovering it themselves. As races that already discovered faster than light travel, they must also be aware how frustrating it gets just when you
are on the verge of the breakthrough, but haven't found it yet and how tempting it is to cheat yourself and regret it later. So everytime they were
approached by NASA scientists for a bit of help here or there, the aliens felt NASA were getting closer and closer to the breakthrough.
But the aliens have their own best case and worst case estimates of how long it takes a race to advance from sending beings to the closest celestial
object to discovering faster than light travel. When NASA surpassed their worst case time estimates by several times, they started wondering. It is
possible they figured humans are an extraordinarily slow race of learners and that we have been granted membership of the alliance too soon and hence
the current decision to kick earth out. But that is extremely unlikely. Earth's membership of the alliance has not been suspended or
revoked, it has been annulled and a motion to merely suspend it has been rejected
. This can only mean one thing, that the moon
landing announced was a fake and the aliens figured it out
! Meaning humans did not even pass the qualifying criterion for official contact!
Imagine an alien thinking "If this is what they do to their own
, can you even imagine what they would do to us
?" After all, with a
base on the moon how difficult can it be for the aliens to check for the artifacts supposedly left by the NASA teams and figure out the whole thing
was a hoax and they had been had?
So NASA fakes a moon landing to impress Americans and the world and we end up with blue in the face (or whatever their equivalent is) aliens. Talk
about unintended consequences!
Hope those guys are not too upset about it to blow us to kingdom come.
