    The aliens want to meet us.

    Name 5 human representatives that you would want to send to meet the aliens during first contact.

    What qualities and traits in these 5 humans are important for that first impression?

    I'd only send one person: Christopher Walken.

    No, I don't need to explain my reasons.

    If they are hyper-intelligent then the first impression doesn't matter much.

    Is weird alien sex involved during the first contact?

    If so, I volunteer myself.

    If they are really hyper-intelligent, they'd probably nuke earth before talking to anyone. Just to be safe :D

    I'd want to know what the weird alien sex involves before I volunteer myself for it.

    Like what if they're a race of intelligent sponges? All detachable parts, and holes everywhere. Do you know what would you do then?

    ...probably not. But Christopher Walken would.

    No one from the government. They'll try to take control, go to their home planet, and tell them how to run their society.

    If they really were hyper-intelligent, they wouldn't even want to meet. They'd look down upon us like we do with bugs.

    Hyper-intelligent beings on Earth, you say?

    That would be a first!

    :)

    ----------

    Not if the aliens all work in intergalactic PR and advertising.

    ----------

    Good one. But we're looking for representatives of Earth, not just PRSI!

    (I know, I know. Some folks can't tell the difference.)

    I would send one of our eggheads (scientist) and 4 trigger happy Deltas (soldiers). The Deltas to deal with the aliens and the egghead to tell the Deltas what's okay and not okay to blow up. *I* want their Miracle Special Ultra Super Megaton Technology.:p:D

    My favorite Twilight Zone episode!

    That being said, I'd send Al Sharpton. Maybe they'd take him away...permanently

    We don't need to meet or see 5 representatives.

    We already know enough about you.
