"We should consider a landing site and strategy," Prime said.
The science officer, designated Beta, replied, "There are any number of population centers. I suggest that we avoid them and land in a less populated region to give us time to understand the civilization." She frowned. "Perhaps I should say 'civilizations'. There is clearly no world social structure or universal language. The level of technology is surprisingly advanced considering that there is so little cooperation."
"Are they humanoid?" The security officer, designated Alpha wondered. "Our understanding of the progenitors and their seeding of this galactic quadrant makes that likely. They SHOULD have much in common with us; but... no common language? No world government? It's a wonder they haven't yet destroyed themselves!"
Prime considered. As the Contact and Diplomatic officer the decision would be hers. "We'll do as you suggest, Beta. Give me some alternative landing sites. We'll discuss and decide."
Molly's art notes: A little retro sci fi for a change! Set up and rendered in Poser 12.0.500 using the Superfly Cycles 2 rendering engine and then tweaked a bit in Photoshop (mainly to add a subtle vignette). The background is Coflek-Gnorg's space sphere and the ship is Cybertenko's discplane with a few material tweaks (I didn't like the glass in the dome). The characters are all DAZ generation 3 dollies: V3 improved by Blackhearted's GND 2 morphs and textures, SP improved by Blackhearted's Irina 2 morphs and textures and Aiko 3 improved with some stuff from DAZ. All of the character textures were optimized for Superfly with Snarlygribbly's EZSkin 3 (which doesn't work in Poser 12 so I had to boot Poser 11 to use EZSkin; I so hope someone will update that script!). The uniforms come from an unknown source and are called male comic overlays. There's a lot in the Poser library from more than 15 years ago that my husband got from I don't know where.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a nice comment, Nobby! As I've noted elsewhere, Cybertenko's nice content makes getting an interesting image pretty easy.☺
