By C.E. Gee

A large space ship emerged from the Sun.

Mid-21st century Solarians knew aliens utilized hyperspace channels connecting black holes to suns for interstellar travel. However, the Solarians did not yet have the capability to construct a ship that could withstand the heat of the sun.

“Attention beings of Earth,” broadcast the ship over numerous RF channels. “By analyzing your radio frequency transmissions we are able to communicate with you.”

A Solarian communications technician responded with, “O-o-o-kay?”

The reply was, “We need your planet. Standby for our actions.”

Solarian Space Force seized control of the ship.

Copying the ship’s design, Solarians began to travel the galaxy.
