Beware the starmen bearing gifts. When they came from space they were not at all what some people expected them to be. No little green men, bug-eyed monsters, eight-tentacled slugs..

Why was it then that Ralph Kennedy, the man in charge of the Extraterrestrial Life Department felt an urgent sense of danger?
