Cool First Contact / tonytrout



Well... I'm sort of in. If I can find a good idea. I dont want to do something so tight bummed like the last challenge.

Couple of ideas so far. Thinking about 2001 space odyssey and Bowie song Space Oddity and thought something along the lines of spaceman meeting God, like it was all true. Like spaceman meeting Jesus or the Maharishi or something floating on Mars, but with a twist .. couple of little martian kids playing a prank with their "simulcrom" but its probably offensive to some, so substitute bearded FEMALE biblical character, that God is a woman, but again probably too political, so I thought maybe Angelina Jolie with martians rolling around laughing in their control booth.

Anyway thats where I am with that at the moment

Other idea is very small people like fairies or classic Roman or Greek gods, what I want is like contact has revealed a truth we were never sure about.
