    Hypothetical question - Let's say you were going out turkey hunting with your 12 gauge and the turkeys weren't gobbling. You know it's hopeless today, so you start haeding back to the truck. You see, all alone, a alien spaceship hovering in a field. Do you shoot it?

    I have seen the "shoot it and see what happens" idea go horribly sideways on a few occassions. My bet would be any alien that has a spaceship, also has something bigger than a 12 gauge to shoot back with. I think I would try to buddy up with them and see what kind of hunting opportunities they may have on their planet. Maybe some 2000 pound deer with 10 foot wide racks, or turkeys the size of cars, you can never have to many hunting buddies, especially ones with a good vehicle to get you places.

      No, I don't have an alien license and would have no idea how to field dress one, what constitutes a tropy worthy of the taxidermy costs, or who would be willing to mount it anyway. I would, however, probably be digging thru my pockets for my camera.

          ... so I'm thinking its because of people like you that science fiction writers always assume that visiting aliens will be hostile

            Plus, I'm pretty sure its a violation of the prime directive.

            Its certifiably in violation of first contact protocol.

            Not to mention conduct unbecoming a Starfleet officer, a court marshal-able offense.

                If I was as far frome the truck as I usualy end up turkey hunting, I would ask for a ride back to the truck.

                      Well being that my 12 gauge only shoots 3 inch shells, I would probably try to make friends with them. But of course if I had 3.5 inch shells I would shoot.

                          It is an alien, it had to have flown from out of this solar system, it is smarter then us, probably has bigger guns then a turkey hunter, and is much better armored then a turkey hunter. Even if for some reason he was wearing a bullet proof vest, i would reccomend taking a picture, run away, and call the cops.

                              One thing you trigger happy folks out there might want to consider is that any culture capable of interstellar travel probably has a pretty good bead on you before you get within shooting range of their vessel.
                              If you are fortunate enough to encounter an alien culture do ours a favor and approach in a peaceful manner. Otherwise you might end up being exterminated as an annoying predatory species. I doubt anyone wants their salted hide to end up on a stretcher in some intergalactic taxidermy studio waiting to be mounted alongside the primitive weapon you were carrying when harvested.
                              ken.mcloud, not sure why people are throwing negatives at you for advising that people not violate the Prime Directive but I did my part to balance the feedback.
