We've landed, and across the valley, standing sharply against the distant gray range,
are the blocky white ruins. The early probes had only provided us low-resolution
glimpses of their alien architecture. We are eager to explore, but we must be careful.
Kicking around in an abandoned extraterrestrial complex could be analogous to a
curious prehistoric human poking around an abandoned twentieth century steel mill.
One wrong move and the early human encounters disastrous results. Even the best
trained future archaeologist, intrigued by the towering spires of Epsilon Eridani, must
first perform careful analysis by remote sensing to determine the properties of the
structures. Best to have an idea of what's there before treading on grounds that last
had activity when our ancestors first discovered fire.
