I always wondered what aliens would make of the Voyager Golden Record. Would they think the “greetings” were a single message they needed to decypher? Would they try to “tune” the sound with them, thinking it was like the calibration image on the other side? Would they consider them the ads before the movie?
Now we know the answer: they’d freak out, but become hungry for more.
@ Frank: I always assumed they would just have absolutely no clue whatsoever as to what they were looking at. But you’re probably right. If it were the other way around and we were the recipients of the Golden Record (I think I heard a choir singing “I’ve got a Golden Record” like in Willy Wonka just then), I know I’d be hooked.
@ Anthony: Green indeed. But just for special occasions.
LOL … where does the green come from? Earth?
For whatever reason I just liked that the light on Ellie’s torso was green, even though it’s normally the only green thing in the strip. So when she projects her holograms, it only seemed right that they be in green too.
HA! That’s priceless.
