Drabble: The Native Problem

The Native Problem

“So let me get this again. They want us to believe in their gods.”

“Gods? You mean, they haven’t left that stage far behind? But they are so advanced!”

“Indeed, gods.”

“They sail the stars! How could they become so advanced with such childish thinking?”

“And yet, it is so.”

“Perhaps the gods are metaphor.”

“They want us to sing their praises, to ask boons!”

“Like in the old geas?”


Frelig pondered. “Perhaps they recieved their machines from a more advanced race?”

“Quite likely.”

“Then they are dangerous. A race so young, with such technology?”

“They must be destroyed.”
