Rated 4.67/5 based on 3 reviews
An ancient alien probe is discovered drifting in deep space and is taken aboard the battleship, 'Temperance'. Although it poses no military threat, the offensive nature of the symbols etched on the craft's hull, might just be enough to provoke a war.

Rated 3-1/2 stars, meaning I liked it well enough to write reviews and hope it gets good 'sales'.

Why space probes should not have manufacturer's addresses. Amusing little short. You can read and enjoy this very quickly.

The alienness of the aliens is extremely well done; one of the best. Marred by minor errors like homophone spellings.
