SCIENCE FICTION: Intercepted communication suggests 98 “Thenians” on board cylindrical-shaped UFO shot down on Friday over Alaska; Communication intercepted was in Chinese; Thenians have apparently called for military reinforcements; Reinforcements from nearest Thenian space base are at least 12 months away

John Kirby, the National Security Council spokesman, revealed in a press conference Sunday morning that U.S. military and intelligence agencies had intercepted a communication from the UFO shot down over Alasks on Friday.

The communication was apparently a kind of intergalactic S.O.S. distress call, directed to military authorities of the home planet and its nearby space stations.

According to Kirby, the message stated that the 98 Thenian crew members of the spacecraft were threatened with imminent destruction by aircraft from earth. The transmission contained video of the approaching rocket up to the oint of impact.

The Thenian S.O.S. called for military reinforcements which, it recognized, were at least 12 months away.

Since the cylindrical object was the size of a car, U.S. intelligence agencies speculated that the Thenians on board the space craft were no more than three inches tall.

The communication was in an unknown language which could not be immediately deciphered. However, it was accompanied by a translation into Chinese. It was from this Chinese translation that the U.S. learned of the message’s content. Chinese language text accompanying the translation indicated that the Thenians had been in contact with the Chinese earlier.

Kirby speculated that the Thenians had contacted the Chinese because they were able to translate Chinese characters but not other scripts. an additional possibility could have been that the Thenians saw China as the onAy major power not involved in the Ukraine war.

U.S. National Security officials, speaking on background, expressed relief that Earth would have 12 months to organize its defense before the Thenian reinforcements arrived.

Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky called on Russia to immediately withdraw its troops from all Ukrainian territory so that the conflict could be ended before the Thenian reinforcements arrive. He also called on Russia to commit to not using its veto as the U.N. Security Council assumes responsibility for coordinating military efforts among the various nations to defend the earth against military action by Thenians.

NASA officials, also speaking on background, said they did not have coordinates on where the Thenians’ home planet might be located. They surmised that the Thenians had access to some intergalactic transportation system which, however, could not reliably transport reinforcements to within less than a light year from earth.

Kirby also confirmed that President Joe Biden had reached out to world leaders to assist in forming a “Global Coalition for the Defense of the Earth”. He was not in a position to provide further details, he declared.

Since Kirby’s announcement, consternation and at times panic has gripped populations in countries throughout the world.
