"Aliens aren't Human!
No matter what the shape of an alien body or how great the intelligence of an alien brain, a creature born under another star and reared on another planet is not a man. He (or it) will not think, feel or react as a human would in the same circumstances - which doesn't mean that aliens cannot be thinking, feeling, or reacting creatures. When one Nipe is shipwrecked on earth, the entire race of man finds itself in a ten-year battle against a different mind - a battle to gain ten million years of alien knowledge - a battle to win the stars!"
