What do you do if you see an alien lifeform ?
In character: Any alien who shows up on whatever world We happen to be on is either working for us or has a death wish. If its the latter, then it will find itself incinerated.
OOC: Judge it based on its appearance and either try to kill it or call my mother (a scientist) to pick it up and take it to her lab. Then get as much media as possible involved to make sure that it can't be covered up. From there, gather all the fame I can.
Take a lot of pictures and video footages save them on my phone and online if I can. I'd then watch it from a distance and judge it if I feel comfortable confronting it. I doubt I would, but if I did I definitely try to befriend it. How crash would it be to have a Alien from Space as a friend.
