Your intergalactic warp Leer cruiser has just passed through a wicked ion storm where exotic particles have made scrambled eggs of the diamond based holographic memory core your ship's AI uses as a brain. Poor Stella. That was your ship's name. Anyway... You have just enough manual control of the ship's impulse engines to land it on the nearby M type planet. You've been studying this planet and there is intelligent life. Very, very ugly, scary, intelligent life. Pick the beastie you fear the most. Yup. There ya' go. Do you go to them for help? P.S. No fair Disney-fying the locals.
