Ent to negotiate As an ex army sniper Kara's role is clear But artist Marc has no combat experience although the team's pre cog Tse is adamant that he has a part to play All three know that success is unlikely For how will they negotiate with aliens when communication between the species is impossibl What if we experienced first contact with aliens and try as we might we couldn t communicate with them What if we had visits from 3 different types of aliens and couldn t communicate with any of them but we could trade with them random items for alien tec sometimes the trades can go wrong in one instance this resulted in the Arc de Triomphe hovering 3 meters above the ground permanentlyWhat if 40 years later we re still trying to communicate with them and still trying to figure out where we fit in the universal food chainThis is the premise of Netherspace Yes our technology has advanced yes we are able to travel light years through space in a matter of days in craft built of shipping containers and covered in Alien foam but we rely on Alien technology that is paid for in humans No one knows what happens
