A lonely doctor.
A desperate alien race.
Which blue planet will survive?
This short story prequel features the First Contact between planets Rison and Earth. They’ve known for 25 years that the other planet existed and had intelligent life similar to Earth. But Rison has never allowed them to visit their home world.
Suddenly, out of the blue, Rison requests a medical team to meet them on their planet’s Moon Base. Commander Rose manages to find a place on the team because he’s an expert in comparative anatomy. But he has no idea what First Contact will mean to him. And to Earth.
