I am a new member to this community, and I just wanted to take this time to say "hi" to you all, the other members of the group. If you don't mind reading further, I have this story idea that came to me while I was sitting in my last period Western Civ class listening to my teacher wax poetic on the Olympics project that we all of us had to do. As she talked, a random idea popped into my head: "What if one day when humanity goes out into space we encounter an alien species that is on par technologically with us? And what if we allow these aliens to participate in our Olympic Games?" I'd like any opinions and ideas that you might have concerning this idea, and any and all comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
