Comments:

Dr. John Donaldson is the world's number one expert on the alien language called Kethlan, known from ancient documents on Mars and the Moon, so when a living Kethlan shows up, he is of course called to translate. But it's so unpleasant how alien aliens can be. And the assumptions made on the basis of millennia-old writings may not be accurate today.
