The other day I watched an episode of Star Trek first broadcast fifty four years ago. The Enterprise ends up in Earth's atmosphere above the USA in the late 1960s. (In American sci-fi, only the USA exists for things extraterrestrial) Jet fighters of that era are launched when the "UFO" is detected. Because of the mishap, propulsion is still weak, so Capt. Kirk uses a tractor beam to control the potentially dangerous fighter jet until orbit can be achieved. Mentioned often are UFO, fear, hostility, attack and harm.
How much did this episode permanently influence viewers to see Alien ETs and UFOs as all hostile? I was only about 6½ years along, we didn't have a "television set" yet. I wonder....This leads to questions for The Committee about visitors to Earth.
Note the recent full moon and Indonesian volcano eruption, Mt. Merapi.
