These days, abductees describe aliens as... well, alien - little greys, for example. By all acounts, definitely not creatures you' want to meet.
However, in the good old days of the contactee movement (or with Billy Meier's Pleaidians), the extraterrestrials were / are human-like, and beautiful.
All things considered, then, I would much rather be "contacted" than "abducted."
Which leads to the inevitable question...
If I was contacted by an extraterrestrial, which human would I - or you, dear reader - want them to resemble?
The point of reference for this discussion is science fiction movies and television series.
For me, the answer is easy - Erin Gray, aka Colonel Wilma Deering in the Buck Rogers television series. I used to beg the folks at Space to stick it in their line-up, but I now own the Box DVD set, so I can watch Erin / Wilma whenever I want (Erin Gray is the only woman I know who could make "Wilma" sexy).
I had such a crush on her when I was younger. Technically she wasn't an alien on Buck Rogers(she played a human woman)... but so what? She was once possessed by a space vampire, which made her a sort of alien, and that's close enough for me!
Anyway, I'd be interested in hearing from other prospective "contactees" - which sci-fi character would you like to have take you on "a ride" to Venus?
