it had taken a little while but you'd finally came across a planet worth exploring, small earth-like clear signs of life, and more importantly signs of intelligent life, though perhaps not too advanced. The planet offered plenty to explore and you have a few options in terms of a landing zones, from what you could tell with your ships sensors, they where all fundamentally the same, so you picked one and approached it to land. landing was easy, and once you exit the ship you find that your in a clearing in an alien forest, the sound of birds and insects- or at least this planets equivalent- filled the air. looking around you didn't see any signs of intelligent life, but you'd only just landed.

Alex strapped on his EVA suit and grabbed his gun before stepping off the ship. He looked around before sending out his drone to do a preliminary scan. He wanted to make sure there wasn't nearby dangers before settling in for his adventure.

the drone went up and started to move quickly spiralling out from your position as it scans the area, it'd take a few minutes to get a significant range, but what you could see so far looked okay, it hadn't found anything dangerous yet

Alex went through his mental checklist: first set up camp, second find fauna and flora to study, last sell what info he could to appropriate parties. Camp was set up with the fact that the ship had a bed and was secure. Next was beginning his studies, so he began exploring the perimeter looking for any plant that stood out and listening for animals.

there where some pretty flowers, and something a kin to a mushroom, they might be interesting if you studied them a little, you didn't really recognise any of it so on sight at least, so it was hard to tell if any of it would actually be useful

Alex would collect a couple of the flowers for scanning when the drone came back. He didn't want to mess with the fungus with out the drone. He looked for a good tree to climb and search for any major land marks from higher ground.

the trees here where twisted and climbed slowly folding back on themselves making them easy to climb. as you got up higher you saw smoke about a kilometre away"

Alex saw the smoke and smiled a bit. Sentient life meant a bonus when sending in data on the planet. He climbed down the tree and moved as stealthily as he could towards the smoke. He told the drone to patrol around him to watch for danger.

as you got closer you heard voices, you couldn't understand what they where saying yet, but your translator would get the knack of it eventually (( translator because otherwise things get complex))

(Understood.)
Alex hid in the nearest bush and commanded the drone to try to sneak closer, but from a high altitude. He needed to get a visual on the natives, and confirm that they were actually native and not something like another explorer or pirate. He focused on listening to the voices waiting for the translator to work or the drone to get visuals.

the drone got a good view of what you soon discovered was a village. there where plenty of people and the tech-level suggested that the natives where indeed just that.
you felt something brush against your shoulder and as you turned to look you found someone looking down at you " ooh, anap" she tells you, possibly it was hard to tell, it could have been a question or a statement till you'd got enough of the language it was impossible to tell, she seemed more curious than hostile.

(I'm going to assume Alex has nanites or something to allow him to survive bacteria of foreign worlds and that his translator is a headset of some sort.)
Alex looked at the alien that decided to join him in his bushes. He contemplated speaking, but he remembered a big bit of advice from fellow explorers 'minimize contact with natives.' He wandered if he could escape the girl, but decided that running might turn her curiosity to aggression. He regretted that his EVA helmet lacked a black visor to hide his face. After much contemplation, he pulled his helmet off, but kept his translator on in case he could use it. He spoke with a smile. "You're pretty but I don't think interacting with you would be a good idea. Maybe I should kidnap you to keep you from telling others about me."
He chuckled at the thought.

she tilted her head and reached down and prodded your check, giving you a good look at her cleavage as you looked up at her " kanak t'cor'bat" she says her hands next moving to your eats pulling away hesitantly at what must be a strange feeling after all her's where very different

Alex let her mess with his face with a sigh. The classic response from a primitive. Feel up the random creature that looks similar to them. Alex gave her the return treatment but with a gentler touch. He poked her nose when he was done. "You're cute. Kind of a fish woman but a bit more squishy. Wonder if your more fish or mammal under those clothes."

Alex thought over how he could get out of this situation. He stepped back away from her as if he was worried. He wasn't honestly scared but he wanted her to prove it was safe to follow him. He spoke through the translator hoping it could translate him. "Follow is dangerous with out knowing where I'm going."

Alex sighed as he contemplated just running from her. His curiosity was beginning to win out over everything the explorers warned him not to do. He let out a sigh and hooked his helmet on his belt and spoke as he pulled out his gun. "If you try to harm me, I will hurt you."
He fired a round at a nearby tree before putting it away a stepping closer to her. He indicated that he'd follow her now.

she looked at your gun curiously and reaches out to touch it, not understanding you " whats that?" she asks curiously as she tries to touch it again

Alex moved the gun away from her and spoke hoping she'd understand him. "A weapon for protection. You have something you want to show me?"
