Human contact with Venaliri
Humans have detected radio signals from Mirabilis system in 12304 AD. Soon they have organized a expedition to Mirabilis. Because of Mira high pressure and not wanting to affect Venalirian society, humans set up a space station around Mira to study her life. They also send radio signals to Mira's surface to be picked up by her native. Humans and Venaliri have never meet in person. What humans know about Venalirian society comes from their TV signals and incomplete data from robotic probes.
