A crew of explorers from the planet Gaia comes to Earth, where their first contact with humanity demonstrates the power of emotion in the new novel “Alien Encounter” (published by Balboa Press AU) by Terry Parker.

The Gaians are looking for sentient life and find earth, which contains a society that is male dominated contrasted to the Gaians who follow a matriarchal system. A series of failures leads to the commander being exiled to earth where she battles with her main rival. The Gaians, a culture based on pure logic, realize that emotion is essential for a successful culture and take their friend, Jim, to Gaia to improve their society where another rebellion is crushed.

The book is an adventure that incorporates scientific theory which is intended to make the reader think and explore culture and science. The book also looks at the strengths and weaknesses of society from the outside.
