Far, far away from Earth, on a place completely unknown to anyone, a human-like alien was sitting on a working console. His legs were crossed over the counter in front of him; his hands were browsing through the multiple holographic images in the air above his face. His face was extended and there was no hair on his skin.

A radiant light appeared and before the alien would say anything, in front of him appeared a holographic image of a strange creature, maybe a representative of an unknown alien race.

There was no doubt that this was the same Isa, who was selling water on the Zaltarians.

"This is the spaceship Marick on the planet Vespa," the hologram image replied.
"Past or Future?" Isa asked.
"They arrived on Earth from the past. Actually from the year 2014," the reporter concluded.
