Default Re: Doona: First contact.

The Hrrubans deliberately fostered the misconception that they were the natives, by not using advanced technology in the presence of the humans. Hrrestan could only give very subtle hints, and Ken Reeve would hardly have expected to see binary symbols in that context. On the other hand, the humans were a little conceited, automatically assuming that any other race they met in space was bound to be less technologically advanced than themselves.
