"The idea that one or even more extra-Torajan civilizations have influenced us, our history, indeed our genes, is hereby proven."
- Herechas Nekides (quotation from a speech at the congress "Strange Antiquity - Gods, Ghosts & Spacemen" 1978)

A first generation of "Alpha Centaurians" was born and grew up. The first bases became settlements. The small colonies became something like states.
