They are traveling through space on a ship with little resources. In the sky there was a ufo traveling and it was very bright and it was making a weird noise. The alien was over 6 ft tall and weight about 350 lbs. His voice was like ours and so was his language. The only thing was that the way they was through their mind. The alien intends to help with the catastrophes on earth . They are planning to give the humans advanced tech to protect our resources. The book most likely contains information about the aliens intelligence. Some scientists are testing the alien. They are asking him important questions about why he is helping the humans. The alien is transporting humans to his own planet with his kind of spaceship traveling really fast and will make it there in about a few days. The aliens have tricked the humans into thinking that they were going to help but really they were going to eat them because the book was a cook book instead of something interesting. When the alien said he was going to serve us, he meant that he was going to eat us. The reason why we thought they were going to obey us was because there are to different meanings to serve.
