For more examples, see my article: Yet it's a vacuum there. The thing is that of course it was a sunny day for the astronauts - you tend to forget when you see the black sky.
Her Oontatherium artwork by John Pederson, Jr. The scouts are currently freaking out. We have to get off this planet and—Oh, God, why did we have to find the damned thing? Man…what is man that thou art mindful of him? Civilization is a freak. Why should the Jorillians have gone beyond an Upper Paleolithic technology?
They never needed to. A bright Jorillian has more prestige, rises higher in life, gets more mates and children, and so it goes. But this is an easy environment, at least in the present geological epoch. How can you measure an intelligence so much greater than your own? I heard the forest sough in the night around us.
And…well, I always imagined the Elders having machines, science, space travel. I doubt the population of this whole planet is ten million. There are fifteen billion humans in the Solar System and the colonies! So a Jorillian can outthink me.

And so would every other thinking species, unless the Jorillians were merciful enough to leave them alone. Which the Jorillians probably would be. But who wants that kind of mercy?
I looked upon horror. Only Vaughan had the courage to voice the thing: Cultures too dangerous to allow modern weapons, let alone spaceships.
Joril can be interdicted. Haraszthy spoke an obscenity. His face was ablaze. The rest of us sat in a chill sweat. There can be too great a price for survival.
And take our chances like men! Haraszthy knotted a fist. Let him go, I said! Vaughan tumbled to the deck. Haraszthy sat down, buried his head in his hands, and struggled not to sob.
