Well, not really, but there where many who start to wonder. Word got that Malaysian astrophysicist Mazalan Othman was in the running to be the first AA to greet the Shi'ar and other extraterrestrials to earth.
Mazlan had this to say:
"It sounds really cool, but I have to deny it," Mazlan Othman said in an e-mail to The Guardian.Could be true, or it could be a cover up. Maybe we should check out Area 51.
Reports about a UN alien ambassador got started when the Sunday Times reported that Othman was in the running to be the first point of contact for alien visitors. Othman was reportedly set to appear at a Royal Society conference to say that extraterrestrial contact was more likely than ever, and that Earth needed a plan to deal with their arrival.
Othman, however, told The Guardian that she will instead be talking about "near-Earth objects" at the conference rather than close encounters of the little green men kind.
