The Voyage Home
Do not approach Earth.
The transmissions of an orbiting probe are cirtically damaging tihs planet.
It is ionizing our atmosphere. All power sources have faild.
Earth-orbiting starships are powerless. The probe is vaporizing our oceans.
We cannot survive unless a way can be found to respond the probe.
Further communications may not be possible.
Save your energy. Save yourselves.
Avoid thd planet Earth at all costs.

An unknown form of energy of great power and intelligence.
Unware that its transmissions are disruptive.
I find it illogicl that its intentions be hostile.

You’re suggesting the transmissions is meant for a life form other than man?
On screen. Maybe it is short for ‘Post it on the screen’.
Sort it out. e.g. Leave it with me ─ I’m sure I can sort it out.
