Human first contact comes in a solar system filled with hundreds of wildly variating species. The humans land & blend in without a blink. There is one human question: if there are so many species in the area, why has no one contacted us? The natives explain, humans are the first extra-solar species they've met. Every form of life on the home planet is worked on until they acheive intelligence. Then they choose to genetically modify themselves. They all derive from one planet. They wonder why humans chose to be so monomaniacal in only advancing themselves.
