This is interesting. Why should they regard human language as more
"monotonous" than music? That would be a very romantic race of aliens,
indeed. According to that premise, the sound of a modem connecting at
56 kbps would be totally unmeaningful to these gentlemen. If it's so,
the question then becomes: how did they come upon the Voyager, unless
it stroke some alien's head?
