Thomas (Not his real name, but THOAMFHAGFAS was too hard to pronounce), has been sent to evaluate Earth. His job, given by his superiors, is to decide whether this planet is worth saving. 

As part of Earth's diplomatic relations team, the fate of humanity rests on you. Seeing as you live here, this is very important for you (obviously) so be careful, Thomas may even try to test you!
