I enjoyed this story, especially the crop circles, but I didn't think too much of the aliens' intelligence. High marks for egocentrism though.

Well written, but this is the oldest "twist" ending in the SF cliche bag, vis. "the protagonist is really alien rather than human," (or the reverse) or its variants, "the planet described is really earth"

My two cents.

I liked it very much. The way it seemed like a legal and/or military hearing was especially appealing. It was almost like readin an alien version of "Rules of Engagement" or "JAG."
