A Cosmic Misunderstanding
A caper in space! Two ambassadors from Earth are just about to drop in on a newly discoverd civilization. But before they can enter the atmosphere, the species they were supposed to have lunch with captures their pod and tosses them into an orbiting prison. It's often this way with aliens; so close and yet so far.
