Stella, an army brat who views traveling as an obviously superior form of existence, has settled down temporarily for a college education. She flitted from astronomy to astrology, astrophysics to numerology, before acquiring an interest in yet another science after seeing a T-shirt that read "Beam me up, Scotty! There are no intelligent lifeforms on this planet!" Stella was immediately convinced that there must have been a Sapient lifeform on earth at one time, so began coursework in paleontology.
Stella has developed what she calls the "Jurassic Star Trek Theory," namely that dinosaurs were not only of superior intelligence, but could also foretell the future. When their greatest shaman prophesied that a bipedal ape-like creature would come to dominate the world, and then develop the means for universal mass destruction, the dinosaurs figured, "Why wait?" So some beamed themselves to other planets, and the rest committed their own form of mass destruction by consuming too much fast food.
After graduation Stella intends to apply for a government grant to advance her theory-virtually guaranteed funding-then join NASA to pursue universal applications.
