I have a Sci Fi story I want to write, and I do want to explore the issue of whether the alien races need redemption, and also, how the aliens in their own faith view the Catholics of Earth.  I haven't figured out all the details yet, but definitely no stain of liberalism there.  That's my intent at least!

What sort of lifeforms will these be? Will it be Star Trek like space opera? Will it be Lovecraftian entities?

I was thinking more Space Opera style aliens as it gives us points of connection that we can establish and understand.  That said, I'll do more than just change their noses and hairstyles. ;-)
