E. Shaun was probably just thinking ahead. Maybe we can make an argument that Epsilon Eridani is in our "territorial waters." The astronomers said it was in our "back yard." Only a measly 10.67 light years. And only about a billion years old - maybe nobody has staked it out yet. Of course, if some other nearby planet has bigger ray guns than us, forget about it.

That should read "nearby" solar system...obviously not ours.
