It was such a big thing at the time ....First contact from other beings in the universe , but a few years later it seems old hat . The Amazonians , yes their planet really was called amazonia !. In fact there was a lot of similarities between the two cultures . They had a monetary system and comunication devices , worked for a living etc etc . their language was even close to ours . The one glaring differance was that women ruled the planet with an iron fist . In their race the female is dominant and also quit a bit bigger , men dont grow much past 5 feet but women regulaly grow to 12 feet tall ,some even taller . A lot of humans had left for amazonia looking for work or just looking for a new start . Those first men on Amazonia had mostly been brutalised by the massive women because it took them a while to realise that the amazons looked like us but were different when it came to rules of society . The women are very self centred and have no empathy for others . They are bad tempered and lash out pychically without a second thought . Their police force is all female and also deals with punishment in a number of harsh ways . Documentries from amazonia gave some insight into their thoughts on men and their place in life . They had no legal rights , were forced into manual work at a young age and were treated like slaves . The first humans working on amazonia soon found out what happened to any males that didnt obey the rules , human men were no different and the amazonians expected complete obedience at all times as they did from their own men . Troy hadnt had much work lately , everything seemed to be automated now . So he took the plunge and signed up for a year working on amazonia . He researched a fair bit before boarding the spacecraft the amazonians had kindly donated for us to use . As he sat reading on the week long flight he wondered if these big Amazons are really as rude and bullying as all the articals say they are . The craft carried on through space for 6 more days before slowing down as Amazonia aproached .Out the window it looked much like earth with clouds and continents and large oceans .
