I have some questions regarding the episode, Earthlings.

1. I noticed there were no subtitles when the Rannian language was spoken. I am curious, what were Adam, Alanna, Sardath and the Rannian police saying in the Rannian language throughout the episode?

2a. Does Sardath know that Alanna has a crush on Adam?

2b. If so, how does he feel about it? Does he accept his daughter's liking for Adam or is he against it or entirely neutral about it?

3. Does Adam have a crush on Alanna as well?

4. Do Rannians age the same rate as humans?

Alanna: Ba lalto onamao ol dol qu wake up! [It would really help if you would wake up!]

2a. It's hard to miss.
