Oddly enough, it turned out the aliens didn't come to enlighten or enslave us. They came with a business proposition--fuel for food. Veggie-burgers, black bean and mushroom ones, specifically. They were also willing to perform manual labor for fried zucchini and use their molecular de-formulators to get rid of Earth's landfills.
It wasn't altruistic, though it may have seamed that way to us at first; they turned out to be using the stuff to police fourth-dimensional beings that ran roughshod over their home planet.
I didn't care; veggie burger sales were down and I had a business to keep afloat.
