But how do we know she'll be loyal to humanity?

Apparently, the UN has appointed someone to be humanity's contact person for any alien intelligences encountered:
The United Nations was set today to appoint an obscure Malaysian astrophysicist to act as Earth’s first contact for any aliens that may come visiting.

Mazlan Othman, the head of the UN's little-known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa), is to describe her potential new role next week at a scientific conference at the Royal Society’s Kavli conference centre in Buckinghamshire.

I'd totally love that job, but the risk of me betraying my species would be too great.

How long will it be before this woman is tasked with rooting out anti-alien racism? Totally serious here.
