Affiliation Ashtar Command

Vrillon (or Asteron) is, according to Ashtar Command contactee claims, an extraterrestrial being and a member of Ashtar Command. The being was first represented to the public via a broadcast interruption of the English network ITV's Southern Television channel at 17:10 on 26 November 1977, during a newscast featuring Andrew Gardner, and was thereafter incorporated into other contactee reports.

The interruption begins as Andrew Gardner reads a news report on Rhodesia.
The interruption ends as "Merrie Melodies" begins -- an episode opening with the Bugs Bunny cartoon "Falling Hare", in which the plucky lead battles a gremlin sabotaging fighter planes.
  • Transcript:

    This is the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. For many years you have seen us as lights in the skies. We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet Earth. We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your world so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disaster which threatens your world, and the beings on our worlds around you. This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius. The New Age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgements. Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again. All your weapons of evil must be removed. The time for conflict is now past and the race of which you are a part may proceed to the higher stages of its evolution if you show yourselves worthy to do this. You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill. Small groups all over the planet are learning this, and exist to pass on the light of the dawning New Age to you all. You are free to accept or reject their teachings, but only those who learn to live in peace will pass to the higher realms of spiritual evolution.

    Hear now the voice of Vrillon, a representative of the Ashtar Galactic Command, speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides operating in your world. They will suck your energy from you – the energy you call money and will put it to evil ends and give you worthless dross in return. Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within that can tell you what is truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you and you will lead yourselves onto the path of evolution. This is our message to our dear friends. We have watched you growing for many years as you too have watched our lights in your skies. You know now that we are here, and that there are more beings on and around your Earth than your scientists admit. We are deeply concerned about you and your path towards the light and will do all we can to help you. Have no fear, seek only to know yourselves, and live in harmony with the ways of your planet Earth. We of the Ashtar Galactic Command thank you for your attention. We are now leaving the plane of your existence. May you be blessed by the supreme love and truth of the cosmos.

Press Coverage

  • UPI (2 Dec. 1977), "'Galactic' hoax startles viewers", Daily Collegian (University Park, PA): 18, 

    SOUTHAMPTON, England (UPI) — The mysterious "voice of Asteron" that delivered an "inter-galactic" message to startled television viewers last weekend was really a skilled earthling with a radio transmitter in the North Hampshire woods, a Southern Television spokesman said Thursday.

    "We haven't found him," the spokesman said. "But we know a hoaxer jammed our transmitter in the wilds of North Hampshire by taking another transmitter very close to it."

    Asteron interrupted Southern Television's Saturday night news broadcast in southern England with a warning for earthlings.

    "This is the voice of Asteron," the mysterious voice said. "You have only a short time to learn to live together in peace. All your weapons must be destroyed."

    The broadcast, which caused television sets to black out and normal sound to fade away, alarmed hundreds of viewers who jammed the station's switchboard with anxious calls.

    A station announcement assured the audience the broadcast had been a hoax and said it was investigating the incident in conjunction with the post office and Independent Broadcasting Authority, which owns and operates its transmitters.

    A spokesman for the Home Office said Thursday, "The investigation is finished. But we're still studying the implications of that investigation."

    The television spokesman explained there was little that could be done to trace the origin of the broadcast until it happened again.

    But, he stressed, "It's a most unusual occurrence. This is something that only someone with enough technical knowledge and equipment could attempt."

    An IBA engineer said television transmitters could be protected against such jamming incidents.

    IBA spokesman Torin Douglas said there "are no plans at present to make changes as a result of the broadcast last week.
