“The Deserter,” William Tenn, 1953 – An interpreter joins minds with Jovian deserter in order to learn his secrets, as the Jovians had once done to him many years ago when he was their prisoner. Initially vengeful, he finds that he has more in common with the peace-loving alien than the militaristic humans who wish to exploit it.
