True. I'm explaining Ed's likely reasons for what he did, not what he could or should have done. He could have
run away from Teleya as soon as she was asleep and gone to find the other aliens, in hope that they would treat him well. Whether or not that's what he should have done depends on a lot of factors, including being able to survive on the planet alone until he could surrender.
