Xenology: zee-no-lo-ji (noun): The study of extraterrestrial life.

Despite the word's similarity to Xenu, the name given to an extraterrestrial tyrant who wishes to enslave humanity according to L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Scientology, the word comes from the Greek: xenos means a foreigner or outsider and λογος (logos) meaning reasoning or explanation.

"I receive a number of proposals for books from those with an interest in xenology, but unfortunately we do not publish in that arena."
