    What mineral?


    Do they ever say what mineral they're after?


    They say they need to collect something for their home planet, and vaguely say they need a mineral.


    Is this ever explained?

    They said they require water and a mineral common and abundant on Earth in exchange of their knowledge and technological advances, but they never said which mineral that was. Later on, Anna said that they come from somewhere with big cities and massive oceans, pretty similar to Earth but just not divided into countries. If they have massive oceans and technology, what do they need our water for? They are clearly lying about it of course.

    Actually - they require the "common mineral" and water for their ships, I'm assuming. However, I'd say you're right, that it's likely to just be an alibi.
