I can't help but wonder, if it would be wrong to do there, would it not be wrong to do on our own planet also?
by colonizing another world, we would be inserting ourselves into their biosphere regardless of weather we eat their critters or not and there's been
many a science fiction show where explorers and settlers of new world have run into sentient lifeforms without recognizing them for what they are. to
me, it is better to assume that every habitable planet is habited! by asking the question your are, I believe you are acknowledging the fact that we
are really into the wrong by inserting ourselves into this world to begin with, unless invited to do so.
but, I am kind of made with different beliefs than most. I believe that the basics of "intelligent life", what is needed for it to come into being is
present in every significant sized rock in the universe. that those basic building blocks are capable of forming a lifeform that is perfectly capable
of surviving on those rocks, although they just might not be in a form that we recognize, and that the it is the natural order of things for those
lifeforms to develop into an intelligent form... although again, not necessarily something that we would recognize as such. so I assume that all the
planets are already "owned" by somebody...
