ok, i get your point, but here's mine
1, Peaceful Aliens
If the aliens came down and said we are peaceful, explorers or whatever, and gave technology, why hasnt the governments of this world, at least let us
know they are here? Easy answer is to say theres intelligent life out there, we been dealing with them for 50 years, they are up in space and we want
you to get used to it. Like anything, eventually people would get used to it
2, Moderate aliens
If moderate they could general justify themselves for just taking what they want, but could do diplomacy for "cultural" exchanges.
3, Evil Aliens(for want of a better term)
If evil, they would have no problem, just taking us out from space and then taking whatever they want.
OK, in perspective, if we just work on a basis that they are 60 years more advanced than us(although to have gotton all the way to our earth they have
probably got to be quite alot more) They are still going to be far in advance of us. Just look at our technology of 60 years ago and then compare
that to todays tech.
A stealth bomber flying over 1940's america/europe/wherever could probably more or less attack at random, with no fear of ever being hit by
And thats just 60 years of growth. To have got here in less than 60 years means they must be able to travel FTL or bend space, or construct
wormholes. All of witch would require a power source we could not hope to create at our stage of tech.
Then again, i will admit to the fact that a race so superior to ours would probably come in peace, as probably only a peaceful race would survive
it's own evolution to adavnce enough to get past destroying themselves.
Well i think i've gone on far too long and probably not made much sense
