Aliens have been observing the Earth sporadically, and periodically, throughout mankind's history. These aliens have different origins, agendas, and
One day, an atomic explosion happens on Earth (the first test), sending some kind of wave through space-time, the medium they use for travel. It is
detected by many of these aliens. They go to investigate. Not knowing the exact effect done to space-time....some of them error and crash.
Since the explosion happened in the US, this is the area investigated, and thus, where some crash. The debris, and some aliens are then recovered by
the US government. After some initial flubs, a coverup program is instituted, and is the start of what would later become MJ12, the official US
government panel charged with dealing with this new phenomenon...
The debris is then disbursed, rather anonymously, throughout various government contractors who have the best shot at reverse engineering that
particular piece of debris... Night vision, propulsion, integrated circuits, nuclear, etc. Some is learned of the aliens themselves, through autopsy
of the dead, and interrogation of the living.
At some point, a meeting is established, due in part to the detainment of a being. and an exchange deal is worked out of some kind. In time (due to
spies within the US intelligence network), a couple other nations learn of the reality and also approach the EBEs.... At some point, we enabled some
kind of a stalemate. Though the alien agenda wasn't exactly hostile, it wasn't benign either. Agreements were made and broken, but at some point,
the threat of invasion (whether imminent, or just a threat) was countered enough to at least make it too costly to consider.
So, we're advancing our tech faster due to the intro of the alien tech, but it still takes time to integrate publicly and seamlessly. This is the
prime reason that military tech is often about 30 years ahead of public tech. The people using it are already security classified, and simply believe
it to solely be our own advancements. So, here we are now... While the details of the arrangements haven't fully come to light, is seems evident
that there is one, and that disclosure is a foregone conclusion, but just a matter of timing.
