The logistics of space travel really aren't that "Jacked" even with sub light speed. There is of course a lot of theories of how the speed of Light
can be bent if not broken (warping space, wormholes etc..). The fact that humans that are really just coming out of our caves can conceive of this
methods is proof enough in my book it may be possible given say a few thousands years of development.
All that stuff aside using sub light speed a alien race could colonize the entire Milky Way galaxy in as little as 50 million years and explore the
entire galaxy in a fraction of that time. Using large colony ships moving to nearby stars then stopping to build up infrastructure, population and
spreading to the next system. That's really just the blink of a eye on the cosmic timescale.
Then there is also the fact of Time dilation whereby time slows as speeds increase a craft going close to light speed say 90% LS (which the laws of
physics allow) you could travel thousands of Light years in a matter of weeks time for everybody aboard the ship. In theory if you pushed close
enough to LS you could cover the entire known universe in something like 27 years ship time.
I do think a majority of UFO sightings are infact secret military crafts but not 100%. Some move in ways that would create G levels in the thousands
of Gs. No earthly machine or organic lifeform could survive such forces without some type of inertia canceler if thats even possible. If it is its way
beyond human tech levels.
I also dont agree that humans have to be arrogant to consider themselves worthy of study by aliens. Any alien lifeform no matter how primitive would
be a amazing learning opportunity. Just about ever human scientist would love to study alien algae let alone a Alien civilization.
