A fleet of one billion craft that are so far beyond anything on Earth as to make us seem like cavemen?
Well, first I'd bring the world under one government (MY government) and begin distributing resources to third world countries. Then I'd slowly do away with religion as it causes too much hostility.
After creating a utopian society, I'd allow the craft to be reverse engineered and then I'd order the newly formed United Terran Empire to move out into space and colonise any planets that are uninhabited, and make contact with any other races out there.

A billion flying saucers is total overkill. ... I guess we can take those billion aircraft and just fly around looking for a planet to take over. You don't have one billion flying saucers if peace is on your mind. You definently kick some ass...you become the Invaders!

You stipulated that it would be Earth? humans in charge of such a fleet. How does the sudden control of such a fleet help anyone with the knowledge to carry out the required functions necessary?
Or did I miss that in your colossal posts haha..
Firstly, you would probably split the planet opinion wise because that's how we are, we will split in opinions, divide and conquer. This means that those who chose the "deck" way would somewhat always be in conflict with those that insists it is the work of the devil or some other such programmed mental manifestation.
If you go to another planet, wouldn't it already be populated? If not, how do you get it terraformed, where does this knowledge come from?
Don't you think it would be abused if it were left to humans? Not all choices will be made with a pure heart.
...WHY you ask your question?
oh, and why humans to do this? Did we clarify Earth humans?
...the first thing I would do ...would be to telepathically communicate to every man, woman and child living on this planet via a common dream of unprecedented change showing what our world would be like without war, without hunger, without plagues and disease, without poverty, without pollution, without global nuclear arsenals, without catastrophic weather events and etc... In other words, this mass dream experienced by everyone on earth on the same night, would be showing a world so vastly different from our own where hate and war has been replaced with love and peace.
This mass dream would be a miracle in itself where everyone would be telling others about their dream only to discover that everybody else had the same exact dream also! Then it would be very apparent that something really big is coming up and whatever it is -- it's something VERY GOOD.
Then about 3 days later, I would send all of my fleets to Africa, South America, Indonesia and every third world country on the planet and distribute food, clothing, medicines, lumber, and all of the materials those nations would need to yank them from the depths of poverty, hunger, homelessness and disease.
I would also send a good number of my fleets to all of those area's of the world where war is currently in progress where I would disable all weapons using those technologies I have available to do that and then I would intervene directly by transporting all terrorists to the planet Pluto for deprogamming and rehabilitation.
I would also be transporting all troops back to their homeland via flying saucers.
Then I would be distributing those same materials to all of those humans who live in those war torn nations that I had already distributed out to all third world country's so that they may begin the process of rebuilding their nations.
I do think that it's very important to work directly with all religious leaders so as not cause major panic among the masses and make it very clear that we have no intention of interfering with any one's religious belief system.
Everyone is free to believe in what they want but if those beliefs infringe upon the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of any other group or population outside of their own...
, those religious entities who are responsible for that will be given warnings in no uncertain terms that they are to discontinue those practices immediately.
I think I would flatten the place (Earth that is) cos its not redeemable while the evil that is man is still the, the place is just full of people who are full of themselves like me.

I have to agree - this planet and the twisted machinations of our governments, extreme poverty, cruelty, hoarding of wealth and resources leaves a lot to be desired. But could that be changed with the introduction of a show of force, and free energy?
First thing id do is show the people of the planet so that the goverments of the world could not put some spin on the subject and try and hide the fact that there are 1 billion craft knocking about.
Then id remove all commercial aircraft and replace them with space craft therefore cutting down on harmful emmisions to the planet. Also massively cutting down on travel times. This would have to be a free service to all people of the world.
Emergency services worldwide would also benefit from one of my craft each hopefully saving more lives
I would also have one of these machine reverse engineered to see if the energy system could be replicated on a larger scale and if so they would be used to support power stations therefore cutting out the need for fossil fuels and nuclear reactors.
A few dozen would be stationed in Orbit with the capability to shoot down warheads should any rogue country decide to nuke another.
The remaining vehicles i had left i would use for space trips for the people totally free of course and obviously a few would be stored away in case we need them in the future.
This would definitely give Bush and Blair egg on their faces it would be like "Try and cover this up you feckers"
On my retirement i would jump in a craft and cruise the galaxy or beyond

Something different than has been said.
Thank you for your post!
I worry that the revelation of the existence of a way off of this planet would put the populace into a serious 'rental car' mode; where even the slightest bit of concern for the immediate environment is tossed out the window with the beer cans and McDonalds wrappers
The power of a billion spacecraft within my control? I'd zap a couple thousand random fools and when their ash finally settles to the ground, I'd broadcast a single message over my really tremendous loudspeakers, "Shut up and start picking up trash...fools."
