I personally see this:
There are a handful of ancient races from early Milkyway or previous galaxies that have collided with us. (Don't forget, we're moving through one
of those galaxies right now, in our journey through the Milkyway! It isn't even done joining into the Big MW...technically we are in both right
now!).. at best, they know all about all the races.
If they were a super ancient, evil/malevolent race, then we would already be detected and dead/invaded by now. How can you be ancient and 'evil'?
Xenophobic. Realize this, some races might hate ALL other life BUT their own. Thus making them warlike without being self consuming... or if they are
advanced enough...just exterminating pests. This is the worse case scenario for ANY race trying to make contact...to meet these. I call these EP-ER
(Xenophobic Elder Races, even if they kill for fun, it is a form of xenophobia), and they are the worse nightmare...
If they are a super ancient, do-gooder race, then they will stay OUT of everyones way and "pull strings" behind the curtains. A race like this has
NO need for direct contact with ANY race. Thus, they can do as they please without answering to anyone. Their 'good' might not be accepted by the
mid-level races. Thus, they are on their own or in a secretive alliance of other like-minded races. You can not assume just because they are ancient /
advanced in this term, that they will come down and hug you whilst uploading schematics to your data matrix. I call this race type DG-ER (Do Good
Seeing as we are not dead or enslaved... then the 'evil elders' have not found us or do not exist (yet). In all possibility, the 'good elders'
have long been influencing us, leading us the right way. They will never directly 'land' or anything... why do that when you can do it 10x more
effectively by pulling strings and pressing buttons?
This leads us to the next 'level'. The "Empire / Republic" level. These are advanced but not ancient races that have vast star 'nations' or
'UN' style organizations across the galaxy. These nations would have no reason to NOT contact us. If they need resources, population, trading, etc.
then they can do so. If they're waiting for us to 'reach' a point... thats not logical. If you have a vast empire/UN/republic, why WAIT on a
planet? You don't even need to land. Just broadcast your presence, your supremacy, your intent, what ever. The planet at best can hurt you a little
bit... you think our nuclear or even advanced cutting edge 'stolen or invented' technologies SCARE a race capable of running a galaxy or near galaxy
wide organized force? Do you think they are afraid we might 'go war like' on them? WE ARE ONE PLANET. Even with what would be given to us, we are
nothing! Thus, I must conclude, unless there is something highly special about earth (some ancient super weapon), there would be no reason not to
contact us. If you think "oh well the population will freak out"... you are right. That wouldn't stop them. They have hundreds if not millions of
planets. This race is called a ST-UN, or Steady United Nations. They are the 'end means' of most races. If humanity does not end up killing itself,
we will probably end up like this. This sort of race will never be 'for the greater good of all' or 'kill kill kill' (unless XenoPhobic). Either
way, they still would have made contact. Don't you think it is BETTER for a race to land and make contact EARLY on to PREVENT issues? Or to wipe us
out while we are still weak?
Thus, I highly doubt this race is near our Star System. If it is, then the Elder race that MIGHT be influencing us, MIGHT be stopping them, through
Now we get to what is most likely around us. Considering all things. Since the previous still could be true, I can not say for fact... but if they
are 'older' than us, from empire sized to elder race type... then they would have come and done the deed already. We would know. Either they would
have come to ancient earth and did it or directly attack/contact us... or interfere out of sight which we will ignore from now on.
The most likely race, then, are the Neo-Nations. These are the nations that are the future like ours will someday be. Small space expansion (small
includes 2 or 3 hundred stars, or more...considering how many exist), with interstellar travel. Going to other stars is possible but a great task that
is not accomplished without need or technology (say, gates or stable rifts?). Thus, they would NOT come here unless we TOLD them we were here. Since
we are not to equal to them, but still have weapons capable of severe war... they would either wipe us out from afar or contact us. If we did NOT tell
them, they would probably do a massive, intense study of signals coming their way by chance. Then after, probably hundreds of years, they would
eventually make their way here (unless we are lucky and they are closer than 50 LY!)... political debates of a new planet, building of new ships to go
that far, planning routes, what ever they must do... then, if we are really lucky, they will show up to invite us or conquer us. They won't 'respect
and leave'. They just went out of their way and spent massive capital to come out to us. They will get what they want... These I call N-SN/C
Then, the least likely type we will actually have come to us unless they are A: direly close, B: have by chance advanced travel technology and not
much else, C: we go to them..., are Fledgling Space Civilizations. Races like us. Not to big, not to small. At least basic space exploration. These
guys are more likely to be friends. Since we have not had any major Elder or Empire races conquer us yet, odds are if there are any nearby space
faring life, then they are this type. They are in the same boat as us. They could become our best friends or our life long foes. They won't come to
us or us to them any time soon. At best, long distance talks. Though, as the cold war and fear of it has shown us... gaps in civil accord, lead to
amazingly fast technological break throughs. If we DO run into this kind of race first, we have the best chance at surviving. Its nearly equal.
Any races under this, don't even go to space...no need to mention. Though, its possible our signals might get to them by the time they can read
space signals~ no garuntees. By then we COULD be in space on our own...then they run into the situation we are in...depending on age. My 2 cents.
