when we start to space travel.. you can bet we will have weapons on board to kill anything that endangers our ability to get back... who knows what any other species is capable of.. ??? you dont.. thats for sure..
We need to understand that no advanced star traveling beings are evil, violent, and here to kill anyone. That is what we as humans do. This is our mentality. A seed was planted into our subconscious that beings from distant star systems are to be feared, this has been propagated for long enough now.
Sure some beings are violent killers, greedy, and only care about themselves. This is why these life forms are not star travelers.
Similarly to earth, the galaxy / universe has a system of governance incredibly more advanced and complex in ways we cannot fathom. It is based on love, kindness, and compassion for all life.

I would prefer exploring, discovering new life, new tech, new everything really. We know very little about the universe and who inhabits.

Well I just got a picture in my head concerning our planet. First I thought about the fact that we're rich in resources and quite noticeable from space. To anyone looking for ideal coordinates from a mature life giving star like ours, this planet is a jewel. Of course its been mapped for eons by all advanced races! Additionally, we are always in political nightmares because there must be a holographic billboard with our names on it, up there in the cosmos.
A giant sheep marks the way!
