Yes, it's an assumption, but I still think it's a sound one. We are not just talking about a minor improvement in like aviation. I consider
interstelar travels a major breakthorugh, because it involves more than just being "speedy": material science (so the crafts can withstand
acceleration, radiation,...), energy, propulsion, computational, even biology (depending how ET bodies are naturally adapted to space travels),
So even if they were 100% pacifists, I'd still assume they have technology to defend against us, given all they had to go through to be
