I'd go with number 2 because first of all, I wouldn't travel hundreds/thousands of light years just to see a primitive and greedy race of humans squabble over world resources, politics, skin colour, religion who really have nothing to offer and would probably attack even a friendly visitor from outer space...
To keep us from going to space and causing Univeral War 1. I mean come on our primitive minds would most likely want to shoot down anything that wasn't human. Or take over planets that are meant to be left alone. We don't live in harmony with our own planet. How can we live in harmony with the universe?
If I was an alien that came across us I'd keep close watch and make sure we don't conquor space until we are ready.
