"Wipe out the possible rivals".. Well don't think for a second that there are not thousands of civilizations watching us, waiting for us to think
about doing that very same thing.. to wipe us out in the blink of an eye and intervene.

encase said world in perfect shielding (hint, hint) as to prevent said inhabitants, of said world, from actually ever exploring space because the
convenient shield of radiation actually prevents them from doing so. Even so much as to possibly prevent live birth in outer space, due to lack of
shielding from the radiation.
How convenient. Perhaps by the time we figure out a way to explore space, without a hitch, abandoning petty squabbles with each other.. we could
probably figure out how to colonize other worlds, and reproduce in space. By then, we'd be beyond "destroying possible rivals". There wouldn't be
any "Space Nixons" in that future, folks.
