You almost had me until you got to the teenage alien part, then it's all BS. Listen, the most logical reason for the SEMIsecrecy aka crop-circles and
not all-out-landing-party in down town London, or UFO "sitings" instead of blatant "Take us to your leader." arrivals; is because they are smart
enough to realize the implications of definitive arrival. If they showed up in giant mother-ships at the large cities around the world, and just
hung-around until the news could not deny it, THERE WOULD BE CHAOS. Not only would there be a run on the grocery stores, but HUNDREDS WOULD DIE FROM
Ignorant fearful people under the false impressions of poor religious understanding (& extremists) who in one way or another can not cope with the new
reality "Kill the devil & it's daemons!" "Kill yourselves it's better than living though the tribulation!".
Looting in the streets which starts as preparations for invasion but continues as rapists in anarchy,
The sheer number of people firing guns into the sky would have to number in the thousands over the course of just the first couple of weeks which can
and does lead to random bullet deaths of innocents.
Just general fear and hysteria induced deaths by heart attacks.
NOW YES, INTER PLANETARY CONTACT IS IMPORTANT. BUT, any rational species would prefer it to be under conditions of PEACE and JOY! IT SHOULD BE A
CELEBRATION, NOT CHAOS.
The alien-people in charge of an interplanetary effort, are not as thoughtless as your average neighborhood American going though life trying to
please one whimsical desire after another with out caring about how it effects other people (EG: spousal cheating, not telling people your having sex
with that you have STDs, stealing it because you want it and nobody is looking), they aren't just going to force a plantar disclosure of their
presence on us all at once because they know that it can and WOULD wind up getting many people hurt.
Not just physically, they may even being going as far as to recognize the fragile nature of many people psyches.
FACE IT -- YOUR SPECIES JUST CAN'T HANDLE IT right now. Perhaps, after 3-5 hundred years of random minor sightings, subtle alien communications [aka
crop-circles, telepathic contact, harmless "abductions"],
discovery of single celled life outside of earth
(source paper "proof"
), and people preaching to each other
the reality of an alien presence, perhaps then your species will be able to handle open arrival with some grace and tolerance. (or maybe it'll be 30
years, whoo knows)
