You're an interesting species. An interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams, and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable, is each other.
The truth could be very close to the situation presented by Sagan.
It could be that the elements for life are abundant, and some more advances civilizations travel around creating life and watch it develop from behind the scenes. Eventually becoming friends with their own creations, who then become fellow creators. We are already taking steps in this direction ourselves with plans to eventually teraform Mars.
I am interested in what it would be like for such a species in regards to their life span. Say if they don't fold space, but somehow move faster than light. Would they not be immortal from our perspective?
I mean they leave here and zip off to another corner of the galaxy, do some work and come back here and a few hundred years have passed. Yet here's that same dude, only having aged as long as he was on that other world.
Such a species would probably not even have a home world anymore, and for all intents and purposes would be a species of time travelers.

As far as nuclear bomb go, I doubt it affects other dimensions on such a scale.

I've also heard someplace, sometime, that liquid water is rare in the universe and that maybe the visitors want some of that. There isn't much talk about USO's but the phenomena is worth looking into, methinks.
