I'm going out on a limb and saying:
1) Fermi's paradox doesn't require FTL travel; just requires millions of years to colonize a galaxy
2) UFOs present some evidence that we have indeed been visited
Since recent evidence (*) hints life coudl have existed billions of years ago and most of the stars in our galaxy are old then I think it's very
plausible we have been visited. This doesn't require FTL travel. If you research Fermi's Paradox you'll see that even with nuclear propulsion we could
colonize the galaxy. The best way to do it would be to send out self-replicating machines.
Recently developments with neuro-synaptic chips and chips that can be implanted into the brain and various research hints to me that humans will not
be bound to bodies in the future.
Brains on a chip. Synthetic brains. That's what the future could be. But who knows. Maybe we will be transplanting brains or something. Maybe using
* - here's a link about the potential that life could have existed billions of years ago:

There's really so, so much. I think ET has visited. Highly likely, imho.
The only problem, of course, is why don't we know? That's the can of worms. I can't say for sure that what I say here is true. Maybe I'm crazy. It's
just what I feel in my gut.
I just have heard too many people say "I saw such and such and it..."
Too hard to tell myself they're all crazy or liars or disordered or mistaken or, but...
I do think that if ET has visited and the truth of this is being buried that we will eventually find out anyway. But there's a possibility I'm just
wrong. Perhaps hallucinations and hysteria and mental disorders and all these other problems we face have turned us away from the truth that we're
alone. It's really a stretch of hte imagination that we're alone. Hundreds of billions of stars in our galaxy. Hundreds of billions of rogue planets.
Billions of earth-like planets. Many more moons and asteroids and comets and planets and dwarf planets and so on. Giant gas clouds. Billions of years
of expanding and exploding stars. So many goldilocks zone potentials in that time. There's so, so much.
Still, there's the possibility we're alone. Can't rule it out. Just seems contentious.
Maybe Seti will find ET but it'll turn out the UFOs are all hallucinations/lies/etc. Or maybe NASA will find something. But what if we never find
anything???? Would be kinda lonely.
