S+F for a thought provoking scenario
I think this could be possible, seeing as how our own civilization has developed, but it raises questions then with any other civilizations in the
area and how they would/could interact.
A civilization dedicated to military efforts may look different than we might assume. Perhaps they would be focused on psychological warfare against
lower civilizations that are easily manipulated, rather than the physical invasion/decimation tactic we have seen in movies? This could allow them to
become engrained into systems across the galaxies with a much smaller force than a physical invasion would require. As such, their visible technology
may appear similar in nature to an equally developed peaceful civilization while their morals and directives would have ulterior motives, displaying a
difference in usage rather than a difference in development.
If the laws we observe are, indeed, universal, then one can easily assume that, given enough time for advancement, any civilization is capable of
creating the same fundamental technologies to attain the same results; the difference would then be in how they are used, and not how they are made.
This kind of behaviour is evident today and seen in the control and suppression of certain technologies.
I would surmise that most highly evolved civilizations would have denounced war and violence in an effort to sustain their kind equally and ensure the
continued propagation of their species across the cosmos. This begs the question then, how do those levels of higher evolved beings interact? One
would hope that the benevolent would outweigh the malevolent, (assuming that the physical-violent militaristic civ's would eventually destroy
themselves and therefor be fewer in numbers) and as such would have devised ways to peacefully keep these negative beings at bay while not only still
advancing their own kind, but also protecting those who can not yet defend themselves, or who may not even know they are in danger.
I think that any militaristic civilizations our there would likely be kept at bay by a council or union of peaceful systems/civilizations, with
involvements limited to diplomatic relations, regulations and treaties.
