Anything is possible however the question I would ask would be why ? A true space fairing race (think Star Trek or Star Wars) would be like living in the garden of Eden.
If you need resources pick an asteroid to mine, you need water pick a comet, what would be the purpose of fighting and conquering when everything is free for the taking ?
Slaves to much trouble....
food source not much meat on these bones and I have been told we would taste like pork.. I would be willing to bet there are plenty of planets without sentient life to get in the way of some master race's plans of world domination....
There are always problems in any group but if I had to guess any race of space fairing beings has probably grounded all the trouble makers and has some stern rules against going against the flow or imperial directive...
Looking at our own planet...I have to consider that highly advanced civilizations exist whose aim is to conquer others.
This is actually a MUCH more likely scenario than assuming that alien civilizations are "new age hippies" where everything is peace and happiness.
I am always saying, we try to "contact" others with SETI, sending signals to space or putting information on probes revealing our existence and location...but I think this is naive. We cannot know about the consequences.
