What if another species had “help” and were just outright given the tech to travel the stars?
This would be like aliens landing in 1850, giving us tech and then sticking around to show us how to use it/keep it up to date. We wouldn’t need to figure anything out - it’s all done for us. Or said another way at, Flying around in the space craft would be like most people driving a car today - people use the car but most have no idea how it actually works/couldn’t fix it/can’t explain it.
So yeah - there are multiple ways that a space faring civilization could be all-in less intelligent than us.
But, I find that to be unlikely/improbable however.
