From the standpoint of the Borg --- Ahem, er, whatever these superspecies are, what we've done to the planet may be zip compared to what they're able to do. What if they had a technology that could tap the energy at the earth's core? Or better --- politicians' hot air???? :mrgreen: :ek:JR said:We're busily eating up the planet's resources ourselves. That, alone, would make an alien invasion less than fruitful. Actually, if these super ship exist, they could raid empty planets for huge stores of resources. Then again, a civilization capable of crossing such immense distances will probably have science capable of producing energy, and product, out of virtually nothing.
I wonder why that would save us? They may just want to suck energy from planets irregardless of what life is on the planet ...or if the planet is barren. I mean, they might come here to tap our planet's core and not understanding that we are a life form, punch their energysucking drills through New York City ... or better, Washington D.C. (I think they might get more out of D.C. ..... but I digress :twisted: )JR said:With this many galaxies, why would anyone bother with inhabited planets capable of intelligence. The bigger problem, as I see it, would be that the advanced civilizations might be so alien that they wouldn't recognize us as alive, much less intelligent. Silicone-based life-forms wouldn't necessarily understand us, at all.
