  1. The “prime directive” is really just an excuse to try to “explain” the lack of aliens walking our streets. There is little reason to think we or they would pay any attention to it when there is such an encounter. There will be good reason for caution, but there will be massive gains from interaction whether to aid them or rob them and avoiding interference will not be an option.

    • Well, some of the assumption is that many aliens might have similar values to us if they last long enough to get to interstellar travel. After all, if your species doesn’t care enough about preserving and avoiding interference with your own homeworld’s life, you will selfishly destroy your biosphere before you can escape the planet. Humans are probably pretty close to that line, honestly.
