Humm, if the technology what would be out there would be used in military hell no, I would do anything in my power to stop the encounter. Human race is funny, even we call ourselves civilized we are the most warlike speacies on earth, maybe in universe. People have made great inventions but in the end they are used in bad. Lets just think about nuclear bombs - I bet that if the guy who made his remarkable discovery and put science forward would've known where his discovery would've lead he would've destroy all the evidence of the found. That is what I would've done. And even though you can use the knowledge of that to produce energy almost without any costs like pollution, no, goverments want to make nuclear war heads for the sake of defending their homeland - which actually is just piece of land no one can own. All the religions, civilisations, communities born, live and die in the end cos of impossibility of humans of living with each other in peace. There's no need of alien race to wipe us all out 'cos we do fine job by ourselves, and the nature and life will pay for our stupidness.
But if the technology would be used in good, lets say curing deseaces and making people living happier lives yes, then that operation would get my blessing. But on the other hand Earth is overpopulated so I would want a speacies like predators, to hunt down people with moral. Or aliens, parasites belongs to the same category of keeping population in the limits of bearing capacity of surroundings. But hey, I'm just a biologist and I think the predation as a good thing, natural, not evil and bad. In the end it would be good to the human speacies and we wouldn't go so fast towards our distruction. It's said that if every man on earth would live like us in developed countries we would need 3 planet Earth to cover the losses of the material we spend.
But geesh, most of the people in here are kids so I'm not even sure if you guys can understand my way of thinking lol Sure, it would be cool to know and see there's life outside Earth but the fact is people should start to think what they want us to be.
