All the talk of new exoplanets has got me thinking. Unsurprisingly there are plenty of rocky lumps out there in the universe, of a similar nature to ours, many of which will probably contain some form of life.

Most sci-fi would have us believe that they will either share their amazing technology with us, use it to annihilate us or somewhere in between, but here's the thing that would scare (or disappoint) me the most: what if we're the most technologically advanced creatures yet to grace the universe with our presence?
