What concerns me is if they decide humans are too much of a bother- they've messed up the planet, so why not just get rid of them.Aliens have superior technology and knowledge, if they discovered Earth as we have discovered many distant places within Earth and consider them exotic and worth keeping, wouldn't it be cool if maybe one or two Aliens decided to drop advanced technology to help conservation of the planet?
IIRC there was a discussion about this on Doctor Who, I think the Peter Davison episode with the Cybermen.I can see the appeal to being emotionless.
You can never get your 'feelings' hurt if you possess no emotions.
But... What about the humans who attempt to keep it? Their knowledge and expertise is invaluable, achieving the dexterity and talent for understanding and keeping this world species might be annoying and distract them for more important things like... Like watching stars! :3What concerns me is if they decide humans are too much of a bother- they've messed up the planet, so why not just get rid of them.
On the thought of aliens coming here, it seems to me that they would be interested in commercial use of the resources, so helping the humans to advance technologically wouldn't be in their best interests.
edited to add: I remember reading a sci fi story where the aliens did give the humans bits of technology, in order to bring the humans up to a level where they would be worth killing.
