I think its amazingly vain to believe that we are the only planet in all of space that supports allegedly intelligent life. I guess the only thing scary about the thought of not being the only one is considering whether those other beings are as barbaric and warmongering as we are.

If they are, and have superior technology to ours (just being able to reach us while we have not located them would make it seem their technology would be more advanced), THAT would be the scary part, but what would we have that they could not gain closer to their own world?

In other words, what would make us worth the trouble? LOL!

It's pretty hard to imagine that with the billions of stars and planets that ours is the only planet capable of supporting life. I do believe that if a planet CAN support some form of life than it WILL. But with the vastness of unending time and the eye-blink of that in which humans have existed, it's doubtful that our civilization and another will coincide in time and within the distance travelable in our individual lifetimes to actually be able to interact. So I think it's probable that there are other intelligent life forms somewhere in space and time, but very unlikely that we will ever meet them.
