What if the first contact has already been made? In the unindentified they kept saying that these things has been happening for a long time, therefore, it is possible that they've already made contact, and it's not anything like what we writers has been dreaming. Somehow, I also keep thinking about the ST's prime directive, and why there has not been an invasion, and I always come back the same point in the circle, the conclusion that in some level we have already made the connection, and now it seems that the unknown is forcing the Authorities to reveal their hand.Or first contact is made by organized crime with a lot to offer and one rule, don't bite the hand that feeds you.
This doesn't change my conclusion that benevolent aliens might be an additional cause of international conflict. Every nation will want a piece of the action, and they are unlikely to wait patiently in line for any technological goodies the ETs might bestow upon us.I'd like you to watch this and then make the same conclusion.
