Question about Exolife

"As Jodi Foster says in Contact, "If there isn’t life on other worlds, it seems like an awful waste of space." "

Hm.  I wonder if we would be comforted to discover that all those seemingly empty stars are filled with the aliens from ALIEN, predators from PREDATOR, Azathoth, Cthulhu, Skrulls, Klingons, Space Vampires, Rulls, Xeelee, Wormfaces, Scramblers, not to mention Eddoreans, Fenachrone, Overlords of Delgon, and the Dark Lords of Sith, or some other outerspace equivalent of beetle? 

There are some downsides to First Contact, or, as the Greatest Empire prefers to call it, First Conquest.

On the other hand, all that empty space means more room for us among the mansion of heaven, once Richard Seaton discovers safe total conversion of atomic to kinetic energy, and a superscientist named Bergenholm together with Andrew Jackson ‘Slipstick’ Libby and Zefram Cochrane and a motherbox invent the inertialess lightpressure hyperspatial warp boomtube star-drive.
