That was perhaps the initial fear of a fiendish Spock, of Satan himself by some studio folks in the 60s, but I doubt that fear about aliens existed or still exist today.
From a dramatic perspective, it is more interesting to have only one or two aliens, because they always offer nice contrasts, like Spock or Worf and Data or Phlox.
After all, we have only a human perspective so the purpose of aliens is to show us somethign about ourselves.
