Even if its one in a trillion... with the vastness of space and the huge lengths of time it is likely that life has developed elsewhere. Now it may not be intelligent or it may blow itself up. We still have to remember though, that even if the universe is packed with intelligent life... there is still only one earth and only one human race. We are unique and very special.

Well said, I sometimes have to remind myself that Trek is not a looking glass into our future, but a looking glass into our imagination. If we are to solve the problems associated with quantum physics in this or the next century (which I highly doubt) we may discover we don't need ships to travel where we want to go. There may not be all these lifeforms out there and we may find our theories just as ridiculous as how we once thought earth was flat.

Yeah, I tend to overlook that one on the grounds that as our civilization has advanced, we have tended to become more and more curious. This is pure speculation on my part, but I have to think that mentalities capable of solving interstellar engineering problems could only get that way by being intensely inquisitive. Therefore inquisitiveness and interstellar flight capability are likely to be correlated.

Therefore it is logical that I go camp out in my lawn tonight, 'cause they are gonna be here any minute now...
