6 Understanding Check What might hostile aliens do to us? Enslave us, perform autopsies, you name it. Harvest the planet for goods. Challenge us to an interstellar war the possibilities are endless.

8 How would they even get to us? The most popular theory is that of wormholes. Time and space is thought to be a fabric, now to travel over long distances if one were to bend the fabric of space-time they would be able to get anywhere instantly.

Another theory of harnessing energy for travel is using dark energy or dark matter that is found all throughout the cosmos within the gaps of outer space.
