What would aliens think of us?

A lot of scifi explores how humans will react to the rest of the universe. But just as fascinating is considering how the universe will react to us. Alan Dean Foster’s A Call To Arms suggested that aliens might use our adaptability and aggression, recruiting us to fight their wars. In the TV show Babylon 5 we were treated as a curiosity, a slightly backwards race that couldn’t stop meddling in things beyond its abilities. The way a writer portrays those reactions says as much about how they view humanity as how they view the rest of the universe.

If you’ve got five minutes, stop and watch this entertaining video, another example of how the aliens might react. A public service warning against the dangers of humanity.
