"Okay, time for the peace mission. Let's lock and load! This is for being indigenous!"

"Sometimes First Contact is last contact."
Captain Janeway, Star Trek: Voyager, "Waking Moments"

The discovery that they were not alone in the universe had brought the people of Earth together in a way that had never been possible before. Nations, tribes, creeds and religions were finally united in a mutual sense of xenophobic terror. Thanks to a constant stream of unimaginative sci-fi movies, everyone was convinced that aliens had nothing better to do than conquer planets and impregnate their women with carnivorous offspring.
Plan 7 of 9 from Outer Space

Graham: EBGB, how do you talk to aliens?
EBGB: EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! WHERE ARE THE ALIENS? WE WILL KILL THEM ALL!

Destination Moon created the great SF boom of the 1950s. It offered a single, wild leap of imagination that said the stars could be humanity’s for the taking. But despite the deluge of SF films that subsequently came almost none of them — excepting maybe Forbidden Planet (1956) — accepted the implicit challenge. Instead humanity’s attitude toward the stars contrarily became one that the sky was in imminent danger of falling on our heads, be it filled with alien invaders or atomic monsters.

"WE COME IN PEACE. [...] PRIORITY OVERRIDE. NEW BEHAVIOR DICTATED. MUST BREAK TARGET INTO COMPONENT MATERIALS."
Slylandro Probe, Star Control II

I make instant oatmeal and we turn on the TV. All the channels show the same images: tickheads at the new White House, at the U.N., everywhere. All the messages are the same: the war is over, and they’re sorry for the damage we did to ourselves. The tickheads—they call themselves something full of clicking noises—are sorry for the violence with which humanity responded to their visit, and sorry that they failed to anticipate the reaction. They promise to work with the Galactic Whole to repair the damage, and they’re sorry for the delays.

“I’m sorry too,” I say, trying to make a joke, but Trey doesn’t laugh.
Disarm, by Vylar Kaftan

"Now if anyone's thinking: Why those poor, helpless little folk, all naked and unarmed outside their crashed intergalatica winnebago. What kind of monster, could hear that heartbreak and go in just the same? I'm that dog! I'm that monster! These little mothers are as harmless as a fox in a henhouse! And I'm here to kick some ass!"
Colonel Curtis, Dreamcatcher
