I wonder. Will there ever actually be a Galactic Empire?

If the full AK-47 ammo drum of potential extinction-level events is unloaded and every round misses humanity - absolutely.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you'll be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privelege of owning yourself" - Rudyard Kipling

Earth is already a game preserve in a vast Gallactic Empire.

The Grey guys in saucers are like the Park Rangers. They abduct folks and implant devices for the same reason we tag birds and fish. To keep track of us humans, and our migration patterns, and so on, so they "tag" individual humans and then release them back into the wild. And then follow up by recapturing them.

Earth almost got flattened so they could build a Walmart in its place. But the galactic equivalent of Walmart got put out of business by their equivalent of Amazon. So our nature preserve got...preserved! Whew!
