Therefore, the remaining peaceful alien races would make it into space (unless the alien race is a hive-mind of sorts, then we're screwed, but hive-minded species aren't exactly the brightest, so they wouldn't be able to develop interstellar flight anyways) and make contact with others.
Indeed the only race of space faring creatures that would attack other creatures because of their war-like civilization (or just for the heck of it. we've been know to commit species wide genocide before) would be humans. What do you think of that.
