Secretly a Raman

I don't know why everyone is saying he will be missed. After all, "the Ramans do everything in threes".

Engineers write defence against aliens manual

Simple is always best

If an advanced alien race really were worried about the neighbors getting uppity, they would probably use the tactics of Larry Niven's Pak Protectors: 1. Use a gravity generator (remember... they're advanced!) to create a sufficiently sized cosmological black hole. 2. Deliver said black hole via a small space probe to the opposite side of their annoying neighbor's sun so they'd never detect it and be able to do anything about it. 3. Drop it in and wait a few decades for their sun to begin to collapse and suddenly go nova.

Voila! No more problems with the neighbors.
