A third possibility is that the aliens are all over the place, we just 
can't detect them. A combination of nanotechnology and uploading could 
mean civilisations simply shrink until they no longer have any 
detectable footprint from our POV. There would be several compelling 
reasons to do this, and it could even be an inevitable path for any 
advanced civilisations which don't destroy themselves.
