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.
