Show of hands - Who believes in aliens and that disclosure might be close?

This is a recent announcement by Tom DeLonge that has me thinking:

I have no problem believing in intelligent life elsewhere. It's the notion that they'd introduce themselves knowing how messed up we are that gets me. If I were going door to door in the search for extraterrestrial life and heard this kind of ruckus through the open windows, I sure as hell wouldn't knock.

Definitely believe it.
If governments out there do know the truth, I don't think disclosing it is the best idea unless there's an actual benefit from it. I imagine it'd cause more problems than it would fix.

I do believe in Aliens, and not just because i like trek. In a universe as vast as our own it would be arrogant of us as a spices to believe we are the only “intelligent” life in it.
As far as disclosure I don’t think that is going to happen.

Yup. It could be disclosed and people wouldn't believe it. Even Trekkies have grown that skeptical.

I love how no one posted in this for a day, and now almost all of us regulars have come in and basically acknowledged that yes, we follow it! haha
If you want to dig into the topic for yourself, I'd suggest these avenues of approach:
Nick Cook (read up on who he is, what he was, and the topics he's covered). I especially recommend his book, 'The Hunt for Zero Point'.
George Knapp. He's the Las Vegas reporter who broke the infamous Bob Lazar story back in the late 80's. The things he's covered are absolutely fascinating, such as the ranch owned by Robert Bigelow, which leads me to...
Robert Bigelow. Search what he's been up to, and what he has interests in.
Steven Greer is someone I watch purely to give me a good laugh to be honest (I love the topic so much, that even the charlatans/batshit voices are highly entertaining). The only reason I mention him here, is that some of the people he brought forward in 2001's Disclosure Project press conference are fantastic - others are...not. lol
As for Tom DeLonge, well I'm intrigued by his announcement (purely due to the people he's had contact with as seen in the leaked Podesta emails, and at the press conference the other day), but I'd like to hear and see more, first. His idea of making films/tv shows out of some of the stories in this 'area' are very welcome, as even the most unbelievable/ridiculous tales would make for some great sci-fi viewing (the last season of the X-Files dipped its toe in these waters a little bit).
So yeah, I love the topic, have followed it intensely since I was very young (over twenty-five years now), and my overall conclusion is that it's HIGHLY entertaining!
EDIT: Just one last thing, but to reap the rewards from following this topic (and I know this is something I don't have to explain here by the looks of it), go in with an open-but-sceptical mind. Basically, don't write it off as easily as some people do, but don't fall victim to some of the utter nonsense around this topic. Whilst I'll staunchly defend the entertainment value of the latter, it really does do great harm to this subject at the same time, and no one fits that category more than Steven Greer. Granted, he's done some really good things such as bringing a lot of credible voices out of the shadows, but he's also done a lot of really damaging things; the first one that comes to mind was him posting an out-of-focus picture of a moth on his website (taken on a really dark night with a huge camera flash), and claiming that it was a 'Light Being'.
So aye, just a word of advice from someone who loves the topic, and has been into it for decades.

I'd imagine an episode like that couldn't take place after the Prime Directive is in place.
Our best bet for that would have been during Enterprise, and POSSIBLY Discovery.

But this sounds like a top secret aircraft used by people here on Earth. To those that have never seen it before they may believe it to be an extraterrestrial craft operated by aliens but it is just a top secret Earth aircraft. How many people may have become completely convinced of aliens because if an encounter like yours that wasn't even an alien craft?
Sorry, in that big long paragraph I failed to leave out the whole point. The only real proof for most of our kind, is witnessing such things for ourselves. Then and only then can we come to our own conclusion.

I'm not saying that all people that believe in aliens are crackpots,I'm saying you have to be careful and research things before you put stock in it.
