The Fermi paradox asks: if aliens have existed since the universe began where are they now? There was an early alien species that sent probes to possibly habitable worlds which lodge themselves under the crust of the planet, self-replicate, and sleep. If the surface develops intelligent life, when they begin to generate a certain quantity of radio waves the sleepers awaken and take over the surface, where they send out more probes.
