"Self-replicating robots could be the solution to making first contact with an alien civilization."

Perhaps I read/watch too much science fiction, but does anyone else see how this could go horribly, horribly wrong? If the robots don't gain sentience and rebel on their human oppressors, then the aliens they contact may very well destroy us all.

Of course, imagine hanging out in the afterlife with everyone else and having this conversation:

"So, how'd you die?"

"War."

"Heart attack."

"Cancer."

"Car accident."

"Overdose."

"Alien invasion."

Yeah, that'd be a pretty cool way to go.
