interstellar neighbors

I'm sure by now everyone's heard about the Earth-size planet that's been discovered, only 20 light years away, within the habitable range of its sun. Like everyone else who's ever read sci-fi, I was thrilled by the discovery.
Unfortunately, I've learned that closer surveillance has revealed that the planet is only partially habitable, and already has been colonized by humans from the twelve lost colonies of man. Worse, even now they are engaged in a bitter and protracted war with Cylons.

It's best if we keep our distance.
