Thread to develop Sci-Fi moviescript -

What will the future of humankind be like when we learn to harness energy of stars and How would our future unravel ...
Do we develop spaceships powered by nuclear fusion powerstations and sunsails?
Will humans ever learn how to directly harness energy of stars and inertia of planets?
Are we ever going to develop cyborgs that produce organic computers that learn, self-develop and analyze information and produce code?
Do we merge synthetically with new civilizations when we meet other civilizations in other galaxies in the distant future?

What would the story be ... as an entertaining Sci-Fi movie ...

We already can harness the energy of stars - solar power.
As we can with planets - geothermal energy.

Re: aliens
Do you think we will understand them when we meet them? If lion could speak, we would not understand him. If they are totally alien, we would not even realize their sapience, if it exceeds ours. In the best case we will see/imagine them as reflections of ourselves, as in Lem's Solaris (excellent book btw).
