I'm assuming the aliens would view humans as just another species, not special in any way. They'd have no concern about individual humans. They'd just want to preserve the species. We control deer populations by issuing hunting licenses. We want to preserve the species, but most people have no concern for the individual deer that get slaughtered to control the numbers for the "good" of the population. I expect that space aliens would (at best) view us as we view deer.Huh, well I guess we're all making assumptions so yours isn't any less or more valid, but if we are anywhere near a singularity and biological enhancement with computing power we are about to evolve into a space faring species in the next century. I would assume most space faring aliens have gone through a similar transformation with technology and would recognize the difference between humans and deer.
Now if they're not benevolent we may be seen as competition and dangerous and that might be the end of us...
Of course it's all speculation, because we only know of one planet with life so far, and only one species that has developed technological civilizations. It's no secret that I hold the opinion that humans will never get beyond our solar system (distances and costs are too great) and that space aliens will never come here (same reasons).
I've also made no secret of the fact that I regard the human race as analogous to a cancer within the "organism" of the biosphere, and that our survival will depend, in part, on limiting our numbers. I suspect that even our present numbers may be beyond the long-term carrying capacity of the planet, but this is a suspicion, not a firm opinion.
I would also love to meet a space alien, in much the same way that I'd love to see a mountain lion while hiking: It seems like it would be really cool, but would probably be very dangerous and possibly fatal.
