Well, it's been a good run, we might not have lasted long as the dominant species on the planet but hey, maybe the dolphins or octopi will last longer. Then again maybe we'll just replace the natural sky with air safety domes, replace the bees with swarm robots, replace the trees with algae farms, replace the growing food with replicators, replace travelling most places (like work or school) with tele-holograms, and solve whatever else needs replacing. And hey, if all else fails, we can insert junk DNA into the tardigrades to document our species' history; they will definitely survive. I mean, they'd probably survive the death of the sun and the destruction of the planet and just float dormant for millions of years on the asteroids that used to be earth until they landed on a new planet, then just shake the dust off and wander off to do whatever it is tardigrades do after a hard day.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for I have a sonic screwdriver, a tricorder, and a Type 2 phaser.
