Resource shortages and such vary by the planet here, and the race's compatibility with the planet they start on.  That can create all sorts of envy, etc, and thus aggression.  If ALL of the races landed on planets that they don't have good compatibility with (which is possible), then there would be just super-aggression all over the place.

One of the robotic races, the Acutians (these guys are kind of jerks), is able to build a "planet cracker."  They have to have a lot of engineers and a lot of time, plus an uncolonized moon to spare on their planet.  But when they are done, this launches their moon straight at another planet and... well, bye.

I would venture that is indeed a safe bet yes.

My favorite race has the planet cracker? Wow.

Oh yeah. :)

You can't personally blow up planets; your fleet is not that powerful.  However, it is possible for various races to decide to blow up a planet, and you can either try to stop them or let it happen, heh.

I wonder if the Acutians have a "The Solar System Is Actually A Giant Pool Table" political faction.

Been playing TOME4 recently and the thing that I really like about it that it has a ingame chat so people can
Link items and talk bout what is happening in their game. You can also see how they are progressing in the game and what achievements are earned. Maybe something like this can be implemented in TLF.
Just an idea.

Potentially at some point, we'll see!
