Is there any science fiction story that explores the legal and diplomatic aspects of alien invasion?
Not specifically about alien invasion, but about politics and diplomacy with alien species:Patty Jansen's Ambassador series.The legal and diplomatic aspects aren't explored in depth, but they are a key feature of the stories. It is as close as to what you're
Science fiction is fiction that examines the effects science and technology might have on the human condition and experience. It often extrapolates a future state of science and technology, to do that.Setting a story in space or on another planet does not necessarily make that story science fiction. Nor is space a requirement

I am gonna give you a brief of all the good Sci-fi movies that I have watched.InterstellarI keep this one at the top of my list. It's a great movie to watch if you are interested in things like black holes or time travel because everything in this movie is related to these core concepts.Fun fact:
It's easier to sympathize with someone that looks like you. Hence, movies such as what you're describing take the easy way out by making the humans look better in comparison with the aliens. This way the audience has someone to connect with. But not all science
