Because we haven't observed intelligent alterations to stellar and galaxy level systems, I'm guessing that intelligent life is rare and may not be sustainable, but is still possible.
I think we will observe during this century a planet similar to earth that may indicate some level of life, giving us hope for what is out there. Whatever we do find out there will never be imagined and will surprise us.
