Model in if they had a bombardment of asteroids that deposited metals at a mineable depth, because if they didn't, the only thing the potential inhabitants are flying is probably kites. We can still take their **** when we finish wiping our ass with this planet and solar system, right?

There must be another ID of this star. There are many catalogs, e.g. SAO, that list all stars down to very dim magnitudes. TOI-700 doesn't really cut it.

100 light-years is not "close". If it is not within 50 LY, it may as well be a million LY. Even if we were very advanced, we are not likely to be moving more than 0.8 light speed. That makes 100 LY, 125 years away. Obviously, that is a long time. 50 LY would put it 62.5 years away. Granted, in the next 100 years we will likely be able to extend lives, but hundreds of years is not very likely unless people are completely reengineered.
