Indeed they will damage any ship regardless of what you point them at :) Fear not they are not Alien Selective :)
A Walk in the Woods helps me relax and release the tension from a hard day at the code.
The fact that I'm dragging a body behind me should be irrelevant!

Err, you do not need Plasma weapons to kill Aliens. Kinetic works excellent. And Plasma guns can kill normal ships. They are too strong for raids, however.
But
You need Plasma salvage gear to salvage Alien Wrecks, and you cannor salvage regular wrecks with Plasma salvage guns. And salvage in expanse is really important.

There are also Alien Derelicts, where you need energy or Plasma guns, but it is rarely useful
