No, I don't. Everything I mentioned about the local search also applies to the interstellar one. We were talking about the "likelihood" of finding intelligent life not about how far away it might be.<quoted text>
You've got the solar system and the galaxy confused. The search for life. past or present, on the planets and moons of our solar system, is unrelated to the search for intelligent, technologically savvy civilizations orbiting distant stars. SETI and the Drake equation refer to the latter.
Sending probes to local moons and planets is a very different search than scanning the skies for intelligent broadcasts. Probes do chemical assays searching for signs of microbial life. There may be something as complex as a fish swimming in the oceans under the ice of Jupiter's moon Europa, but nobody is scanning the skies looking for its electronic messages.
The Drake equation is about establishing odds of finding life, of which there are none until another example, besides ourselves, is found. It's not like we'll ever leave this solar system anyway.
