I don't really care what a player might do more often -- depends on play style, but attacking and blockading your enemy is very easily understood as the default or normal interaction. I thought about "open" as the opposite to "secret", but that word has too many meanings to clarify anything.
"Aggressive" makes no sense for any empires you are not at war with.
Also, the same icons are used for both settings for empires and fleets. "combat.png" is unused.
Can you link one of them to different icons so i can help visually distinguish diplomatic status from fleet settings.
