Species

Whether you are looking for a non player character or building a player character from scratch, there are special base states for those species of Alien. For a full list of Aliens, see our section in the templates, Aliens.

The following is a general breakdown of Alien species for quick reference.

Many people live in the galaxy use the word “race” when referring to various aliens. While this usage is common, it is also incorrect. The proper term for each alien is “species”, as “race” is also a term used to denote different sub-groups of a particular species, distinguished by different physical characteristics. This distinction is an important one because, like humans, many alien species have a number of races.
