  • Poll: Fav Aliens

    I always like Sci-Fi writers to come up with really ├┤unbelievably├ believable aliens, hence the reason why I liked B5 so much. It was the idea behind the Shadows that initially caught my attention and lured me in to the larger storyline. Those real nasty aliens from Starship Troopers were a product of a great imagination as was the she-alien from Aliens. From my youth there were the Triffids and for the Brits among us the Cybermen and the Daleks from Dr Who. For comedy it has to be the 2 characters from Mystery Science Theatre.

    Anyone else got some favourite aliens they'd like to share with the forum?

    When I've thought about this I'll come back with a top 5 or 10.

          For my favorites, I'd have to look back to Dr. Who. Nothing better than seeing a cyberman or dalek running around!

              By far the best aliens, IMO, were the "Moties" from A Mote in God's Eye. Dunno why they never made that book into a movie, it's got everything you need.
              I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station, when it is quiet, and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we are gone .. our voices will linger in these walls for as long as this place remains. But I will admit .. that the part of me that is going .. will very much miss the part of you that is staying.
