When a combat card turn up with penalty for the player with the fewest crew
- do we include alien when counting the number of crews?
I think aliens count as 1 crew.
Yes. If you look at the picture on the card, you will see two crew figures, one 'standing' behind the other. If you look even more closely, you will see that the crew in front is the shape of a normal crew and the one behind is the shape of an alien crew.
So, each individual crew figure or alien figure counts one towards the "fewest crew" penalty. As an aside, while it is not part of your question, exact capabilities of crew vs. aliens do have some differences with regard to other rules, even though in "crew count" situations they are treated the same.
