The poor Natives in Hyperspace are too primitive and insignificant for the advanced space faring Civilizations to even bother remembering their names. Lets have the community come up with some names for these nameless Natives. Silly or serious, just have at it.


Current Names:

Brain Alien

Bug Alien

Cyborg Alien

Eyeball Alien

Gray Alien

Primitive Alien

Reptile Alien

Slime Alien

Cannon fodder works great or possibly target practice? Would be very easy race name to remember!

Not sure on their names, but I am pretty sure they like to roast martian-mallows...

Did you happen to try these out in any of your games?

----

My own reactions:

- I like how the native alien figures all represent different kinds of stereotyped alien races.

- I don't know where "Gray Alien" comes from. I think "UFO Alien" might be better.

- There are perhaps too many stereotypes to include them all, but here are some future stereotyped native aliens I'd like to see:
--- Tentacle alien!
--- Cat alien.
--- Bird alien.
--- Fuzzy alien.

@Bariman

Gray Aliens are the stereotypical creatures people think of when they think of UFO aliens. Big Heads, black eyes, skinny, short, and grey skin.
Gray Alien = UFO Alien.

Here is additional info.

They don't come with a perk, nor any unique abilities. That's just fan stuff
