Ortolans, the species of which Max Rebo is a member, from Star Wars. He's like a blue elephant. Need I say more? Also, Ewoks, because they're adorable.

The Necrons from Warhammer 40 K . They're far scarier than the the Daleks.

I rather liked C.J. Cherryh's Iduve from Hunter of Worlds. They had a reasonable sense of their position in the Galaxy.

I’ve just remembered how much I love Q! Mad, bad and dangerous to know. I have spent many team meetings wishing I could snap my fingers and make them all go away :giggle:

A wet, but photogenic, bit of Scotland.
Pilot from Farscape. A gentle, curious, beautifully acted creation. I'm not sure if the species' evolution was ever explained - how could an planet bound crustation thing develop a symbiotic relationship with an hyperspace jumping, biomechanical space ship? (I assumed the hand of some sort of 'lost' ancient galactic civilisation like whoever built all the Jump Gates in Babylon 5 or the monolith in 2001.)

I’ve been compared to Pilot… big nose, big eyes and long limbs. There might’ve been a compliment in there somewhere…

Treecats from David Weber's Honor Harrington wild but civilized and telepathic.

Theodore Sturgeon ruined Vulcans with the best Star Trek episode about Vulcans, Amok Time.
