    That's what I mean: they shared a common ancestor in the past and are related, but went different paths. Somewhere gizka also had to lose their front limbs. I wonder if they are distant cousins?

    ...because....this shark thing below is apparently a distant cousin of Selkath, both descending from that other shark-thing.

    [​IMG]

    So it's the Selkath that have sharks in their distant past.....maybe they only pretend they're peaceful? o_O


    Also...........I noticed Flesh raiders listed as a subspecies of Rakata in wookieepedia?
    Am I the only one confused why? they're so mutated they should be another species......subspecies would mean they can actually interbreed ( eww....)

    Can they split or are they stuck like that? Is there any reason why the green one has four eyes and the larger one two? the green one looks pretty cool.
    And.............


    I still think Ewoks are creepier. :p

    here's a question: are there any depictions of alien kids in EU? and yes....near-humans, twi'lek etc are included. Always wondered what a baby flesh raider looks like....is it like a small bipedal hammerhead shark?


    :D

    Well, according to the Wook they are born separately and then conjoin (permanently stuck as is) later before adulthood. . .talk about an interesting adolescence.

    As for the Pyke, I wish there was something more describing them, they look cool, but what else is there to them?

    Nothing.
    TCW has a habit of dumping interesting aliens with little backstory. Same with Bivall, one of my favorites.
    I guess that's what EU is for.

    I think you are confusing tCW with Star Wars overall

    TCW is composed of episodes and seasons--it had time to develop backstories for aliens.
    SW movies are movies...movies are short.

    What about the comics and the books that many times do the same thing?

    Comics/books have time to develop backstories for aliens if authors choose.

    Anyone have any suggestions how to make this place awesome? What do you people want to talk about regarding aliens?

    So you should complain about the EU overall instead of just tCW

    Gamiel

    You want me to complain about the EU?
    .......Well...okay.

    Why isn't there enough Rakata in the EU?
    Why aren't they in every book, comic, etc?
    Why isn't there a Dawn of the Rakata?
    What do Rakatan Predors do in their spare time?
    Why isn't EU addressing any of this?

    ...........oh yeah, and why don't all aliens get a decent backstory all the time?
    :p

    Mitth_Fisto you always bring in here interesting aliens

    Just because we are in the middle of our worlds food chain does mean we are at the bottom of yours [face_cowboy]

    In fact I have wondered what Rakata taste like :p

    Rakata may have grizzle but fur absorbs a lot of damage ;) I win:p

    Now would that be a white wine reduction sauce or a la cart?

    not so fast...Rakata have shark teeth and aggression.

    and they might taste like chicken a little on the darkside
