OK, I know that a lot of people created characters and Bridge Officers utilizing the various Canon Races, but there have to be people who used the ambiguous "Alien" Race at least once--either for themselves or their Bridge Officers.
So, out of curiosity, what have people done with the options provided with "Aliens"? Did you create your own race, bring in a race from another franchise, or did you use it to create an Android?
I have made my own species, which currently isn't actually represented in my captains lineup (only three slots? Boooooo!), since currently my captains are running on a monospecies concept such as all Klingon. It's what I use in absolutely any 'alien' bridge officer however, so might pop up in my newest captain. My newest captain is technically 'alien', but is actually a Vulcan since I didn't want to have two wasteful and useless ground traits, which in one case wouldn't make sense anyway because I like flipping the monocultures in Star Trek on their head and wrote her up as rejecting the Vulcan way and feeling. My Klingon captain has the cute stance and is more like a curious, ditzy human. :p
