Returning player starting a new character. Wanting to create from the alien option for race. Wondering what are the best traits to pick during character creation. Wanting to create from the alien option for race. Any help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

best depends completely on situation

e.g.

PVE heavy
PVP heavy
Ground Focused/Space Focused/Mixed
Captain Career (tact/eng/sci)
ship you intend to use at endgame
Tactics you plan on using on ship at endgame

etc ^^

I would suggest STOwiki's suggested trait page, for ideas though
Your Heavy Graviton Beam deals 26470 (10583) Kinetic Damage(Critical) to Assimilated Carrier.

This might help...

However, I stick with Efficient and the technical traits when using science aliens since those make your science ship work better.

Traits should be picked with PvP in mind, regardless of whether you're intending to be PvP-heavy. This is because PvE is faceroll and there is no need to specialize for it. While you might not intend to be PvP today, there's always stuff like Boot Camp which may change your mind...and you'll be smacking yourself for it when you pick some random crud that holds you back.
