    Got to like that gelf slug thing that Kryten romances with. Oh and that clone of the polymorph thing that lived in Listers sock drawer which died of old age.

    Oh and the coolness of the cat race. :-D

    I like the Cat's alternate from the Parralel Universe seen in... well, Parralel Universe.

    "Please! If your gonna say that word, spell it!"

    "When was the last time you took a B-A-T-H?!"

    "... Whats that?"

    I loved the mutton vindaloo beast - although it wasn't in the episode for long at all. Second to that, I'd have to say polymorph. Anything that even slightly resembles the xenomorphs from the Alien quadrilogy is AWESOME!!!

    The Inquisitor for sure,
    Psirens were cool and intriguing, although with Camille you wouldn't end up dead,
    The creature we never saw properly in Terrorform was decent and quite eerie,
    Legion looked good but I didnt like the idea of his face being everybody else's together,
    The original Polymorph was cool but the 'sequel' was bad.

    Simulants are too much like terminators for me hehe and I dont like Gelfs either, not sure why.

    Mine would be the Epideme. It was a very memorable character, and Gary Martin's performance was great.


    I actually wasn't wild about that one. Having it be a disc jockey was just too incongruous, and reminded me of that awful Dalek story that Colin Baker did in the 80's.

    Me, I was kind of partial to Sergeant Presley. As someone pointed out, there are no aliens in Red Dwarf, but if we're talking guest stars, I guess I'd go with Ace.

    Probably the Inquisitor for me.

    A villian who wants to kill you? Yawn. A monster that wants to suck out your brains? Zzz. An android that attempts you erase you from history all together? Now THAT is cool.

    The Inquisitor. One of the most serious threats the Dwarfers ever faced.

    I, for one, would like to know what people from history were un-erased (if that makes sense) due to his encounter with the Red Dwarf crew. :lol:

    what about listers wife, can't remember the name of the species.
    and what about the psyrens.
    i can't remeber any references stating that they originated from earth but my memory is crap.

    Kinitawowi. I'm not sure if that's the name of the species or that particular tribe though. In the book 'Last Human' they were described as being a mixture of gorrilla and hippopotamus DNA I believe. (I think the series universe's versions were part orang-utan myself.)

    The psirens were described as a species of gelf. Therefore they were made by humans (although, "Why?" seems a valid question. Probably they started off as some kind of soldier like the polymorphs.)

    They were a kind of gelf yes. Kinitawowi. I might have misspelt that.

    I like the other Polymorph who over time turned into a copy of the RED DWARF & fed on the emotions of
    captured GELFs.

    Of course to know what I'm referencing you would have to have read the comics found in the
    SMEGAZINES.

    Here is my take on the PolyDwarf for my RPG page.

    They were indeed gelfs but you have to remember that a gelf is a
