Great insult, once again like I said, I don't care about your backstory, I'm saying in THIS universe a new RACE(s) are discovered, maybe a jumpgate can get created to their galaxy or something I don't know. You're just trying to stick to your story like it's the Holy Bible. Think outside the box!


There should be some kind of coherence, uniformity in storylines.

You are basically saying that Star Trek should introduce jedi-like characters to make it more "opera-ish" like Star Wars.

We have aliens, just none are intelligent (insert joke about intelligent on Earth).

This is intentional.

Sometimes I call Mass Effect 2 "EVE Offline" (ME3 is strange and ugly). I hope aliens will be introduced sooner or later - at least within stations environment.

The Jove have so far evolved then devolved from human origin, I think you can safely classify them as alien.
So there you are, there are aliens in EVE. Question answered, we can close this now. P


Oh yeah, quoting Edward James Olmos,

Yes. I am also looking forward to the day when Jacus Roden denounces Gallente Federation and establish the Gallente Galactic Empire.

Oh... and of course, he has been the Sith Master that has been eluding the Jedi Council for so long.

There are aliens in EVE but they are either pets (Slaver Hounds), cleanup crew (Fedos) or dessert (hanging longlimb eggs).

As a new player you have not yet found a wormhole and entered it, thats where some aliens live "the Sleepers".

Have fun when you meet them Twisted

Sleepers are also of human origin, along with the other three ancient races, the Takmahl, Talocan and Yan Jung. This, however, doesn't mean they aren't alien. Why does everyone assume that aliens have to be green/pale with bulgy eyes?

CCP havn't finished with humans, they still need to add Indians, Arabs and Mexicans.

They should arrive on ships that look like elephants/camels/donkeys Pirate

As far as anyone is concerned, the other humans back home at Earth are basically aliens. And they would probably kill everyone in New Eden if they found it.

They do?

I was under the impression that all known 'life' (including drones) was human in origin.

The four empires being human colonies emerging from a dark age long after the collapse of the EVE gate.
The Jove being another human colony that went through a shorter and much less severe dark age.
Rogue Drones being a failed experiment by the Gallenteans in self-replicating military hardware.
Sleepers being the guardians of yet another technologically advanced human colony that seems to have been wiped out for one reason or another.
The other references to ancient cultures such as the Talocan also being some of the human groups that travelled through the EVE gate.

There are aliens all over New Eden.

Not all the planets were barren, lifeless rocks. There's always been indiginous life in the New Eden galaxy, it just wasn't of the higher intellect variety.

A case could also be made that some of the humans were aliens themselves. Humanity was highly evolved before it entered the EVE gate. Jovians may be human, but they're not really that much like the current residence of New Eden, and they aren't the only group that came to New Eden and aren't really "human" as we're familliar with; nor were they the most powerful.

There's a group of humans responcible for protecting the sleepers, I don't think I would consider them quite as human as us. The sleepers themselves only exist in our reality physically; they actually live in an entirely virtual world that they constructed. I believe the sleepers are only one of the most advanced Human "species" in New Eden.

I can't remember if the sleepers are or are not the arcitects, the guys responcible for first developing and building the gates in New Eden. If I remember correctly the Jove worked for them before the EVE gate collapsed, and at that time weren't even the most advanced group of Humans here. I got the impression that there are other groups that we aren't aware of, but the Jove are. I tihnk that it was the arcitects that first started using genetic manipulation on themselves, and that they passed some of the knowledge on to the Jove, as well as used it on the group that is supposed to protect the sleepers.

Wasn't there some sort of hint that there was some group out there that the Jove themselves were afraid of?

I think it's funny that the OP told someone to think outside the box, while he wants the generic grey men and slobbering sci-fi alien monster. Because that's obviously as outside the box as you can get, and hasn't been done to death already. CCP went outside the box, we are our own aliens through genetic manipulation -which was apparently a rather popular pasttime for several groups prior to the EVE gate collapse-, that resulted in Humans that are more alien to us than they are Human.

We are not the same people that came through the gate. We're far less advanced than some of the groups that were working in New Eden prior to the callapse of the EVE gate, and those guys were already altering themselves through genetic manipulations then, thousands of years ago. We haven't even caught up to where we were when the gate collapsed; I imagine that if humans were able to reach us from the Milky Way, we probably woudln't recognize them as Human.

Hmmm Aliens would be cool, but we already have some OP.

Jovians, Drones.

And every race is dynamically separate in there racial features. Now I think it would be more interesting to have different playable alien races in eve. OP, people in Eve have a big problem with change, they shoot down an idea people come with. So good luck. I like the idea, but CCP has way to much on their plate at the moment to worry about aliens.

It sucks to get old, because I can't remember the name of it... but wasn't there a post with a link in it about a spin off project that a Dev was working on in their own time that dealt with alien life in EVE?

I unfortunately didn't do more than glance at it at the time, intending to come back to it later and then promptly forgot about it. So perhaps my quick assessment is off the mark. I don't even have the bookmark. Sad
