There's a galactic war going on right now. We humans are caught in the middle of it. Which of these invading forces* should we fear the most if their side comes out victorious?






*NO FANTASY BASED ARMIES. NO HUMAN (homo-sapien, mutant, or zombified) BASED TROOP FORCES.

@tsarstepan,
The Daleks, super intelligent and utterly ruthless, they gave the Time Lords a run for their money.

No entries from Farscape and/or Lexx?

Lexx was kind of campy and may have been a little bit parody, but how about the Scarran Empire from Farscape?


Question: Is this limited to TV/Film, or are books allowed? I can think of some good ideas from books that have never made it onto a screen.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy made it to the big screen. Where are the Volgons?

Books? You can mention them here if you like. But I can only add TV or films to the IMDb if they have an appropriate image in their respective IMDb page image gallery.

I'll look into adding the Scarran Empire to the list.

@oralloy,
Do the Vogons have a military? Who was the aggressive alien race in Lexx?

@tsarstepan,
The Vogons were just a tool, the real villains were mice.

@izzythepush,
How should I actually word that in the text of the option? Keep in mind, I really don't believe there are any images of the mice in question in the TV or the 2005 movie.

@tsarstepan,
I don't know, I'd probably avoid comedies.

What about Invasion Of the Bodysnatchers?

Hard to defend against the alien when he looks like your best friend.

Volgons are part of a galactic civilization which earth is ignorant of (or at least the humans are ignorant of). They are mindless bureaucrats who will do whatever they've been instructed to do (provided that all the forms were properly filled out and submitted), even if it is something that someone with even a small amount of common sense would refuse to do.

They operate galactic construction equipment that can vaporize a planet.

They vaporize earth to make way for an unneeded hyperspace bypass, and without giving the inhabitants an opportunity to escape.

This will give you an idea which Farscape images show a Scarran character:

I'm not sure if Mantrid and his army of drone robot arms counts. He probably started out as something pretty close to human.

This is what he looks like when we first see him (not very much is human at this point):
http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e7/Lexx_mantrid.jpg

He is not entirely sane (in my judgment at least). He transfers his mind into a machine and constructs more and more drone robot arms, increasing construction at an exponential rate until he has transformed all matter in that universe into drone robot arms that are under his control.

How about The Mysterons? Admittedly war with them happened due to a misunderstanding, but they're very good at infiltrating and taking over by stealth.

@izzythepush,
I can only use them if they have some presence (movie or television or even rarer video game) on IMDb.com.

@tsarstepan,
It was a TV series long before it became a comic strip. Enjoy.

@izzythepush,
That's funny. And I'm amazed how many images that IMDb has in the serie's image gallery, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059973/mediaindex?ref_=ttmd_md_sm

I've added it to the list for sheer camp value. Brilliant catch Izzy! Laughing

@tsarstepan,
I loved it as a kid, but for me it was all about Captain Scarlet's indestructibility, but that didn't mean he didn't feel pain. From what I remember he got smashed each episode. I don't even think the war against the mysterons was going that well, Captain Black was never beaten, just foiled, or partially foiled.

UFO was another Gerry Anderson feature with a mysterious alien adversary whose motives were never clear. As for camp? Well you tell me.
