Welcome to the Alien Species Wiki

9,027 articles since we began

Alien Species Wiki is a website containing information on any alien creature ever imagined by mankind, from Star Trek's Tribbles to Wayne Barlowe's Emperor Sea Striders. The wiki format allows anyone to freely add or edit content!

And feel free to browse the Alien Species Gallery, it is a good tool for learning the names of aliens you have only seen but do not know the name of.

About us

Canon and non-canon are both allowed here, as long as you keep the reader informed about whether any given information is canon or not. However, we do not allow fanon here, but instead we encourage users to add their fanon to one of our our sister projects, Extraterrestrial Fanon Wiki, Alien Fanon Wiki or Multiverses wiki (more discriminating), which are specialized in dealing with it.

Alien Species Wiki's database currently have over 2500 Sapient Species, plus 900 Non-Sapient Species, 300 Locations, 400 Characters and 100 Affiliations and there is still MUCH to be done.

It is called the "calamity from the skies" or the "crisis from the sky" (空から来た厄災, Sora kara kita yakusai, lit. "Disaster which came from the sky"), or "Heaven's Dark Harbinger" by the cetra.

Jenova's name is a portmanteau of "Jehovah" and "Nova". "Jehovah" is a widely-accepted romanization of the ineffable Hebrew name 'יהוה', one of the many names of the Abrahamic God.
