Can thie category for "Ancient Species" be changed to species that are a million years or older rather than a billion years or older? I think a million years should suffice to be considered as an ancient species. If the category should remain a billion years, then it needs to be cleaned up. There are quite a number of alien species in this category which are not a billion years old. Species which sources (comics, movies, etc) specifically show them as having been around millions of years not a billion years and in at least one case there is no source stating that they have been around for a million years much less a billion years (only as far back as humanity, which is in the 100s of thousands of years).

Well, a million years is ancient from our perspective, but from a cosmic perspective, it's not. There are plenty of species in media which are truly billions of years old, so the category, in my opinion, is valid. I see no reason to change its criteria to match its recurring misuse. -- BlueFrackle (talk) 12:40, June 30, 2019 (UTC)
