Zhodani or Vilani. Zhodani have such a great should-be-a-paradise-but-really-a-nightmare-world society (at least to us), and it would be nice to see a view of them as antagonists (or even protagonists against the Third Imperium) that isn't the stereotyped OMG!Psi!

I also have a count for Hivers from the peanut gallery.

Teh Hivorz :mrgreen:

Matt has already stated that MP is working from the Spinward Marches outwards, so the Solomani, K'kree and Hiver AMs are a loooonnggg way off.

Hivers and K'kree - these guys have historically always been at the end of the queue when it comes to Alien modules, and I'd really like to see them given some love for a change.

Another Vote for the Zhodani followed by the Droyne.

Matt has been hinting at a "Twilight's Peak" type of Adventure, so a Droyne book that goes into some of the "Secrets of the Ancients" would be a nice tie-in.

I'd be for Droyne before Zhodani, Hivers before Droyne, and K'Kree last before a big collection book of the Minor races.

~Rex....Has his Vargr book....all of the Imperium will fall before the Dread Pirate Pilsner, Corsair Captain of the Chow bloodline! (Who says all Vargr have to look like Werewolves?). :D

You know the Original Classic Alien Module list was in order

Alsan, K'kree, Vargr, Zhodani, Drone, Solomani, Hivers, Darrians then their was the Alien Realms Adventure Anthology.

between JTAS and Adventures the Basic Alien release list was a bit different, IIRC it was Vargr, Drone, Zhodani, Aslan, Sword Worlders

MegaTraveller was Vilani &Vargr then Solamani & Aslan the plan was for the Joes & Drone to be book 3 and K'kree & Hiver for 4 before finishing with the Minor races.

TNE had some Minor Races in the Star Vikings Books and Darrians, Aslan, Joes and Vargr in Keepers of the Flame, but Hivers where the focus of the first (and only) dedicated Alien book (Unless you count Virus as an Alien)

Ok for the record, I would like to see them all but would like to see the Darrians next followed by the Droyne (the correct spelling). It would be nice to see Mongoose come up with a bunch of minor races also located within the Spinward marshes as well too third.

Given the painting of the pointy-eared lady in the latest issue of S&P, I'd say the Darrians were next.

K'Kree though I fear Zhodani is going to be next one(well not that I can't live with them but I have been curious about K'Kree from the start ;-)

I don't want the Zhodani because I have used them so heavily for over 20 years I already have them written up, so anything more "official" will probably be ignored by me, unless they put more unique psionics stuff in the book.

How about a bunch of minor races? With maybe 1 or 2 page descriptions.

I am for the K'kree and Hivers - although I am afraid they will show up only when/if MGP publishes atlases of the Trailing Sectors (Gateway Domain and to the SE of that), well after the Sollie Rim (which would be the next logical step after the Spinward Marches and surroundings). :cry:

Hm... we've got the Vargr (or I will soon - hopefully), so we need the K'Kree. Let's get this dog and pony show on the road! :P
