Time Lords possess a non-linear perception of time and have the ability to travel through time, which makes them horrible at keeping appointments, but awesome if you needed something done yesterday. The particular specimen pictured above makes for a rather interesting travel companion. Oh, and did we mention that he's also a Doctor?

2. Castithans


Castithans are an aristocratic race who view themselves as superior to all other species in Defiance. Don't let their ethereal looks fool you. One wrong step around them and you just might find a knife stuck through your back.

3. Ewoks


Don't let their cute and cuddly looks fool you. Ewoks are actually vicious, bloodthirsty creatures who participated in the genocide of government peacekeepers stationed on the planet Endor.

5. Hutts

If you're ever short on cash and need to borrow a quick buck, the Hutts are the scaly ones to turn to. Just be sure to pay them back or else you'll have alien bounty hunters chase you across the galaxy.

12. Irathient


Irathients are a proud, tribal people, often perceived as feral by others due to their deep love of the natural world and aggressive demeanor. If they were any more one with nature they'd be rocking Birkenstocks.
