An alien is a humanocentric biological term to describe a sentient species other than a Human. It is often used interchangeably with the term Non-Human. Since Humans are the most prominent sentient species, they are often considered to be a standard or average to which the biology, psychology, and culture of other species are compared. Thus species with a body type roughly similar to Humans are often referred to as humanoid. Aliens are often times victims of speciesism, being derided and avoided by Humans in certain societies, especially the Empire where aliens are not allowed to join and are treated as second class.
