Default Just noticed something...

Out of all the sci-fi universes... (minus starship troopers)

40K is the only one I've ever seen when the Humans don't sleep with hot alien chicks... :P

Random... But I just noticed it... xD

Hmm... Genestealer hybrids! You can't really tell they're not human for the first couple of generations (except possibly the fact that they have a strangely hypnotizing stare, and a few too many teeth). After that, the extra arms tend to give it away.

Humanity is far too xenophobic to copulate with other races.

I don't really understand this. I mean, its really impossible when you think about it for aliens and humans to sleep with one another, let alone have offspring. (Unless you're a genestealer or use some genetic science)

Even with the Genestealers, its not particularly pleasant... unless you enjoy being stabbed in the stomach and getting implanted with the next generation :huh:

Its not like Aliens. Basically the host is infected with genes. Most of the time the host completely unaware they've been infected until the baby comes, and even then, the first generation usually doesn't seem out of place (although they tend to have that hypnotizing stare I mentioned earlier). Second and third start becoming more and more alien, with extra arms and claws and teeth, and then fourth generation (I think) comes out as a Purestrain Genestealer.

I recall someone mentioning a few exceptional Humans who mated with Eldar, but that's a rarity.

Also, I can (despite not really wanting to) envision Slanneshi types violating pretty well anything if they give the modus operandi some thought :sadnshocked:...

I do not know why but I am under the impression that this cycle repeats itself after the 4th generation.


So even later generations can still be hybrids or almost human looking whilst some generations are complete purestrains.


Also lu22, you mean the only space opera without inter-racial sex? Because I can think of many sci-fi (none space operas) that doesn't have this. (ie. the entire space odyssey series, most of the close encounter stories, call of cthulhu, etc etc)
