Welcome to the Alien Species Wiki
6,380 articles since we began
Alien Species Wiki is a website containing information on any alien creature ever imagined by mankind, from Star Trek's Tribbles to Wayne Barlowe's Emperor Sea Striders. The wiki format allows anyone to freely add or edit content!
And feel free to browse the Alien Species Gallery, it is a good tool for learning the names of aliens you have only seen but do not know the name of.
Canon and non-canon are both allowed here, as long as you keep the reader informed about whether any given information is canon or not. However, we do not allow fanon here, but instead we encourage users to add their fanon to one of our our sister projects, Extraterrestrial Fanon Wiki, Alien Fanon Wiki or Multiverses wiki (more discriminating), which are specialized in dealing with it.

Jenova's name is a portmanteau of "Jehovah" and "Nova". "Jehovah" is a widely-accepted romanization of the ineffable Hebrew name 'יהוה', one of the many names of the Abrahamic God.
