Aliens are a staple of the science fiction genre. They also appear in fanfiction and fanart in many fandoms. In fiction, portrayals of aliens range from menacing to peaceful and from beings from civilizations far more advanced than human to simple life forms. Aliens may interact with humans/earthlings, but not necessarily.
