Why Have The Space Humanoids Visited Us Marvel 1955

i added two alien species here

So I now have worked out a few types of regular aliens for my campaign but as the Galactic treaty is mostly humanoid species I thought I would make these tables to cover other aliens players meed before blowing them up. 

The Galactic Treaty forbids and protects meddling with lower civilisations.

Earth 1954 moved from this protected status but the treaty isn't over yet

Treaty members may stop other civilisations meddling with Earth and will use psionics and psychotronic memory wipe machines to keep Earth protected while it is prepared for contact. Most aliens think Earth is doomed to nuclear destruction so are willing to break the rules.

3 of 5 characters are aliens currently in-game
I will probably use previous articles' links to generate some aliens to investigate future games

As tech is going faster than real 1955 history will probably have space stations in orbit in years

Consider any of these could be twisted to evil and any action could be just desperation for aliens who might have their own problems.

Alien Ships For Marvel
Aliens may be actual aliens but could also be androids, replicants, hybrids, robots or a mix
Often an all-robot crew has a superior leader. Some races died out and left robots behind.
Enlightened aliens might be multi-species
Goblinoids may have varied castes on crew
Accelerate to maximum speed in one round or hover if needed

Scout Ship
One or two crew and dependent on a larger ship, no passengers, 
a robot or android often takes one crew slot for exploration

Body: RM
Speed: Mn in atmosphere ShiftY in space 
Amazing force field 
Can release Rm heat in the area for ram attacks
Rm stealth and chameleon field

Intruder Ship
Five crew with sleep pods plus cargo space and a small lab for specimens, a robot or android often takes at least one crew slot for exploration

Body: Am
Speed: Un in atmosphere Class1000 in space 
Monsterous force field or can release In heat in the area
Incredible area fx energy bolt or stun or Am beam
Rm Tractor beam
Rm Stealth field vs technological detection

Mother Ship
Twenty four crew including sub ship crew but also with robots or androids. Has cabins, hospitals, labs, specimen habitats, holo decks, auto factories, landing bay and other areas. Often hide behind the moon and might set up a base leave some ships and crew and leave. Each Mothership carries several scouts (max of 8) and or intruder ships (max of 4)

Body: Un
Speed: Shft X 
in atmosphere Class3000 in space 
Unearthly forcefield but vulnerable when subships landing
Monsterous area fx energy bolt or stun or Unearthly beam
Amazing Tractor/Repulsor beam

Alien Bases and Base Ships
A small colony, start with science and observation but might become a colony. Some have a moon or mountaintop or underwater base. The Galactic Treaty are beings who sort of limit contact with primitives and limit hostilities and extinction events, The Treaty operate a base on Earth used by several species who even use the station replicant factory. 

The one human superhero team who found the base and boarded were absolutely mind-wiped so no worries there for drama.

Many non-treaty species have formed a secret syndicate and have drawn up plans to share earth a thrallworld of slaves where humans will toil for alien tourists and organised crime. They have a secret base for lesser scum species and syndicate ships might have multi-species crews with odd powers.

I may add species from the Dark Conspiracy RPG also. 

If the game lasts into the 60s I guess I will just port in SHADO from the TV show UFO crossed with MIB as there will be dealings with other races.
