Aliens: do they exist? And more importantly, what do they look like? Some scientists think they could resemble people, while others theorize they could be machines. There's another possibility, too: they could look like sci fi aliens. The creative minds in Hollywood have populated TV shows and movies with a vast menagerie of aliens, from the nightmare-inducing to the downright adorable.

If Earth is going to be invaded, it's important to consider what time of extraterrestrial leader you'd want. Maybe you prefer your masters to be collected and logical, like the Vulcans on Star Trek. If cuddly aliens are more your thing, Wookiees and Asogians are both represented here. And then there are the more hostile creatures. The Xenomorphs from Alien and Harvesters from Independence Day aren't exactly peaceful, but they sure know how to get things done.

Check out this list of different kinds of aliens in film and on TV, and vote up the creatures you would most warmly welcome as your new alien overlords.
