Fandom Friday: My 5 Favorite Aliens

fandom friday, fandom, geek anthropology, pop culture, depepi.com

This fandom Friday is challenging mainly because my list of Aliens might be a little bit loose. If you’ve been reading me, you know already which character is going to be on the list regardless of the topic! I will always find a mischievous way to have that one on top. (And that really sounds mischievous.) Let’s begin!

1. Loki of Asgard.(Yes, he is from Asgard, and therefore, an alien).

And yes, this is the one and the only character that I’ll try to have on any list in which I have to choose characters I love. And yes: he is an alien. According to the MCU, his real father is a Jotun (a blue giant with a very bad character), and his adoptive parents are Asgardians. He is mischievous, a shape-shifter and I envision him as a lot of fun to be with. Of course, you cannot trust him very much.

2. Mr.Spock!

Of course, Mr. Spock! He is the most logical character to be on this list. I loved him as a child, being one of my favorite characters of all times. He is, and always will be, one of my favorite aliens.

3. Gamora.

Next: one of the most badass aliens out in the Galaxy! Gamora! You wouldn’t like to mess up with her. Nope. She is strong, fierce, and yet very feminine. Love her! She needed to be on my list. She is plainly awesome.

4. B’Elanna Torres (Klingons!)

B’Elanna Torres! Half Klingon half human badass Star Trek Voyager officer (former Maquis). Her struggle to get her identity right, and she being really stubborn, as so many Klingons are, is why she is so appealing. Besides, her romance with Paris was fun! Though I prefer it at the beginning, just before Seven of Nine appeared in the show. Because of… reasons…

5. Quark and Odo (Ferengi and Changeling, a Founder).

I cannot put this “couple” apart. These two frenemies were one of the funnies things about Deep Space 9. Quark, a Ferengi who had a bar and tried to do whatever he could to earn as much money as he could, and Odo, the security officer who tried to catch him all the time. Mind you, both had big hearts, but their frenemies relationship was funny, witty and one of the things that kept me watching the show. You got to love these two!!

By the way, I think this is the weirdest list I’ve written so far.


The idea of 5 Fandom Friday was started up by Super Space Chick, and I found it out at the Nerdy Girlie.

  • Reading this, I could do one just with Star Trek characters (I won’t, because it doesn’t fit the topic of my blog, but… I could)! I think my favourite aliens are probably all from Star Trek. I love the Quark-Odo relationship so much… just seeing this already makes me watch DS9 (which would be for the 3rd time).

    • Hehehe Start Trek is a pool for aliens! I didn’t want to write just a list with Star Trek aliens though~ And yes Quark-Odo are cool. Love them! (Don’t ask me how many times I’ve seen all the Star Trek shows + movies xDDDD Trekker here).

      • Fellow Trekkie here. The great thing is that I always forget what happens, so I can re-watch the shows (I’m more a fan of the shows than the movies in most cases) over and over again without it getting boring! ^^

        • xDDDD I cannot get bored with Star Trek. So, I can watch the shows again and again and again and again. πŸ˜€

  • Danielle Knapp

    I had a feeling Loki was going to be on your list πŸ™‚ I should probably get working on mine now! Happy Friday!

    • xDDD Yeah, I am Loki’d :p So, you will find him on my lists when the topic is related LOL Ooh! I will take a look at your list soon then πŸ™‚ Happy Friday to you too! <3

  • Charlotte Roberts

    Fabulous list!! I tried really hard not to put Loki on my list I wanted to give some time to other characters I love but now I wish I had!! And Quark and Odo! I loved their relationship to a great part of DS9!

    • Thanks! In my case, resistance is futile xDDD I needed to have him on my list xDDDD Yup, Quark and Odo’s frenemies relationship was one of the best things of DS9 πŸ™‚

  • Awww Spock πŸ™ Great list I very nearly put Thor on my list but I thought I’d try and be less obvious and list a few different characters, I’m quite tempted to expand the list though as there’s just so many awesome aliens I love xoxo

    β™₯ Cateaclysmic β™₯

    • Yes, I know what you mean xDDD But I guess I am too Loki’d just to let him out of the list LOL I love the topic of this week πŸ˜€ Favorite aliens <3

  • Kay

    These are great picks! Loki made my list as well, he’s just such a fun character.

    • OH YES! He is! Will check your list later on πŸ˜‰ I’m sure it’s going to be awesome!

  • This is an awesome list! So many great picks!!

  • Emma

    Love your list. Gamora made mine too. I completely overlooked Star Trek, daymn..

    • Thank you! <3 Oh Star Trek has a great pool of aliens~ πŸ˜€ Cool ones btw πŸ˜‰

  • Loooki <3

  • Nice list!

  • I didn’t even think of Loki, because I’m Pagan and worship him as one of my patron deities, haha. So seeing Marvel Loki, I wish I remembered the fictional character. ;.; BUT, I wouldn’t change my list! I actually plan on doing a second one at some point. I LOVE alien characters.

    Spock! Quark and Odo! YESSSS.

    • Hehehehe. Yeah, there are many Loki versions atm. I take into account all the versions, however, when I do these lists, if I can, I’ll put him on the list xDDDDD And I agree! Alien characters are the best! πŸ˜€

    • Amilia Kiesman

      I just thought the same thing! I am pagan as well so I skipped over Loki, great choice though. I wish I would have thought of it.

      • Loki reigns on everything πŸ˜‰
