Re: Alien "species" or alien "race"?
Actually, my question remains unanswered: how do you call inhabitants of other planets? My personal opinion is that they're not to be called species or races, there must be some other, more accurate term ...
Star Trek seems to use "lifeforms," this isn't a general term that includes animals, plants, etc., but is specific to intelligent beings.
