    Nope :D... V the Series. Good series, they're remaking it soon

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V_(TV_series)

    A race of aliens arrive on Earth in a fleet of 50 huge, saucer-shaped motherships, which hover over major key cities across the world. They reveal themselves on the roof of the United Nations building in New York City, appearing human but requiring special glasses to protect their eyes and having a distinctive resonance to their voices. Simply referred to as the Visitors, they reach out in friendship, ostensibly seeking the help of humans to obtain chemicals and minerals needed to aid their ailing world. In return, the Visitors promise to share their advanced technology with humanity. The governments of Earth accept the arrangement, and the Visitors, commanded by their leader John and his deputy Diana, begin to gain considerable influence with human authorities.

    Mass hysteria and mass complacency are flip sides of the same coin. Never panic, always think for yourself. Question all information, even from those individuals and sources you hold most cherished, for in those instances, complacency and hysteria alike become all too easy. All information either comes from humans or is filtered through the human mind (our own or another's) and thus subject to human faults no matter if it comes from a scientist or a messiah. Question it. And constantly question yourself.

    Plus, I'm not entirely convinced that if these creatures do in fact exist that they are necessarily extraterrestrial at all. Back in 1982 a scientist created a mockup of what a sentient bipedal Dinosaur might have looked like:



    Why couldn't it have been possible something like this did evolve and somehow managed to go into space before the asteroid or whatever hit? We discover new dinosaur species all the time. Perhaps one day we'll discover this, or maybe even signs of their civilization fossilized...
    That was an episode of Star Trek Voyager, IIRC.

    Yeah, but the theory is older than that. Countless world myths talk about Reptilian beings coming down from the sky. Consider the Aztec god Quetzalcoatl, for example. His name means "feathered serpent". Interestingly, science has now proven many dinosaurs were feathered...
