To be honest I'm going to have to say the Steve Perry aliens. I just thought they were better. Anderson in AVp my opinion is he just really didn't know what he was doing. But is your question about the Alpha or which alien was better.
the main question im asking it what would be more canon of the two resources, cause they have different views on subjects, so what i am trying to do i figure out, what the general populace thinks is the more reliable resource
