The Mechanics of Evolution will generally come up with the same solution for any given environment life can develop in.

One can draw some assumptions with this.
A.If it's evolution occurred in a similar enviroment as earth than its likely to look similar to something of earthly origins.
B.It could possibly be a silicon based evolution and could look so alien to us it would be like something from out of a cheap horror flic.
C.By the time it's gained the he ability to travel the cosmos at faster than light speed travel than it could very likely have already evolved beyond any biological form and be some type of sentient robotic lifeform.

Grey skin in normal human light but probably coloured in near infrared. Big eyes to collect more light in a darker environment. Somebody's world orbits a red M class star I reckon. Also plants will look different in colour too depending on the type of star they orbit. Internally they could be very different. Land coral for example. An animal colony that looks like a tree. Chemistry is the same everywhere so we can look at our own fossil record for an idea. But we have to remember everything evolved under a G2 star. If it's a red or orange star the colours will be red or orange shifted from our point of view. Thick atmosphere would favour a balloon creature, also we have to take into consideration alien genetic engineering helping life jump evolutionly dead ends and changing life to live on another planet. Lastly it could be so different to what we're used to we'd never notice it until an alien told us about it. That sort of life could be on our own planet now. We just don't have the right sense organs to detect it. Blind and with no sense of smell or touch in a world of flowers. Once we have the organs we can sense its beauty.

Probably gravity would also have an effect.  :alien:

I believe the greys could be for real. Evolution has made them skinny due to the fact that they r so advanced that they could avoid physical work. Bald bcos of too much uv rays from the sun due to interstella travelling. And tiny mouths as they only need sunlight to survive. Thats just my theory..

Its called "Convergent Evolution"

For example, bats and some insects developed wings to fly....but they are in no way related to the bird family

Convergent evolution is the independent evolution of similar features in species of different lineages. Convergent evolution creates analogous structures that have similar form or function but were not present in the last common ancestor of those groups

Unless the brain of the alien life develops telekinesis, chance are it's going to have some type of arms and hands to make and hold items.  Legs could be optional. IMHO

'Aliens' probably no longer have a 'home-world', imo. 

I count them as part of the "heavenly host" They are NOT angles in actual "Heaven" as defined by religions, but creatures inhabiting the 'heavenly places' meaning space.

The classic "grays" appearance makes allot of sense to me as an appropriate appearance for beings that live in the environment of space.

What would be NASA's response to the question: what would happen to people's appearance after millennia of living in space? Probably that they would become very much like the classically reported "gray" being.

Naturally this all assumes they actually do exist.

cool, though this is just a random statement not having anything to do with science so a waste of time and resource

if will ever get to see an alien, it'll only happen if he or she had travelled to us. If that is the case, obviously it must be technologically advanced, must have a brain attached by a body, hands and fingers to manipulate tools and build all that technology  . Of course all won't be possible without naturally moving so it must have legs too. Can birds, bees, octopus, jelly fishes or dolphins build a space ship ? Answer is NO they cannot. Only humanoid creatures can do... 

Now please don't give me examples of dolphins and beavers building shaks, or ingenious hideouts, that is obviously different than a spaceship...

While evolution does bring about methodical change consistent with the environment, the environment may not be stable. The frequency of extreme and often random environmental changes, such as mass extinction events, would affect outcome. So, the question as to whether there is sufficient time between these events to evolve a species comparable to a human is yet another probability to consider. Then, there is also the question as to whether the successful species is smart enough to have, for example, colonized another habitable planet to assure species continuation before the next mass extinction event on the home planet.

also there was another study made a while ago by anthropologists. 

Essentially some were saying that if Dinosaurs would't have went exist, some branches may have normally evolved into humanoids smart like creatures.  It is however important to look at the other side of the coin in speaking about natural evolution; there are million of species today descending directly from dinosaurs, which includes "living fossils like crocodiles" that have not evolved at all by contrary, animals like birds whose evolution was downwards from the majestic creatures they once were.  This can pose a serious " threat" to all "Darwin's" believers. 

The great apes are the only successful branch who lead to who we are today if Darwin was however correct. Of course the only explanation of their success is anatomy , they had hands with fingers and legs which allowed them to use tools , enhance their brain and conquer the word this way... in other words if you meet up with an alien, it must be hominid.. if Darwin was right... 

If not... a divine entity "helping" evolution along the way, wiping dinosaurs to enhance life for the desired race engineered etc.. is not a fantasy either... still though jelly fishes cannot build spaceships  because anatomically is just impossible...

I think if he's the industrialized one and not an amoeba, he would wear some sort of clothes if he traveled all the way to here...

I don't see how the light spectrum would change the physical nature, we come in a variety of course, that's nothing new. The physics of manipulation and leverage would be the deciding factors which are most likely to produce very recognizable beings. Just as convergent evolution has here on earth

It's possible that a highly intelligent, warm blooded dinosauroid humanoid species evolved on some distant planet in another star system --- With body parts consisting of: two large eye sockets housed in a large brain case, internally sheathed penis for the males, two arms, two legs, with three fingered hands and three toed feet.

Draco Constellation? Reptilians?
