NQ has said several times that there wont be any NPC's.

Then that's that.

 

What they have said though, keep in mind this is 3rd hand information here, is that there will be scripted events that cause certain changes in the universe that players can respond to.

 

Thus aliens could be implemented in a few ways:

 

Archaeology - just little ruins dotted about planets that have no purpose other than looks. Or perhaps a mystery that players can uncover like in stellaris with the ancients questline. Perhaps salvageable technology. Perhaps a deadly virus like the markers in dead space.

 

Extra dimensional beings - you don't actually interact with them. They are ambiguous. They appear in weird places like supernatural entities. They are more of a foreboding ominous presence. Like a gravity anomaly where there shouldn't be one. And as you get closer you start seeing weird shit like shapes darting around your peripheral vision and odd lights. Bermuda triangle sort of shit. Or perhaps they're not so spooky. Maybe they just pop up from a rift in the sky and throw funny looking free stuff at you then leave. Who knows.

 

Alien pets - I believe we have alien fauna and robot pets. Why not animal pets?

 

Goblin/nekker/reikling aliens - if you've ever played the Witcher or dragon born DLC for skyrim you'll know what I'm talking about. Semi-sapient chimpanzee-paleolithic level goblinoids that run around wearing loin cloths brandishing spears and scream at you. They won't interact intelligent with you. They just get scared and run off or clusterfuck you. Occasionally can be observed jabbering or bashing rocks together or something dumb like that. Perhaps you can even have a pet one.

Fyi.... Pets aren't NPC's  ;)

Well, think about this. It only took our civilization 12000 years to get to where we are, and wont take much longer to get into space. Meanwhile, universe has been around for 13 billion years about. So if there are aliens, either they are super primative (stone age) or they are way beyond our level of tech.

That's why there's the option of primitive. And who's to say one didn't evolve 13000 years ago if we could?
