Zygon (Doctor Who)
The Zygons are an alien race that feature in Doctor Who.
Centuries ago, a Zygon vessel was journeying through space when it was damaged and crashed on Earth where they waited for rescue. At some point afterwards, it was noted that their world was destroyed in a stellar explosion. This saw a great refugee fleet being assembled and managing to escape he planet before the catastrophe. The force was looking to find a new world for their people with the ship on Earth sending a call to them to settle the inhabited world. The Zygon force intended to conquer Earth and restructure it to their needs thus turning it into their new homeworld though it was expected that the fleet would take centuries to arrive. (Episode: Terror of the Zygons)
They were not above enslaving other species and using them for labour purposes. (Episode: Terror of the Zygons)
As a result, they typically kept their captive alive and contained in pods as a source of information.
They claimed that their technology was supreme and superior to other civilizations. (Episode: Terror of the Zygons)
Zygon technology allowed them to turn themselves into replicas of other species allowing them to infiltrate other civilizations. This was achieved through a device that took a body print of the subject with abductees kept captive during this time. (Episode: Terror of the Zygons)
They were known to convert creatures known as Skarasen into armoured cyborgs of devastating power. These beasts were a vital part of their society as their lactic fuild was needed for the survival of the Zygon. Such large reptilian animals were raised from embryos as a vital life source. (Episode: Terror of the Zygons)
Their technology was capable of terraforming worlds where they restructured the environment by eliminating polar icecaps, raising mean temperatures and the right mineral elements being introduced in thousands of lakes. (Episode: Terror of the Zygons)
