Silurians are a very diverse species, with at least two known phenotypes. In general, Silurians are cold-blooded, roughly the size as humans, with a large head, four digits on each hand and green scaly skin. Their mouths are small and somewhat sucker-like. The noticeable features of the Silurians are their three eyes. Their main eyes are bright yellow with cat-like pupils. The third eye is red and on their foreheads. Their third eye has various abilities, such as stunning or killing their opponents, signaling each other, or opening doors keyed to emanations from the third eye. All of these abilities appear to be psychic in nature. The eye glows when it is active.

As mentioned, there are two major subspecies of Silurian. The first type have green, lumpy skin, a large mouth, rectangular ears and an inset third eye. The second have a stockier build, brown skin, a smaller mouth and the third eye on top of their heads. They also have ornate spikes on their head.

At some point in Earth’s history the Silurians were the rulers of the planet. They were led by the Triad and used the Sea Devils as soldiers. Eventually, they discovered a large planet coming dangerously close to Earth. This panicked the Silurians, who sent themselves into hibernation to protect their species. Though this planet was actually just the Moon, the hibernation technology was faulty. After millions of years they finally awakened. After this, in the late 20th century the Silurians clashed with Humans and attempted to reclaim the planet. They were repelled by UNIT.

At the end of the 24th Century the Silurians made their presence known on Earth as they felt the people of Earth had evolved enough to join them on the surface. Political climates on Earth are heated but the UFP has recognized the rights of the Silurian to stay in the Sol system.
