Human After All
Some debate over whether Orions are human or not.
Lets not forget that Capt. Peach was very specific in claiming to be human, and very naked (how does anyone forget that?) at the time.
Human has a somewhat broader definition these last couple of decades. You and I, and possibly Tea Partyists, are Homo sapiens sapiens, and anything of the genus Homo counts; going back to Homo habilis. There is genetic evidence that Homo sapiens and Homo neanderthalensis were inter-fertile and there’s some debate that Neanderthals should be classified as a sub-species; Homo sapiens neanderthalensis. What we called Cro-Magnon is now classified as the first modern Homo sapiens.
The green skin is artificially induced. They have the big heads, speech, tool use, and the right parts, and they can make babies with us. They’re just adapted to living in space habitats.
Ladies and gents, I give you Homo sapiens orionsis.
