The Kulan were a humanoid race who invaded Earth in 2001. They usually invaded a planet by sending the Kulan Advance Evaluation Squad, detached from their main invasion fleet, to see whether the planet was appropriate for invasion.
The Kulan had two hearts, purple blood and skin that was more translucent than that of humans. They also had sharper hearing, thicker skulls and were more durable than humans. The Kulan used mental power to control their ships and magnetic induction as a power source. (PROSE: Escape Velocity)
