The Navarinos were a race of vaguely humanoid aliens from the planet Navarro. They possessed time travel technology, which they used for amusement.


Slightly shorter than humans, Navarinos appeared much like giant starfish with five appendages covered in suckers. Navarinos required advanced disguises in order to pass themselves off as humans. Navarinos also had high metabolisms, easily overheating and becoming exhausted after short periods of activity. Navarinos spoke in a warbling voice, but were capable of speaking human languages. (TV: Delta and the Bannermen)
