There were at least three types of Viperox:
 
There were at least three types of Viperox:
 
* Viperox Battle Drones were the soldiers and warriors of the Viperox, travelling in swarms of thousands. They had flat plates, four long mandibles and clawed hands, which could shoot out spines which exploded on impact. They had great strength, were resistant to bullets, had retractile wings and could dig through solid concrete. The battle drones were aggressive and would hunt for practice as well as food.

* Above the battle drones were the Leaders, such as Lord [[Azlok]]. They were the smartest and controlled the rest of the Viperox. The lords were shorter than the drones, with more rounded plates, hands instead of claws and [[human]]-like mouths. They also had four wings, allowing them to fly.

* The [[Viperox Queen]]s were producers of eggs for the Viperox. They laid eggs by the thousands, allowing for the creation of armies. Though similar in appearance to the lords, the Queens were much larger, as well as having large abdomens swollen with eggs and four legs instead of two.

The Viperox created the [[Viperox Empire]]. During an invasion, the Viperox landed with a small number of Viperox and a queen, who would lay eggs. The eggs would hatch into battle drones, who would make up the invasion force. ([[TV]]: ''[[Dreamland (TV story)|Dreamland]]'')

In the [[1940s]], the Viperox were on the brink of war with the [[Grey alien]]s. The ambassador [[Seruba Velak]] attempted to negotiate in [[1947]], but was shot down by [[space pirate|pirates]] and [[Roswell crash|crashed on Earth]]. The negotiation fell through, and the war began, leading to victories by the Viperox.

In [[1958]], the Viperox, led by Lord [[Azlok]], came to [[Roswell]] following [[Rivesh Mantilax]], who had created a genetic weapon that could destroy their entire race. They set up a queen under the ground, laying eggs for an invasion force. Lord Azlok pretended to join forces with Colonel [[Stark (Dreamland)|Stark]], claiming that the weapon could be used on [[Russia]]. Lord Azlok also obtained an [[android]] from the [[Alliance of Shades]], which he used to track down the weapon. By following the [[Tenth Doctor]], Lord Azlok and Colonel Stark were able to get the weapon, but after the Doctor explained the Viperox's plan, the army severed ties with the Viperox. When the Viperox attacked, the Doctor was able to reprogram Rivesh's weapon, making it target the Viperox's nervous system and create an annoying supersonic sound. The Viperox were driven off and returned to their planet.

According to the Doctor, the Viperox, once they reached the end of their evolution cycle, would become a peaceful species. ([[TV]]: ''[[Dreamland (TV story)|Dreamland]]'')

:''The Doctor frequently mentioned that the Viperox should not be destroyed as they would eventually become peaceful. Whether this is speculation or the true future is unknown, but considering how much the Doctor has explored the timestream, the latter seems likely.''
