i think that since they came from there too it's easier (or more natural/logic) to assume that they were antarians too. because it's easy to assume it If they weren't then someone would have explained it.RoswellOracle wrote:Well, just because the pod squad was from Antar, doesn't mean the shapeshifters were also from there. They could have come from another planet that the Antarians explored. We just don't know.
Langley was even programmed to obey to the king (we don't know if Nacedo was the same i will never understand although someone could argue that in some scenes he did follow Max's direct orders. Some people also think that Langley was the real protector while Nacedo wasn't or he had another role) and if i'm not wrong he referred to Antar as his home planet (the fact that he didn't like it and he likes earth better is another question)
Then we really don't know so much about those people but i personally think that the assumption that Zan&co were completely and totally different (and that the protectors came from another planet) is way bigger than assuming that all the antarians have more or less the same basic form with some changes. At least with what we actually have.
This when we talk about the canon. Fanfictions can give you more freedom though, since many things weren't so explained people can create their own version of Antar. (but personally i cringe a bit when people describe them as humans in fanfictions for what i know they could kiss each other using tails and they talk using the nose LOL but i understand the romantic idea that the aliens are like us for we humans it isn't so easy to imagine a world that is totally different to ours where what is natural for them it's extremely weird for us).
ps: in the cartoon opening theme from "i married an alien" they represented Max&Co with the generic alien form the writers really weren't that original.
