Not one of forty or so human races.

I know that a pamphlet called 'Aliens for Traveller' was distributed in 1981.

Which races were part of published Traveller before that pamphlet?

When did Droyne, the Hiver/Hivers, Aslan, Vilani, etc. first make published appearances?

I'm also interested in any races appearing in Judges Guild and other third-party publications, which might have been later excluded from the OTU.
I don't recall there being any when the game first came on the scene ... erm, yeah, I think there was that "ancient" lizard race with Shadows ... Aslan were mentioned in Mission on Mithril per the cave carving event. By 81 Aslan and Vargr, and I think some mention of the Zhos. Not much beyond that. Or so I recall.

I'm sure I'll get corrected.
