Default Hiver inspiration?

I'm sure we've all seen the original "War of the worlds" movie with gene Barry. (Not that ghawdawful Tom Cruise version)

Anyway, there was the line in it where the actress playing the scientist with the atrocious french accent was studying the martian blood and said that the martians may be mental giants but were physically very primitive creatures.

I kind of wondered if that migth have inspired the hivers in traveller, because when you read the hiver background it says they are very primitive physically, not even at the same evolutionary level as, say, a terran dinosaur and much closer to more primitive lifeforms like starfish or mollusks.

Anyone ever hear anything definitve on this?
