Aliens possessing technology, cognition and sapience will have, thanks to the physics involved in cognition and evolution, a minimum of an ability to communicate, to pass information in durable form from generation to generation, to sense their environments, to affect their environment, and to reproduce.

Likewise, same said will have needs that must be addressed: food, reproduction, respiration, trace minerals, needed biofluid (usually water). They also need suitable pressures and temperatures.

We expect that most will need socialization and recreation, too, but those are far less provable. (Most mammals engage in play; many birds seem to engage in play. Reptiles don't seem to,)

So, given the needs, an alien should be relatively sensible.
