The Vrellnexians are an insectoid race that hail from the planet Vrellnex the fifth planet from the Star Cetsin. There are estimated to be about 6.4 billion in existence. They are a warp capable species with access to starships and are capable of interdimensional travel. They are involved in the intergalactic slave trade as they are know for capturing aliens and selling them.[1]


The Vrellnexians have a civilization based on the typical communal insect societies, such as those of the bees, ants and even the Brood. The Queens are the absolute rulers, while the drones do all the work. They also have developed advanced technology allowing them to leave their homeworld.[1] They have total commitment to the goals of their race virtually no concept of individuality. Ruthless in the pursuit of their goals.[2]

Sssth Alliance

They later met another race, the reptilian Sssth, and formed an alliance. They pooled their resources to enslave and sell intelligent beings from other worlds, using the conquered planet "Golden Star" as a base."[3]

Invasion of Asgard

They once happened upon Asgard and tried to place the Asgardians into bondage. They took them to the golden star. The Vrellnexians put Odin and the other Asgardians up for auction. Thor and his allies arrived to free his people but were imprisoned too. He later was able to free himself and his friends when the leader of Sssth tried to take control of the planet from the Vrellnexian.[4]

Later Appearances

Per Epoch's words, the Vrellnexian paradigm "states that every single action by every single organism causes reality to diverge within its own phenomenal field creating interference patterns between adjoining fields."[5]



The Vrellnexians are purple skinned with two compound red eyes and Three fingers (with opposable thumbs) on each of their foremost two pairs of limbs. They have three corresponding toes on their feet. The average height is around 5'5. The Vrellnexians stand on their hindmost pair of limbs. The Vrellnexians differ widely in appearance. Some of the are winged and can fly.[1]
