"and then a shivan comes along!"
My thought is this...


They live inside some sort of nebula environment because that is the most suitable environment for them. Notice in FS2 that they mostly gathred in nebulas. They use the sun to blow up the knossos devices that lead to their homeworld or whatever. In my book of theories.

Its also got a canon capable of hitting targets hundreds, if not thousands, of lightyears away nearly instantaneously. Its even capable of causing stars to go supernova. (source: "Agents of Chaos II: Jedi Eclipse, part of the New Jedi Order series of novels.)

Yeh, that's an idea I suppose - but then again, in FS1, we didn't have nebulae.

Pnaaaag?
What I don't get, if the Shivans were just afraid of aliens:
1. why do they keep attacking everyone else?
2. why are they still afraid after being the only known species with the ability to blow up planets, stars, etc.? They're obviously the big kids on the block.

I think the idea advanced by the Ancients monologue is supposed to be the canon one, although humans could also just be in season every 32 years...
