You're being a good kind of necrophile. Which doesn't leave me cold, mind you!

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

If you ever find yourself in need of a safe space then you’re probably going to have to stop calling yourself a social justice warrior. You cannot be a warrior and a pansy at the same time.   Mike Adams (RIP Mike)

Out of dumb curiosity, does anyone regularly play non-human races in space 4X games?

I play regularly different races. Right now it's the space babes in Polaris Sector. I have a preference for diplomatic or scientific races but try other races as well.

Distant Worlds 2 - Dev Diary #1
Man, there are some good games (fingers crossed) coming. Really looking forward to DW2, KSP2 and 3 from Microprose... The Mighty 8th, TF Admiral & Sea Power. Good times ahead!

As I am of an age where I wake up feeling barely human playing an alien of dubious looks is anything but a big step... ::)

I will admit I tend to play humans. I don't know why. I just do.

I have thought about something different not human, maybe a variation - humanoid.

Distant Worlds Extended Universe has a LOT - of races to try out.

But with Distant Worlds 2, I am liking what I see I am willing to wait- because I want them to get this right.
