It may be an off topic discussion... But still. It bugs me a little and Maybe someone has an answer for me...
(This is purely theoretical and ment, well for discussion =) )
We're human. We call ourself "humans" when we talk about our species. Well, in the TV-show the Aliens are called the V's. Well it's the Name the humans gave them a couple of weeks ago when they officially "landed" on earth. In the story the V's have been long before that on earth.(THey didn't know the people on earth would call them the Vs) And yet, when they show privat conversations of the V's where they call themselfes the V's. But usually one would't change their habit of calling themself ... (i don't know how they call themself- that's my point!) just because someone else does . Especially when they haven't got much contact with humans, because the V's just got their visas few hours ago.. Pretty much The only thing officially connecting them with earth were the news.
They're not humans. They have to have a name for their species, don't they? And isn't it weird not to use that name among themselfes?
