I think it would be cool to see new races like a Medusa race, more city and ship designs like a military rounded one or a slave related one or even a religious one, more extended version with more names types, and for origins i would like one where your nation is founded by and alien invasion of your planet before your a space nation. What do you think, does this need to be add on and if so what are your ideas and thoughts on mine ill add more i think should be official.

New species, name lists, and ship/building types are things that get added in species packs (planetoids, humanoids, lithoids), and so while the odds of getting a specific medusa race are pretty low this sort of content will come out. Generally stellaris alternates minor story/species packs with larger DLC, so it will probably be 2 or 3 DLCs until the next if the trend continues (next should be a story pack, then a major-ish DLC, then a species pack).

An alien invasion pre-spaceflight sounds like a great origin, and I really hope it gets added to the game.

The Medusa is just an idea. i think they need more race variety. its a big universe so any life is possible in any galaxy. in EU4 theirs so many unit packs and other culture add on's why not here. For this game to last and to become more popular it needs more detail everywhere.

I like the idea of a Medusa race, but I wouldn't want it just because its an interesting race, I would want a little more context about them, how do they live? eat? avoid their petrification ability? would it help them in battle? I want the stellaris developers to add in new races but i don't hear much about their context or backstory. I'm always curious as to their way of life.
