* StarfishAliens: Apparently, all known aliens are EnergyBeings: there is ''one'' race that undergoes a "meat" stage, but ascends late in life, and another that is partially meat.
** The explorers certainly consider the meat this: meat communicate and entertain themselves by squirting air through their meat and flapping their meat at each other, which meat shouldn't be doing '''because it's meat.'''

* EnergyBeings - The meaties are literally the only race that die as meat. One race starts as meat, but eventually "ascend".
* FantasticRacism - In the end, the explorers decide to strike the record of encountering the meaties and declare this sector empty, believing that first contact would be extremely awkward and of little worth. As one of them puts it, "What are we going to say to them? 'Hey, meat, how's it going?'?"

* InvisibleAliens - they've done some abductions, but wiped the abductees' memory.
* {{Squick}} - In-universe: the explorers are completely weirded out and more than a little disgusted at the fact there is sentient, living meat doing ''stuff''.
