: What are you talking about. It's very canon that the Pfhor are insects. All
What do you think that head is, a hollow cockpit? Those things bleed yellow in M1, you know.
Anyway, I find it absurd to declare it canon that they are insects when we are talking about extraterrestrial species that have no common ancestry with even the oldest, single-cellular life forms on Earth. Unless the spore theory gives you that tiny sliver of hope that, maybe, the same species of meteor-riding germs in the cosmic exchange got to land on both Earth and Pfhor-prime when the meteor split into two pieces and went on their own journeys of several millions or billions of years to each planet. Hmm, maybe pfhor prime was just a little bit closer at the meteor-split-point, explaining why the pfhor have advanced thousands of years ahead of humanity.
Still, the chance of them coincidentally sharing birds, insects, and reptiles is infinitesimal, as orders of species like chordates and arthropods only exist together despite being VASTLY unrelated because the development of each of those physiologies goes extremely far back near the beginning of the evolution of life on earth when life forms were much simpler, and those forms happened to be good at surviving in Earth's environment and ecosystem (there's this weird mushroom-eyed creature that went extinct at that time that could have given us a bunch of new odd-looking species. If only it survived, then we can point and laugh at how funny its descendants look).
We have NO IDEA what kind of environment or ecosystem the pfhor homeworld has! It could be a place completely unsuitable to insects or birds in its primeval times. The pfhor might have also evolved differently when they became a spacefaring species, given what Leela says about them being adapted to low-grav environments. Oh, and this is all completely overlooking that THESE THINGS HAVE A SECOND BRAIN IN THEIR HEAD-STEM!!!
(oh, and three eyes, obviously, but even that mutant fish on the simpsons achieved that)
HOW IN THE SEVEN LH'OWON HELLS CAN THESE THINGS BE EQUATED WITH ARTHROPODS, LET ALONE INSECTS!!!!!! (and, by the way, part of the classification of insect is having six legs)
