The design for the aliens went through quite a few iterations before the final insectoid prawn concept was finalized. Originally, the aliens were conceived as hulking creatures with leathery skin and tentacled faces, and were intended to be performed by actors in creature suits.
The prawn creatures were initially meant to be masters of the tentacle-faced creatures (keeping with the idea that the aliens were slaves). Eventually, the lumbering creatures were dispensed with, the prawn creature design was settled upon, and it was decided that the aliens would be realized via CGI.
