History[]

The Kleptons were a militaristic race of three-foot-tall aliens from an unnnamed planet who attempted to invade Earth when their world began to drift closer to its sun and became too hot for them. They were defeated by the time traveller known as The Doctor and his alleged 'grandchildren' John and Gillian but the surviving Kleptons (many had died with their homeworld) successfully invaded the world of the Thains instead and built an underwater city. In the 30th century, the Kleptons attacked the Thains with flying machines and mobile creeper plants and enslaved many of them. Again, they were defeated by the Doctor and his companions who happened to be in the area (and, indeed, the era) at the time.

Notes[]

Trivia[]
