I got some vouchers for Waterstones book store for christmas, and bought the Ultimate Alien Anthology for the D20
Even though I have never played D20, I got it for the information on the Aliens in Episodes 1 and 2.

There is a site called The Rebellion
www.verminary.com/rebellion/
That has converted D20 to D6 from the older Alien Anthology

but while reading through it I noticed that most Alien species that have extra or less skills than their D6 versions, but are mentioned in the West End Games sourcebookes but not in their skills.

There is around 180 Aliens in this book
Here are a few examples from well known aliens that are in the Rancor Pit Archives.

Rodians :-

Search : +2 bonus to search
Tracking : Rodians recieve Search : Tracking as a free skill

Twi'lek :-

Resilient : Twi'leks recieve a +1 bonus to Stamina
Low-Light Vision : Twi'leks can see twice as far as normal
in dim and retain the ability to distinguish colour and detail

Iotrans :-

Martial Prowess : +1 on Melee combat / Parry
Tactics : +2D Bonus
Free Skill : Firearms

Have any of you thought about incorporating some D20 into D6

I've often thought about getting some of the D20 books, just for the information from the new movies, and converting it to D6 rules.

Converting ships and weapons are pretty easy, but I find converting the aliens rather difficult. About the only handy thing I get from the D20 stuff is the info.
