Vogons are a vile, nasty, bureaucratic species who destroy the Earth to make way for a hyperspace bypass in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Vogons come from the planet Vogsphere. Vogons are said to not actually be evil, but they are callous, bureaucratic, mean-tempered and not one of them would lift a finger to save their Mother from the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal, unless they had the necessary paperwork. The leader of the Vogon constructor fleet is Prostetnic Vogon Jeltz, while a higher-ranking Vogon bureaucrat, Kwaltz, is his immediate superior.
Vogons are said to be the worst shots in the galaxy. It is said that they best way to get a drink out of one is to stick your finger up its throat. They sometimes feed criminals to the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal.
