For me, a alien race does not have to be similar at something we already know.
For example, for a warrior race, i'd prefer a race who come from a planet with high gravity or a toxic planet and who have developed a strong body defense or similar.
My 2 cents...
Recall races evolve based on successful genetic mutations. It would not be far-fetched to have some simularities from one planet to another, simply from the fact that this implies a successful genetic mutation.
Note I am not saying ALL evolution would be identical, but seeing something similar, even in some features can and should be expected.
Are you implying that in our Galaxy, the same, programmed genetic material got spread and similar genetic mutations should be happening everywhere?
I'm pretty sure he's just talking about parallel evolution.
