   So if aliens and humans can't breed how is Vel
there to say that in the first place?  After all he is
half human and half Dorf.  If humans and aliens can't
breed than he shouldn't exist.

  It has been implied that while he is the only
confirmed human/dorf hybrid that more could exist.  It
is just that the environmental opportunity hasn't
existed until recently.  Unless Dorfs and human are
either the same species or something very closely
related.  After all, Vel is fertile.   Wolves and dogs
can breed fertile offspring.   Apparently so can
humans and dorfs.   In which case Dorfans are
basically bigger, stronger, badder humans.  Or maybe
Humans and Dorfs are a special case?
