kosmici OR obcy
Explanation:
If the context is the Alien series starring Sigourney Weaver, you can either stick with the English term or translate it by "obcy"

In a general context, extraterrestial entities have come, surprisingly, from space (Kosmos,przestrzeń kosmiczna) so they are called "kosmici" (sg. kosmita)
