As a main player, before allies are invited, you may possess any one other player except your opponent in order to force that player to ally with you when it is his or her turn to do so. That player must send as many ships as possible, up to the number of ships you have in the encounter, but he or she is not required to abandon any colonies to do so.
When using your power, you may draw six cards from the deck to possess instead of another player's hand. If a possessed card would return to your hand after use, it does so. At the end of the encounter, return any remaining possessed cards to the top of the deck in any order.

Demon is an alien with the power to Possess. It has had a few powers over its existence but has always been able to possess another player in some form.

The FFG version of this alien was originally only available as a promo given to attendees of CosmicCon 2014. It was later re-released as an inclusion in FFG's 42nd Anniversary Edition.

Edition Power Text History
Eon If the Demon were neither a main player nor ally, after cards were selected but before they were revealed the Demon could take the offensive player's place in the challenge. The original offense would return his or her tokens to bases and the Demon would put an equal number of his or her own tokens from his or her bases into the challenge. The outcome of the encounter now counted for the Demon with regard to rewards but counted for the original offense with regard to continuing his or her turn.
FFG You have the power to Possess. As a main player, before allies are invited, you may use this power to take possession of the hand of any other player except your opponent. Place those cards facedown on this sheet. They are not part of your hand, but you may use cards from here as though they were in your hand. If a card played from this sheet would return to your hand after use, return it to its previous owner instead. At the end of the encounter, return any cards remaining on this sheet to their previous owner. Hailing from deep within the core of a molten planet, a race of Demons was exiled from their original galaxy for unprincipled opportunism. Knowing their mere presence saps others' will to win, they now seek Cosmic vengeance.
