Dune is one of the most popular classic science fiction franchises both in books, TV form, and the movies now. But there is one question that has long been nagging fans of this evergreen science fiction universe – and that is, where are the flipping sentient aliens?

In this short 15 minute video, the mighty Quinn attempts to answer that question by an extensive trawl through the books and the hints of life beyond humanity that may exist out in the dark.
