Great Janitor: Most believable alien in science fiction...Well, if the ones that just aren't possible are:

Xindi Aquatic (and any other aquatic race)
"God" from Star Trek V
Klingons (the fighting would pretty much limit how far they'd advance)
Pakleds (too stupid to get into space)
the Space Dinosaurs from that one episode of Star Trek: Voyager
Kazon (L.A. Gangs in space, even with their back story of having stolen all their tech from the Trabe still isn't possible on a long term scale since they'd have no knowledge for repairs, or ability to refuel or rearm weapons)
Ocampa (females only have one child, and they mate with one person for life.  So barring any untimely accidents and if the population is perfectly 50% female and no homosexuality, each generation is 50% less than the previous generation.  Not to mention that 9 year life span thing).
Those bird people from the Voyager episode "Ex Post Facto" (A bird race that evolves to be mammalian who's only trace of avian roots are pointless feathers on the head.  Yes, I know at this point I've done a good job of trashing early Voyager).
Any race, ANY race from any science fiction series where the female isn't a mammal but has tits.
The race from Enterprise where the female got Trip pregnant.  Aliens can't get a gender that can't get pregnant pregnant.  Also, why would the female have tits when it was Trip who was growing nipples?
Xenomorph.  They are a silicon based life form who reproduces by getting the other races to reproduce.  Ignoring that stomach acid would destroy the egg, carbon based life forms can't support the growth of a silicon based life form.
Races with covered up mouths, stupid looking bumpy foreheads or silly noses (Cardassian, Klingon, Bajorians, plenty of Trek aliens of the week)
Crystaline Entity (a space born creature that evolves to travel space to eat planets, WTF?)
The Voyager alien race in the episode 'Cathexis' where they where an energy race living in a nebula that ate living neural energy (Look, why wo ...

Your anti-tit agenda sickens me.

I'm very pro-tit.  It just doesn't make sense for non-mammals to have mammary glands.

Did any of the characters/sources you cited ever say "These are mammary glands"?  No.  Avian/reptilian/amphibian/robotic species are just as entitled as we are to have two sexy, symmetrically-placed lumps on their females' chests. What they're used for is none of our business.  Check your mammalian privilege.
