I seem to remember Kato losing it coming onto the home straight at Suzuka and hitting the wall on the left side which was only a few meters from the track edge with no run off area. This was indeed the reason Suzuka was dropped from the calender and an embarrasment for Honda as they own the circuit. Still an awesome track tho'. The Alien term is indeed the gang of 4 in present day GP's that Sick mentioned but the term I think originated in Spain where Kenny Roberts Sr. was referred to as "el extraterrestre" or the alien.
