Not sure which kids cartoon it was that my daughters were watching but it had an evil hamster who had a robotic suit shaped like a man. The top of the head rolled back to reveal the hamster sitting in a cockpit controlling the suit like it was a mecha. Got me thinking though, the suit not the hamster. Something like this could allow for a non standard sized alien to interact in a galactic civilization were everyone else is roughly human size.
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Encounter suits were also used by the Vorlons in B5

One of my characters is a pike (the fish), he has an exo-suit that looks like a human in a space suit. Where the human head/helmet should be is a fishbowl with Teeth (the pike) swimming it it. The suit is conditioned for his tiny fish-mind. 

Ya, others have seen it around (Storm Cook, MegaMind, etc.) but it was my original back in 1987 when a group of Air Bands performed "Fish Heads". I have a picture around here somewhere....

interesting concept. 

The Bugs in the System creature "Matrix" could use a robot to interact.

A self aware organic brain in a cybot is this by default. And it seems to me that you could do a sathar brain tubed and installed in a robotic chassic like the tubed brain of the sathar in the obelisk in SF-1.

Anne McAffrey Novels: The Ship Who Sang (which I read) and IIRC a follow on was the City that Fought; did this as well with tubed brains of humans.
