    This is an early milestone in the "Alien Colonists Encountered" statistic and is obtained once you have spoken to 10 aliens (not animals). You can check your progress by pressing start and looking at the Milestones screen. It is near the second entry in the "Journey Milestones" section.

    The easiest way to do this is when you first visit a space station. There should be plenty of aliens there to talk to so you should unlock this pretty early in the game. Shop keepers don't count for this, only the aliens standing around. You can also find encounterable aliens on planets either at trade post or other landing pads.

    Note. The achievement tracker (percentage complete on the Xbox) does not work for any of these achievements. The achievement is for reaching the target milestone and being awarded the title.

    Lord fartamorEvery time I talk to one of the aliens the progress bar doesn't go up, am I doing something wrong?

    KungFuStu72Which progress bar?
    The achievement tracking (achievement app) will not show any progress as the achievement is for reaching "known" status, you've either reached it (100%) or not reached it (0%).
    To see how far along you've come you need to use the in game milestones page which will detail exactly how many aliens you've talked to. This is also displayed when you interact with the trade terminal.
