The Solanoids are inhabitants of the planet Mercury, and they worship the sun, which provides their sustenance. Their ruler, The Sun King, fears that one day, the sun will die, and he believes that sending all of the other planets in the system into the sun, will prolong its life by providing it fuel. His scientists have perfected technology that allows them to pull the other planets out of their orbit, and draw them to the sun. The Solanoids communicate through mental telepathy and their technology includes force fields and plasma cannons. However, they do not have interplanetary ships, and appear to have little interest in leaving their homeworld, as it is closest to the object of their worship.
