I'll take a stab
In addition to being a Christian, I am also a Scifi fan so I have thought about this some.
Thing One: God is God no matter where you live or how many arms you have. God's fundamental nature or essence would be the same and if God has revealed Godself to intelligent, self-aware, story-telling creatures on other planets, that which God has revealed will be essentially the same as what is revealled to Earthlings in Jesus of Nazareth.
Thing Two: Christianity is pretty clear that in order for a savior to be helpful to human beings, that savior needs to BE a human being. Presumably, a savior that's helpful to the Vortons would need to be a Vorton.
Thing Three: Christianity is pretty clear that the big problem that requires intervention is our seeming inability not to sin and thereby offend the justice of God. So the Vorton's need for a savior would depend on whether they share that inability (and so require a savior) or if they don't (in which case, they would not.)
I personally think that Heaven is something that human beings can't even begin to imagine. We will all be surprised by who and what we encounter there. I am totally attracted by the notion that unimaginably alien minds and spirits will be there and that we will join our very different voices in praise of the creator of this amazing universe (multiverse?) I sort of like the image of the Bar on Tatoinne also.... hmmmm.... no murders or fist fights I think... certainly no Imperial Storm troopers.
Here is another question: If, as some physicists theorize, we live not in a Uni-verse but in a Multi-verse made up of an infinite number of universes all sort of nested in on themselves in some unimaginable way, will I, when I get to heaven, encounter all the infinite versions of myself? Will we all be somehow integrated into a single entity that reflects our infinitely divergent experiences? Or will we go to our individual uni-heaven which is actually part of a multi-heaven?

Reason: another idea
