Re: Other alien life in the Alien universe?

The alien is far worse than any bioagent known, as it sterilizes all animal life. (A;C dialogue) It also seems to be very limited without hosts... Spore pods... I do like the backbreaker exit... I suspect that the accident of the maker was that it expected die-off, not spore mode.... But, to qoute ...

Re: Other alien life in the Alien universe?

The level of annihilation that biowar of that nature presents needs huge levels of desperation, combined with a high level of depersonalization of the enemy; well more on both than a civil war is likely to generate.. Depends, I think you underestimate how savage civil wars can be, us on a single pl...

Re: Other alien life in the Alien universe?

AC was a good film... right until David turns up... then it is a very swift nose dive. I mean there is no reality where I will accept that android as the creator of the xenomorph. No way, the xenomorph was a creation of the space jockey, no alternatives for me in this regard. As for the Jockeys need...

Re: Other alien life in the Alien universe?

As others have said there clearly is material in both the staple setting and the extra stuff done by other companies. However I know personally I would never have other intelligent life in the setting. The Jockey is the creepiest when it is behind a curtain. Yes there was another space going species...

Re: Alien and Aliens feature two different breeds of xenos

As Riggswolfe pointed out, though, the people and situations between the two movies make it fairly clear that the alien has quite a higher advantage in the first movie than in the second.

Re: CotG - Late Play Through

The moment that happened everyone was 'WTF' it was a shock to see...
