Re: Rivals over a colony/planet?

Why would Burke need to smuggle a dangerous organism through ICC quarantine if the Company effectively owns the ICC? It's like how the new Colonial Marines book says the Company funds the marines; yet the mission to LV-426 was under military jurisdiction and a corporal could nuke a colony over prot...

Re: XX121 lifespan.

My question was challenging the assertion of "the very core of the Alien concept, as it was once created by Giger". Yeah that's fair too - again, I get what you're saying - and I agreed with it. I don't think the original poster was going full dissertation either - looked like an offhand sort of su...

Re: XX121 lifespan.

My question was challenging the assertion of "the very core of the Alien concept, as it was once created by Giger". He didn't create the concept. He showed us what it looked like. The concept was created by O'Bannon and Shusett. Acid blood was Cobb's idea. Roger Dicken created the final facehugger ...

Re: XX121 lifespan.

Not to downplay his contribution, but what did Giger add beyond the visual? First, he inspired O'Bannon during Jodorowsky's failed DUNE preproduction. O"Bannon was who pushed Giger's work to Ridley Scott because, as he said in an interview - he wrote a movie about a Giger monster. Giger also contri...

Re: Aliens RPG Map Coordinates (including CMOM and DoW locations)

Sorry, I don't have a Mac to test on - but I think there are "Windows emulator" type things like Parallels that could work.

Re: Aliens RPG Map Coordinates (including CMOM and DoW locations)

Cross-posting from the galaxy map thread: I've pasted up a draft of my version of the starmap data with 2D/3D coordinates using Winchell Chung's HabHYG 50ly data.
