Haha, I actually like AR. Different tone of course, but still good.
I also liked A:R, but it's definitely a different approach to the whole setting. Still jump-scare action horror, still 80s style low cybernetic Cyberpunk.
But I did not interpret it as psionic abilities giving Ripley the ability to feel the queen, but more like pheromones like ants and bees.
I can't see pheromones coordinating the XX121s in ALIENS with the level seen; they don't work fast enough.
Natural radio, perhaps? They do bioprocess silicon, and so might also be able to bioprint circuitry.
Or ultrasound. Or elephant-like infrasound.
Me? I'll stick with telempathy. (a limited form of telepathy.)
