(I hope no one has done this before, this is my first post here, so please be considerate) What is your favorite Yautja from the books, games, movies, or expanded universe? I'd love to hear what you have to say. Just state the name, where the character is from, and the reason why they are your favorite.
What's on your mind?
Hypothetical Question: If Xenomorphs appeared on Earth, could we deal with it without wrecking huge portions of Earth?
100 drone and 1 queen arrive in our world, and make their hive on a remote coast of australia. the local authorities will only realize that there is something wrong after 6 months, but they don't know what it is, they will just investigate the occurrence. could we deal with it?
how deadly and dangerous would they be?
In Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, and Resurrection it is made clear the Aliens mysteriously originate from the engineer juggernaut. Of course we know David made them on paradise and they eventually get placed on 426 sometime after covenant and before Alien 1979 but since they are introduced to the rest of mankind by the events of the first movie we'll consider that as their origin in the bigger picture.
Anyways, in Alien 1, 2, 3, 4 all the Aliens seen are descended from the population of eggs in that hanger, and the plot revolves around WY' desperate attempt to secure them because of both their potential for profit and - RARITY - keyword right there. From the perspective of the movies it seems like that's the only place we, humanity, and specifically weyland-yutani, know they came from/inhabit. and because of that rarity they do anything to preserve them (trying to bribe ripley at the end of alien 3 because her chestburster is seemingly the only alien left after hadleys hope and the derelict getting blown up, The united systems cloning ripley 200 years later, so on) So from the perspective of the films it is a self evident truth that Xenomorph XX121 was only found on that hanger, based off the lineage of the Alien going from Hangar -> Hadleys hope -> Sulaco -> Fiorina 161 [goes extinct here] -> gets cloned and dying off again. We never see any aliens escape this series of events and Weyland Yutanis #1 priority on this population makes it clear this is their only shot at getting the alien, meaning it's the only alien population.
In the expanded universe; books, comics, etc. We see stories taking places between and after the events of the first 3 films involving WY using aliens, a big plothole as it makes no sense for them to secure ripley's chestburster after Aliens when they already have populations on places like: The cold forge, pala station, epsilion station, the colony ship that crashed into ataegina and started the alien outbreak we see in Aliens: phalanx, pretty much all alien encounters after the movie aliens involving, well aliens. How did they get the eggs for those places if it wasn't the derelict? if the derelict wasn't the only source of the Alien why did WY try so hard to preserve the Aliens and their descendants that originated from there when they could've used whatever source of eggs they had for katanga refinery or the cold forge?
I can't be the only one to notice this gaping goatse plothole.
I know the conestoga and bougainville classes which both seem to be attack/transport, are there any known classes outside of transport like assault classes?
I first started editing after noticing a grammatical error on a page, now I find it very enjoyable. I was editing the page on the crusher alien variant and tried adding an image of it from Alien: Fireteam Elite, but could only edit images that were already present or remove them. Could any of the other editors here help me with this?
Hi everyone. I'm currently putting together a video series on the Alien franchise and its links to other films. This is an idea I've had for several years now and it's a topic that seems to have been missed by the wider community, so I aim to fix that.
The video basically explains how the films of the Alien series, the Predator series, the Blade Runner films including the spin off Soldier, and the original Total Recall, are all within a single continuity, alongside explanations for how these films can work even with the potential canon breaks of the Alien prequels.
This is a genuine thing that I've researched and looked into, and aims to stick only to in-universe explanation rather than any level of "head canon", although obviously certain leaps in logic require a level of filling in the gaps. The eventually goal is to just raise awareness of this and hopefully pass it on up the chain from my film contacts all the way to someone who can actually make sure this isn't undone by future films, because it's currently sitting together well and I would hate to see it fall apart because of one director or one film that didn't stick to it.
My question to the members of this Fandom is this:
What potential issues, canon discrepancies, and timeline issues do you see with the idea that these films of four franchises, are actually within a shared universe?
I want to hear every argument, every potential problem, so that I can put them into my working and help iron out these potential problems early on.
I've already found and answered a ton of these problems, but it's always worth finding others before they litter the comments lol
Thanks guys, and I'll post a link to the video on here once I'm done, for everyone to check out.
Hey guys, so I haven't watched any of the films yet, but I was wondering: Are there any PG-13 cuts or editions of any of the films? Something like that would be helpful, at least for me. Thanks in advance.
When Ripley was about to escape the ship and found the alien, why did she run away and try to stop the destruction, instead of using her flamethrower on him?
she could have simply abandoned the ship, and the alien would have stayed inside alone, it was going to be very simple and there would be no need to almost die in the explosion.
Can anyone give an overview of the nations, politics, borders, and conflicts on Earth and in space?
I'd take any historical information, but the closer to 2183 the better.
Trying to research with the wiki has been difficult. There's lots of stub articles with nothing but real world information.
How can The Predator (2018) be canon if Blade Runner takes place in 2019? This seems like a huge oversight to me and I fear the new Alien series will continue this error. Does this mean the Blade Runner connection established in the original Blade Runner and Alien films, along with the background Engineer Replicant in 2049, be retconned quietly, or are there ways around this?
I can't find on Google who's the actress who does the voice of the atmosphere processor In "Aliens"... in J.W.Rinzler's "The making of Aliens", page 260, says James Cameron added the female voice like last minute, as a tie-in to "Alien"'s Mother, but no mention of whose voice it is... also no mention of her at the credits. Who's she?
I may have missed or forgotten something, but in the novel, there is a section where Ahiliyah, Brandun, and Creen travel to Keflan hold. There they discover the hold has been evacuated, and find the corpse of a Xenomorph with a ridged head.
This is remarked as the first time (in 5 or 6 runs) the trio had ever seen an alien with a ridged head, as the ones that prowl the surface (dead or alive) have all had smooth heads. After this point, the significance of "demons" with smooth or ridged scalps is never mentioned again.
I believe the in-universe explanation for aliens with ridges is that they have reached maturity, and this usually occurs within a couple of weeks. Does this mean that all the aliens hunting people on Ataegina's surface have been less than a few weeks old? Because this would imply a lot more people were being abducted than first-thought if hundreds of aliens on the surface were still young.
Is this a glitch or something? Walked around this entire map floor and seen nothing that leads me to where this collectable is. The level above the one I'm on, doesn't have it and I wanna start my back tracking already but trying to find this one is holding me up.
Please if someone could help me out here.
Can anyone explain the ending of Alien :Isolation?
Did xenomorphs go extinct between avp 2 and alien covenant? I saw this on a video but don't know if its true
