The Ovamorphs are inorganic

Their is nothing that supports them as being organic. The only time they a referred to as being organic is in the first movie with Kane, and all he did is look at it. In that time the movie was made the only things that could be alive in real life, that was excepted by science, is organic life. Now it is becoming exceptable by science that inorganic life can exist besides the fact some was found on earth and it is part arsenic based.

Mate, you can easily tell that they're organic because you can see easily they're made out of flesh (or, at the very least, a flesh-like material), and not chitin; which can only mean that the eggs ARE organic, even though adult Xenomorphs apparently aren't. Just because adult Xenomorphs are inorgaic does NOT mean the same applies for their eggs as well, so please provide proof of your claim before you post again that Xenomorph eggs are inorganic.

  • Just because it is fleshy, Warriors are also, that doesn't instantly mean it is organic. What makes things organic or inorganic is if they have Carbon in their biology or not. Xenomorphs have no Carbon in them, they are made up of inorganic compounds and materiel's, lots apparently that can not be identified.

Okay, so you've said how it could be inorganic, and have proven that we don't know if it is organic, but you haven't proven that we know it's really inorganic. Therefore, I'd say we keep "inorganic" and "organic" out of the article for now. TroopDude (talk) (Contribs) 22:26, August 22, 2012 (UTC)

No I just said it is inorganic, nothing supports them being organic. These unknown elements are very similar to silicon. Their morphology is also heavily Silicon polymer based. If these elements had carbon or the element carbon was part of the biology,it would be identifiable. The creatures biology is H2So4 / HF [H20]

  • H2So4 is Sulfuric acid which has no carbon in it.
  • HF is Hydrogen fluoride which has no carbon in it.
  • [H20] is Water, it doesn't have carbon in it.

As troop suggested, best keep the words organic and inorganic out of the page. and TI154th, do not edit war. not going to tell you again. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 23:25, August 23, 2012 (UTC)

Your leaving canon information out of this article by not saying it is inorganic.

No, because it is still disputed and therefore to prevent edit wars, it will be kept out of the page until resolved. and sign your posts. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 23:35, August 23, 2012 (UTC)


Where and when was it stated that Xenomorph Eggs are called Ovamorphs? TroopDude (talk) (Contribs) 19:15, August 30, 2012 (UTC)

I have heard the name before but I cannot remember if it was for the facehugger or egg, check google to see about it, also note that we should go by the name that the filmakers call it, not outside sources or fans. The only time we should ever name something ourselves is if there is no name given by the creators and even we would have to go to the closest source to find a name before doing it ourselves. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 21:33, August 30, 2012 (UTC)

I can't find any canon source on google that states the Eggs are called Ovamorphs, so I'm changing the article back to Egg. TroopDude (talk) (Contribs) 21:50, August 30, 2012 (UTC)

Name (continued)

Is there any reason this page is called "Xenomorph Egg"? No other creatures in the Alien/Predator franchise uses eggs to reproduce, so is the Xenomorph part of the title necessary? None of the other Xenomorph-related pages include the word, so why here?--Leigh Burne (talk) (Contribs) 11:03, March 15, 2013 (UTC)

I agree with Leigh Burne, wouldn't a name like Egg (Xenomorph) make more sense, since Hive (Xenomorph) is used for the Hive page.  Toa Quarax (talk) (Contribs) 02:15, July 5, 2013 (UTC)

I'm surpised with the date on Leigh's post, If I had noticed this sooner, I would have added my own two cents here, I am not sure who changed the page but I will check to see who it was and for what reason. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 17:15, July 6, 2013 (UTC)

Ultimatex changed the name from Egg to Xenomorph Egg without giving a reason. It happen right after someone changed the page to Ovomorph and then back again to Egg. Actually shouldn't this page be name Ovomorph? Toa Quarax (talk) (Contribs) 20:52, July 15, 2013 (UTC)

I'm not sure. While the Colonial Marines Tech Manual does indeed call them Ovomorphs, the films refer to them simply as Eggs. Do any other sources use the Ovomorph name?--Leigh Burne (talk) (Contribs) 07:41, July 16, 2013 (UTC)
Apparently Aliens: Colonial Marines also uses the Ovomorph name Toa Quarax (talk) (Contribs) 16:42, July 16, 2013 (UTC)
I need to play through ACM again, I'll try and remember to look out for it. As it stands I'm on the fence, I'm happy with either name for the page title. So we probably need a wider opinion to decide whether the article should be changed.--Leigh Burne (talk) (Contribs) 09:02, July 17, 2013 (UTC)

Name (continued again)

I kind of forgot about this one, but once again, would it not be an idea to simply call this page "Egg"? I can't think of any prominent eggs in the AVP universe that aren't from Xenomorphs. Plus, this is a wiki dedicated to the AVP franchise, so it should be fairly obvious we're talking about the aliens.--Leigh Burne (talk) (Contribs) 10:27, November 11, 2013 (UTC)

Well, unless some expanded material also has creatures coming from eggs than I can't see why it shouldn't be changed to just Eggs, however, it may be worth discussing as I believe Toa mentioned that the eggs had another name as well. Need a source for that though, he said it was mentioned in A:CM. The Cruentus (talk) (Contribs) 17:02, November 11, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, in the Audio Log "Xenomorph Life Cycle Notes" ("What follows are my notes the xenomorphs observed life cycle. Beginning in the ovamorph, or “egg ” stage"). It is spelt with an "a" here, but in the Tech Manual it is spelt "ovomorph" with an "o" (page 150).--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 20:25, November 11, 2013 (UTC)
The ovomorph name from the Tech Manual is already referenced on the page. The altered spelling in A:CM raises an issue, but maybe that could just be mentioned in the opening paragraph; the Fiorina "Fury" 161 article has quite a list of alternate spellings, we could use that as a template.
As for the page name, maybe we could name it "Ovomorph (Egg)", in keeping with the Xenomorph (Alien) page?--Leigh Burne (talk) (Contribs) 09:11, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
"Ovomorph (Egg)" seems like a good idea for the name, since most people probably wouldn't know what "Ovomorph" means.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 16:03, November 12, 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I suggested keeping "(Egg)" in the title for that very reason. I'll go ahead with the rename now.--Leigh Burne (talk) (Contribs) 09:01, November 13, 2013 (UTC)
"Yeah, in the Audio Log "Xenomorph Life Cycle Notes" ("What follows are my notes the xenomorphs observed life cycle. Beginning in the ovamorph, or “egg” stage"). It is spelt with an "a" here, but in the Tech Manual it is spelt "ovomorph" with an "o" (page 150)."
I just checked this audio log in Aliens: Colonial Marines and in the subtitles ovomorph was definitely spelt with an o...--Leigh Burne (talk) (Contribs) 19:18, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
I just checked too and Leigh's right, it's spelt with an o. Guess the transcript in the ACM Audio Log category and the comment in the section below are wrong.--Toa Quarax (Talk) (Contribs) 23:40, November 19, 2013 (UTC)


In the game Aliens: Colonial Marines in one of the Audio logs it talks abut the eggs and refers to them as Ovamorphs. 19:39, July 9, 2013 (UTC)Shadowofunicron
The Colonial Marines Technical Manual clearly spells it Ovomorph with an "o", and the book is referenced on the page. Is it actually spelt on-screen with an "a"? Personally at least, I'd take the book over the game.--Leigh Burne (talk) (Contribs) 07:41, June 24, 2013 (UTC)
Your right i made a typo 19:39, July 9, 2013 (UTC)Shadowofunicron
