    Yeah kind of.  It's also the kind of gesture you make to cover a burp.  But you can see him breathing in other scenes.  He sweats while in the science blister.  He swallows after his head's chopped off.  That plus Bishops breathing being the only sound when he's crawling down to the uplink tower would suggest these processes are programmed and involuntary.  Ash doesn't have to sweat when there's no one around to suspect he's a robot.  Everyone knows Bishop is a robot, so why bother with breathing?  (Rhetorical).

    Great podcast.
    Androids breathing is an odd thing but David and Walter played the flute which would require some form of breath.
    I think Marcus was described as having pheromones as well, I might be wrong but I remember that other than his inability to digest anything and inhuman abilities, he was made very close to human and had pain receptors as well though I think only Blue had that on when she was in control.

    Our podcast on the book is now up! https://www.avpgalaxy.net/2018/08/23/alien-the-cold-forge-avp-galaxy-podcast-71/

    Great podcast guys! Javier certainly won’t be typing up another password (Hicks you cracked me up with that comment!). Hopefully Alex gets another crack at an Alien novel (or short story). I’m all for letting the talented writers return as I’m happy with Lebbon’s 4 novels and 2 shorts (Out of the Shadows, The Rage War, Sprite, and Devil Dogs) also pleased with Dan Abnett’s works (Isolation, Life and Death, and Reaper) and I’d add James Moore to the list with Sea of Sorrows, Distressed and the recently released Hunters and Hunted. I’m excited to see what Titan has lined up for 2019. I’d be interested to know how many copies sold of this book (or any of the other Alien novels for that matter).

    It is all about execution though and unlike Hadley's hope. Sevastopol would be a more interesting place as it was already falling apart prior to the Alien arrival. There was smuggling and all sorts of underhanded behavior going on and then there is the working joes, which I think was a great addition to the franchise.

    Knowing the end is not always a bad thing though, sometimes it adds some poignancy.

    Is that flirting?
    Coming from a fella married for over 30 years, sad to say, "No, ma'am." But in light of your response to the writing contest, I was pleasantly surprised to see you making some interesting connections across the storylines.


    Does that answer your question?

    I didn't think of the connections as anything other than my own hypothesis, no matter how plausible.
    Thanks for the compliment though.
