The History of Ataegina.


Exclusive history provided by Scott Sigler for his novel Aliens - Phalanx.  HUGE SPOILERS - don't click if you want to read the book for yourself.

Thank you mate.

You're very welcome.

Really great of Scott to provide this. Bravo.

I was very pleasantly surprised.  I emailed him the draft I'd written for any feedback and he sent me a tonne of info.

That was some extensive background! I love it when authors do that sort of background for themselves! Very generous of him to send them across, and very thankful he did! Thanks for the read, SM! Now I wanna re-read the novel...

Sigler's short in Ultimate Prey is a Phalanx sequel.

A Predator(s) turning up on Ateagina seems a natural fit given the type of society living there. Looking forward to it.

Considering that Scott Sigler's story is the sequel to Aliens: Phalanx and that Aliens: Phalanx is canon, does that mean that from now on the Alien and Predator universes are officially the same?

Well stories within license canon will always be separate because a licensee can only play in the very license they pay Disney for, and if you only pay for one, you ain't getting the others.... but within lore, its fair to say anything tied to AvP Phalanx will now be tied to the AvP/Predator lore.  :)

Or Phalanx simply falls under the AvP banner.  Like Fire & Stone or Life & Death.

I don't know, but I feel the whole 'canon' thing is much less defined now under Disney than it was under Fox.

Considering how popular Phalanx was, it makes perfect sense to revisit Ataegina at the first opportunity, and not worry too much about what's canon or not.

I’m an Alien purist who doesn’t collect any AVP books, but I loved Phalanx...
