Quote from: Kimarhi on Mar 28, 2021, 03:14:28 AMI've just read the book once so there is quite possibly a passage I skimmed over and didn't register, but I always got the impression that the Spoilerfirst batch of Aliens arrived on the Darkstar and were brought there by Marsalis and that there never was an Alien presence on whatever the planet designation was beforehand. Just the goo. Then crazy woman sets the Aliens loose and they find away to reproduce Alien Isolation style (interesting that no queen is mentioned in Isolation, Cold Forge, or Charybdis yet it seems there are growing alien populations even without them) I also always thought that those first Aliens were the rest of the crew on whatever station they tried to pull the plug on Marsalis. HOWEVER, I'm not sure about that since Crazy woman falls into the goo and does not mutate into a drone. So even though you have a common denominator in the goo being in both places, you get two totally different results Marsalis and what happened to Crazy Woman. Too me it is kind of implied that the other drones were the initial lab crew because it seems Marsalis tries to go out of her way to avoid killing unless its necessary. I'm guessing that some of the goo got some of the crewmates infected as well and they turned and followed Marsalis as being the most dominant praetorian/baby queen whatever you want to call her. If they weren't goo infected crew members then maybe she does have queen functions and can't help herself and infected some refueling station people somewhere or something.[close]

Meaning this' the result of not just Plagiarus Preapotens that your standard Facehugger carries, but the variation that your Royal Facehugger carries, hence the other Aliens recognising Blue as an authority temporarily. (I presume until a Praetorian or Queen got brought into the equation.) If so that means just like we see suggested elsewhere, under the right conditions the standard Facehugger's capable of turning it's standard Plagiarus Preapotens into Royal Plagiarus Preapotens or as dubbed by Blue Marsalis "the Queenscode" that right?

Quote from: Kimarhi on Apr 01, 2021, 10:07:42 AMSpoilerI thought that the facehugger stuff was just basically refined goo. Like it was a finalized version that lead to the xenomorph series. David used the goo to make the Aliens right, or do I need to watch Covenant again. I guess I must have missed where facehugger jizz also has mutagenic properties on its own. Thought it had mutagenic properties because it was finalized black goo.[close]
Quote from: 426Buddy on Apr 01, 2021, 09:49:29 AMSpoilerNo Blue was working with the substance that the facehugger puts in your chest, only she modified it enough to become what she became.She brought some aliens with her, but I assume she laid a ton of eggs before the Marines arrived maybe? I think there was a couple weeks between Noah's distress signal and their arrival. She was looking for the black goo because she thought it would be easier to work with than David's twisted version.

Quote from: SpaceKase on Apr 01, 2021, 05:21:00 PMQuote from: Trash Queen on Apr 01, 2021, 04:48:24 PMThank you for the extensive breakdown.Oh thank you, that's very sweet. I'm just an obsessive nerd, but what good people around these parts aren't?Not too extensive, I'm still not sure who's the puppet master yet, but I think it's SpoilerThein, they provided the info to Haroun in mid July and they contacted Blue and lured her out to Hassanova. Given how fervent Haroun's cousin was about Thein's legitimacy, it made me wonder if they were a shadowy cult organization that Harouns cousin was a member of, but given that Mitchell told Matsushita that the CIA was about to make contact with Blue earlier in the year, I'm wondering if Thein was just the CIA's sockpuppet. But given the universe it could very well be both, there's a lot of culty weirdos out there obsessed with the Aliens.[close]
