I will leave when you explain the shape-shifting pods with a coherent in-universe answer.

Asthetics, the director wanted a particular desifn but its suppose to be the same pods.

That's the opposite of an in-universe answer.

True.

In verse, David was secretly on board with two eggs and moved the bodies to new pods. :p

Alien tissue began to integrate itself into the molecular structure of the cryo-tubes, as it finds certain types of polymers incredibly smooth and sexy. This union of biological and technological materials transformed the cryo-tubes into Alien techno-wombs. Harsh, pale, and supple.

Alas, poor Newt, drowned in the amniotic xemen.

This actually sounds closer to Giger’s designs, that the Xenomorph is cyborg, machine and organic.

Rewatching Alien3 and I saw one egg. So either its twin facehuggers or a superhugger.

Saw anyone planting any eggs?

Or pods morphing?

Don't we need a thread for the additional eggs?

I admire it's purity. A survivor. Unclouded..by consensus, remorse, or delusions of finality.

Is there a place though where Kradan and [cancerblack] can discuss pod-morphing without unnnecessarily derailing this thread?

For the newbie (who, I might point out, remains unbaptized by SM so far)...

It's not even really a "new ability," just an extension of what we've already seen.  The eggs obviously start out small and develop over time within the queen's ovipositor, right?

My theory just speculates that tearing herself free of her egg sac left the queen with a gaping hole in her abdomen and her "ovaries" exposed.  As she fought Ripley in the Sulaco's hangar bay, at least one of her premature eggs fell out of this abdominal cavity and oozed through the floor-grates where it congealed into place and took root.

In keeping with the aliens' physical hardiness, this proto-egg was able to survive outside of the queen's "womb" and even grow on its own to full-size during the Sulaco's three-week journey back to Earth.  Mind you, this process would be relatively slow compared to the aliens' usual accelerated growth rate.
