Is it really true that the Xenomorph species was originally intended to be a sapient sentient civilization?

In one of the earlier scripts for Alien, yes. The newborns were violent, especially without the "nursery" or their culture to imprint on, but they matured into advanced creatures fairly rapidly.

In the original drafts the Aliens built the temple the eggs were found in.

That concept of the xenomorphs being a civilization seems interesting.

I remember that they eventually lived a scholarly life being mild in nature. Dont ask for a link.

I like the idea. That they have extremely violent offspring and a violent reproduction method (through technically no fault of their own) and then they become this higher sentient advanced being.

So really they would have to trick or lure people or animals to reproduce otherwise they would die out.

This idea and Redlettermedia's Engineer Casino Planet are what fuels my mind.

Ron Cobb related what Dan O'Bannon told him back in 1979 about them living to be intelligent and long lived after they grow out of their adolescent bloodlust.
