Quote from: Local Trouble on Nov 19, 2023, 02:58:39 AMWait, are they being called dog catchers in-universe now too?
I mean I'd be pretty okay with it as a colloquial nickname, I don't see the harm in it.

Are facehuggers called facehuggers in-universe too?
Pretty sure they are.

Captain Kylie calls them "facef**kers" in Into Charybdis.

They call them Face-huggers in Alien: Infiltrator

Reviewer is Australian, and the book said something good about Vegemite.

OF COURSE it's gonna be an eleven outta ten.

Interesting. While a good amount of us here have criticized the book's characteristics, I'm seeing a number of reviews giving great praise to the book. I don't remember if the recent lukewarm books had such a strange type of support.

No, Colony War had a few oddly gushing reviews as well.

But back to Bishop, the author of the highlighted review says that a lot of the references went over his head, meaning that he's not even that invested in the franchise.

Whereas we are!

I will say that, regardless of the quality of the book, I like that the name Michael Bishop (from a freaking trading card set) and "341-B" (from the Kenner toy line!) have become accepted parts of the canon.

IIRC, he was identified as 341-B in the Alien 3 TC on Andrews' computer.

Oops you're right, my bad.

This has been released today in the UK in hardback but doesn't seem to be released on kindle until exactly a year from today, can that be right?!
