Remember 'Aliens'? One swam along perfectly happy to get to Newt.  Remember 'Predator'? One swam along perfectly happy to get to Dutch.  Both already took place. :)

Ash in ALIEN said that the aliens can adapt to its environment, so maybe they can learn how to swim

well I dont think that theres gonna be a alien and predator fight underwater neccesarily.....i'd imagine that the aliens swim or somethin underwater and the predator might do what he did in predator 1 (after dutch gets to shore and the predator jumps in the water and comes up). So the predator might do that, but i dont think aliens and predators will actually be swimming underwater and fighting at the same time.

Re: Hicks Well if you remember, ADI designed the Aliens specifically so they could swim. Which is why they have the different tail design.

I remember Ash saying that the adaptation to any environment was on a cellular level, not a natural (for fish, certain mamals and reptilians) or acquired, learned skill (for humans)...  For them to naturally swin, they would have to have gills, membranes, certains characteristics which would enable them to swim...

i hope the pred can swim because i think the mask can also be a portable oxygen tank for the pred so he can swim underwater longer and the alien is a thing that adapts alot but i do think that the aliens will be like A4 but not as bad lookin. But the question is 4 me, Can the facehugger swim?Chestburster?

Remember, ALIENS can also last in space for a period of time.

Im all for swimming aliens but i was happy with the alien swimming motion in resurection.  I have no idea why they went with the up and down motion instead of a side to side which makes more sence and more realistic.  I remeber hearing that they got it from this lizard but i dont know of any lizard that swims in a up and down motion when they have a long flat tail as they did in resurection.

2 things: first the preds are considered the greatest and most veristile hunters in the universe, so they would look threatining in a clown suit on a unicycle. second the xenomorphs are not a reptilian or mammilian species as was noted in several comics and books so they wouldn't swim like any thing weve ever seen. i think tat i t is going to be awsome no matter how or what is shot in the movie. the only thing is i would love to hear the yautja speaking to one another in the movie with subtitiles and all. anyway later

Banman, human beings can swim, but we don't have gills... In any case, you're assuming these creatures have any need to breathe air. :)

All I was saying was that swimming is a learned skill for us, humans... Unlike fish, some mammals and reptiles who have a morphology adquated to those environments...  A xenomorph would not swim because of Ripley's DNA, it would have to have a built-in morphology thta would enable it t swim like it did on Alien Resurrection...  Also, all I was saying too was that Ash said that the xenomorphs adapted to any hostile environment because they had the 'strangest habit' of replacing dead cells with polarised silicon', not because they automatically knew how to swim and fly... These 'skills' are not cellular related, UNLESS they have a reptilian or fish morphology, hence the gills, membranes, etc...  We swim because we learn how to... we learn to cordinate arms and legs to swim... It is not an inate skill... That is why Aliens could never swim because of the DNA mix...  And you are also assuming that they don't... We just don't know... But we know the swimming ability for humans is not inate, deep in our DNA... It is a learned skill... So AR made a huge mistake, though the underwater sequences were kinda cool...
