Q

This is a really good point, especially in light of how often 'Aliens' gets misinterpreted as the Aliens being mindless cannon-fodder. I mean yeah I can see where people could get that impression about the Aliens from that movie, but there's a lot of other things going on in that movie that run counter to it that people seemingly forget.

I remember discussions on this very forum where Steve Perry himself defended portraying the Aliens as mindless cannon-fodder in his books. :P
Makes me wonder if anyone ever brought up the very point with him that you're bringing up about Predators not all universally being "honorable space-samurai".

Probably didn't help when Jim Cameron himself at least once described the alien "as a mindless, chaotic life urge that's out of control".

Q
Can someone tell me if I got this right - is this Weyland Yutani Report thing like a sort of "encyclopedia" regarding the alien?

Also not to nitpick but someone should fix the news article's "Reports" to "Report."

Encyclopaedia  :laugh: .  Your question is redundant.  That's for wikis or nerds like SiL & SM, who think they know everything.  :)

Great, thanks for clearing up my confusion guys.
We don't know. SM might, because she picked out some stuff from his site. I'm guessing it'll be in the style of the Anchorpoint Essays or the Colonial Marines Technical Manual.

I'm not really sure what you mean or are trying to say, but I had to ask because everyone seemed to be talking about Steve Perry's comic book writing.

And please, enough of the smartass act, you're wasting finger energy neither pissing off nor impressing anyone here.
