Thoughts about castes in the alien hive ?

The queen and another caste of workers/warriors are enough

Specialised aliens make sense, spitters, runners, warriors, drones... (tell which work for you)

They don't even need the queen. Basic creature and procreation via eggmorphing

I think the following, not yet invented, caste would make sense... (give a description)
0 (0%)
For me they are not f*ckin space bugs but an ancient, alien cosmic horror

Not as such.  Something similar though.

        Apone stops, his expression changing.  They face a
        wall of living horror.  The colonists have been
        brought here and entombed alive...

        COCOONS protrude from the niches and interstices
        of the structure.  The cocoon material is the same
        translucent epoxy.  The bodies are frozen in
        carelessly twisted positions.  Macabre image of
        frozen agony.  Many are disiccated.  Skeletal.
        Rip-cages burst outward, as if exploded from within.
        Paralyzed, brought here, entombed in living death
        as hosts for the embryos growing within then.

"Carelessly twisted", that's the one.

What about the novelization?  Doesn't SM have it committed to memory?

"...arms and legs had been grotesquely twisted; broken when necessary..."

Yeah.  "Memory".
