Oh! Cultists? These guys arent unknown in the Aliens universe. The first cult rose up in Aliens Earth Hive, and the real reason why the xenos escaped in the first place. It was led by a guy named Salvaje. You see, in the early comics and stuff, xenos were able to communicate sorta, using telepathic dreams. People that recieved these dreams either saw them as horrible nightmares, or visions of 'The true Messiah'. Of course, it was only a way to lure people into being hosts, which worked quite well.
The place where the first xeno was being housed in Lima, which had matured into a queen and laying eggs, was raided by hundreds of cultists. Many gave themselves willingly as hosts, but some sorta regretted it. Before a destruct sequence was activated, around a dozen inpregnated hosts got free.

Anywhat, a lot of cults exist after the alien wars, but mostly through the spread of Royal Jelly which is in the extended universe. You can see quite a bit of this in the Omnibus series, mostly in the first and fourth volumes. Freaks...

Anywho, Im pretty darn sure the cultists in the game are only there to kinda give you a freebee, since its the last level and its the toughest. After all, you are going up against a full sized hive of the K-Series.
Hahahaha! Hope I didnt talk anyone's ears off with the whole thing with the extened universe. ::)

Since the comics aren't canon they don't count as part of the alien universe.

We're not talking about making a movie, here. It doesn't need to be canon.

Also, there's no such thing as official canon.

No statement has ever been made, it's all canon, you just have to decide how it all fits, or simply relegate certain material to non-canonical universes yourself, but nobody has to agree with your take on it.

And back on topic, I remember Salvaje and his cult, he had that commtech working for him who got taken away by men in black and got drugged, right?

That whole storyline could've made a great seperate story altogether.

I did enjoy the novels of the Aliens series pretty awesome! Especially with Mr. Perry's excellent weapons and gadget descriptions. Only major plot problem I had with it was how it related to the original storyline in Aliens. Replacing Hicks with Wilks, and Newt with Billy. Wasnt his fault though, DH just seems to have some trouble with ideas.
Either way, I would love to see stories that are about the Colonial Marines without xenomorph involvement. Human on human combat would be awesome!

Maybe the alien would accept me then I could become a double agent working for the hive by letting them track me as i move to different places where humans are hiding, in trade for my own life.
