The Xeno that attacks the security camera.

Was just watching that clip of the xeno attacking the security camera, I assume aboard the Covenant.

But what struck me, is it looks different to the xenomorph we see attacking the window on the transport craft.

Is it possible it's a Queen?

The teeth seem quite a bit larger and more jagged, and its head looks a lot more, well, "queen like" lol.

Best guesses are its a normal xeno. The one at the camera. Maybe just cause of camera angle its still the same.

The xeno on aircraft is a different one it seems.

My impression was that the beast saying hello to Tennessee through the window is a VERY grown Neomorph (from the wheat fields), and the one that makes it to the Covenant is closer to the "proper" Xeno and a product of the Chestbuster attack. I may be wrong though, but their design is definitely different, not just judging by these two shots.

The one in the camera is also distorted since it looks to be on CCTV monitors. It lacks the big carapace of the queen from what I can see.

I am pretty sure its not a queen. 

I am also 100% confident there wont be a queen in the movie.

In the one trailer or spot there is a xeno seen in davids lab and although the shower scene xeno. Thats probably all the same one but not the one on top of the aircraft.

Probably the same type of morph I agree. I see no evidence of a queen on anything we have been shown.

its taking a selfi ... didnt you know it is a universal thing in the universe ....  if you listen carefully you can here "say chest buster" snap

Xenos and selfi sticks?! That is a true sign of intelligence and self awareness!


Apr-29-2017 1:54 AM

Awesome, thanks all for the feedback!

Had a good 10 mins look and its not a queen to me. It does look a little more watery on its surface though compared to teh first picture.

Only if they can get their heads out of the bloody camera phones!! Then we're doomed...

They will soon figure out how to film their killings and share with fellow xenos for bragging rights.

is it maybe also the mutated Queen Shaw who knows how stuff works on space crafts and now is coming back for David (who mutated her after she had to lay the eggs and was eggmorphed and backmorphed before queenmorphed after all) who switcherood with Walter after he made sure all rifles were dropped in his laboratory where Shaw is also on the dissection table with her rib cage open because there is time travel involved, meanwhile the other space craft with Shaw still in stasis is headed somewhere else in the frog and animal inspired juggernauts because David is lying to us about the war that once took place on lv426 according to japanese 80s rip-off commercials?

call special theorist Ati for answers.

Totally agree with you,... there will be no queens X infinity

The queen i think when all is said and done will not be part of the canon of the main sequence of events.

I love the movie Aliens but it did things that went off the rails of what the Alien is. and the queen was cool once. But the concept of a queen is not Ridley's and reduced the alien organism to a big angry bunch of insects, made them familiar, understandable. This is not what they are, they are something ancient, a gothic cosmic horror with Lovecraftian elements. mutation and possibly egg morphing or perhaps some other method devised by a higher more ancient power than we have met yet....but there should be no queen. Its the perfect organism, no queen, no hive, no insect.

No queen x infinity x Pi X rosie o donnells weight squared

I just hope the story doesnt make david the creator but more of tinkering with what already existed and created by a higher power beyond the engineers.


Apr-30-2017 10:40 AM

I echo Starlogger's sentiments emphatically. I hated the queen idea. Sure, the xenomoprh is insectoid in some respects (watch this--if you're not squeamish), but turning the Perfect Organism into a hive-minded space ant from Hell is too much. Pure Hollywood garbage. Grinning & Dropping Linen said it well above.

S1m0n, that's what I think is going on too. They could make him the creator (maybe Dallas was wrong and the Space Jockey wasn't fossilized?), but I think it would be too convoluted and would annoy too many fans.

It definitely looks different than the one shown previously, although it could just be the camera distortion

Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare...
