Just wondering. Would anything happen at all? If so would we get some kind of synthetic xeno? I am working on concept for this android xeno. If any of you are good at art could you please help me with ideas ?

We have discussed this before- there was no definitive answer as I recall. I like to think that's how the OG Xeno comes to be- but so far xenos don't attack androids (except the queen but that is a separate debate). I am hoping something happens in awakening to make it so.

He would be very disappointed

Well let's look at the clues, xenomorphs need a host to gestate in, otherwise facehuggers would simply plant baby xenomorphs anywhere. Worst cabbage patch kids, ever. So clearly a very specific environment is needed, being that it always chooses living hosts and the resulting xenomorph always shares the physical traits of its host, we can extrapolate that DNA is what it needs. Perhaps nutrients too, though it is debatable whether xenomorphs eat or not. So the facehugger is essentially putting semen into a host (or ovum) and when combined a chestburster is born. A synthetic body has nothing a xenomorph needs, I can only assume it would fail to thrive.

The only way to create a "xenoid" would be by artificial means, and let's face it, xenomorphs are essentially perfect as they are, any augmentations wouldn't improve it. Also, acid blood, kind of makes cybernetic enhancements hard.

I think if they did this they would be messing about with ALIEN Law... but well they did that with Alien Covenant anyway.

The only Logical Way forwards is if Walter Models are Synthetic Constructs like Elden from Fire and Stone.

David will not be in Alien Awakening as a One Handed Android and so the Covenant is bound to have Spare Walter Parts and so maybe this is how David can evolve the Xenomorph to become Bio-Mechanical.. 

He could Build a Walter, or even then transfer his Soul/Mind into the Walter he builds and this Synthetic Construct can then be fused with the Black Goo or infected by a Face Hugger.

We've speculated something like this for years now, first with David. Walter has some DNA so it could be possible.

Long Live the Walter-morph ;)

I have started to draw what one might look like. here is my first draft. Just saying, I am not very good at art.

Dont expect anything biomechanical. As androids has human dna chestbuster is only alternative.

I personally wish this was a topic way more widely discussed. I'm pretty sure everybody's first thought was "umm, nothing, duh", but, due to the complexity of an androids anatomy and the fact that at least the Walter model had some DNA, it would be hard to say. I'm pretty sure this is something that will eventually be explored in the alien universe. Sadly, most likely nothing would happen though, since Xenos don't usually attack androids :(

would they have skin? i dont think so because the androids skin is completly abiotic. it could mabey be born with no kin allowing us to see all of its veins and muscles

the queens attack androids and regular drones will attack anything that is percived as a threat, so they might try if the android was destroying their hive. i have another way it could happen but this is purely speculation. The preatorian gaurds are close to being queens and may just be young queens so they might attack, and it is possible thsat they could have the ability to lay embrios directly into a human host. sort of lke the predalien in avp requium. the preatorian might be tricked into thinking that the android was human. they look the same at the same and I thnkl have the same body temp.
