 I was thinking. you know how the host of a xenomorph is a variable of how the xenomrph is. when it came out of the dog(or ox) in alien 3, it ran on 4 legs and acted more freall than the human hosted xenomorphs. dose this work the same way with neomorphs. I really don't know because we have never seen a neomorph come out of anything other than a human. however, the two neomorph bursters looked completly different from each other. why? The only difference between the 2 host was that one was infected through the nose, and one through the ear. could this possibly be related. the back burster had spines so it could break through its hosts spine while the other one, the neckburster seemed wormlike in appearance. even stranger is that once they matured they looked almost completly identical. My current half baked theory is that the neomorphs inhabit somesort of temporary dna reflex but instead of looking like its host, it is spicificly designed to break out of its given host. how this works I have know idea, but this is the best i can think of. if you think of a better and more likely theory, please tell me in the comments.

Not sure what you mean. Both neomorphs looked identical as adults. They looks different as they grow, and both were shown growing at different stages in the movie since they were not both born at the same time, so perhaps that is what you are seeing.

Ridley said something about the neomorphs being more vulnerable because of the human DNA, which is why they have soft skin like a human instead of a hard shell like the xenomorph version.

I can see what you are talking about, as far as i remember indeed it was hard to see the Spines on the Neomorph that came from Hallets Mouth, compared to the Spines on the back of the one that used them to break out of Ledwood.

So i can see your point, and its a nice theory, one that could be a good explanation..

However the Neomorph in the Wheat Field Attack had spines, but then again this could be Ledwoods and not Hallets Neomorph

I cant recall if its had and how large the spines on the latter one that crawled up the Cathedral had, because i only saw the movie 3 times at the Box Office.  But i would assume this was the one that attacked Rosenthal and so indeed had Spines.

from the Concept works though, i will assume they are supposed to all be the same/similar and so that both Neomorphs would have grown Spines.

I hope that the only AWAKENING we are in for is FOX/RS wake up and learn from their mistakes.

yes I also see what u mean. iv only seen the film once and didn't get a good enough look at the 2nd neo that came out the throat to see if it had spines or not. if it didn't then I would wonder why

Do the promotional X-Rays help?  THey look a little bit different, but hard to tell if there are extra tentacles/tails/something wrapped around them.

don't really see anything. its more when they birth does the 2nd neo have the spines. maybe if it doesn't its perhaps due to the gestation period. maybe having sensed danger the second neo erupts at an earlier stage than the first

The second neo that burst out of Hallett's mouth did not have spines.

It did not appear to be as formed as the one that burst from Ledward's back.

could be that it emerged prematurely due to sensing danger?

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world -- whose sole inhabitant is the "synthetic" David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
