Xenomorph XX-121?

So one thing has been on my mind for a while now; if the Alien that we all know, love, and sometimes fear is designated as XX-121, then putting aside the novels and theories about the alien, what about XX-001 through XX-120? It's probably safe to assume that Weyland-Yutani wouldn't just pull some random number to call the creature they are trying so hard to get their hands on.

Look upon my works, you mighty, and despair

they could be anything, microbes, bacteria etc that's been found offworld

Ali81 the only thing is that if it were then it would have a more detailed designation because the only real reason I can think of for the XX designation is because they haven't been able to get any specimens for study but know for an absolute fact based on evidence like maybe footage that they exist, and I can't imagine how bacteria or other microorganisms would have evidence like that but not get a hold of any specimens.

I  have discussed this before and maybe its same as LV-223 and LV-426 and what donates those Digits?

XX-121...  is the XX just basically a Catalogue of ALL Alien Life Encountered that is not from Earth, and in order to be in that Catalogue does it have to be more than Basic Life?  So no Bacteria etc.

Or is XX-000 only related to Organisms related to the Engineers Bio-Weapon?  Or the Xenomorph itself.

Does XX-121 split up to be in sections like say

1 = Animal Kingdom of Primates

2 = Apes

1 = Chimpanzees

So that XX-211  would be a different Species.

2 = Animal Kingdom Canines

1 = Wolves

1 = Dire Wolf

Etc, so its not a case of 121 prior Organisms or any that are related.

It could work as above but related only to what the Company have discovered.

so the 1 = Black Goo, 2 = Experiments on Planet 4 but  then the other 1 would surely be the Neomorph.

So its very open to debate as what the Numbering System could indicate.  It could relate purely to the Black Goo as being XX and a Catalogue of Organisms they have evidence of that they came across or just Catalogued in a Certain Order before designating the Xenomorph 121

I think it would depend on the order in which David files it. while David was on the surface he may have encountered the neomorph first but informs the company of the xenomorph first?

is there a designation for the neomorph?

Ali81 OH YEAH I completely forgot about that DAVID sent all of his research to WY at the end and there was more than enough lifeforms for the alien to be listed as XX-121

I think the thing to remember is XX-121 was a designation given to the Xenomorph by the Weyland-Yutani Report as a attempt after Prometheus to make the Xenomorph more than just being called a Xenomorph.

its to add more Scientific Weight behind how the Weyland Company would Catalogue this Organism, rather than call it a Xenomorph.

The only way to find out how the Designation for XX-121 applies would be either have more information from S.D. Perry about WHY and HOW the Xenomorph was given this Designation and what discussion if any with FOX had happened regards to being this specific. 

Until then, or if they confirmed there is no real purpose just that XX-121 is better than Xenomorph in light of the reveal that the Xenomorph is related to the Pathogen in Prometheus, then we may have to wait until some OFFICIAL File comes along that gives a Designation to the Neomorph, the Deacon or others so we can make a connection.

For example... if the Neomorph was XX-111  and the Deacon XX-101 then the pattern would show that if we have a New Organism derived from the Xenomorph it could be XX-131 for example the New Born in Alien Resurrection.

Along these lines of thinking...

The Runner Alien in Alien 3 could thus become XX-122 etc or any other XX-12* (*0-9) so maybe then the Queen is designated a XX-12* or are they all simply XX-121?

We wont know unless this kind of numbering was thought out and discussed in this manner with FOX/S.D. Perry when doing the W-Y Report or until we get a XX-*** Designation for other Organisms in the Franchise.
