Seegson Corporation is a competitor of Weyland-Yutani Corporation in 2179.
In Alien: The Cold Forge, Seegson Corporation is competitor cited and they rewrite the rules of corporate espionage. The book is great. I will not ruin it for anyone by including spoilers to the novel but here below are a few details that I took away from reading it:
1) There are more xenomorphs in the Alien: The Cold Forge novel than in the Alien, Alien 3, and Alien Ressurection films combined but less xenomorphs than in Aliens.
2) The Caterpillar P-5000 Power Loader makes a huge comeback.
3) In 2179, Weyland-Yutani also provides the MARCUS model (Trademark 2169) and part of the boot verifications are ISIS, OSIRIS, SET, and RA.
4) Seegson Corporation utilizes a synthetic called "Rook".
5) The scientific name of the black substance excreted by the facehugger is Plagiarus praepotens.
I will have to look at Reading Some Novels and Investing some time into them as some do sound interesting

Ingeniero thanks for the reminder! I must read this now!
Im glad you are enjoying it. Some good news XD
That was my best way to describe the "black goo" substance ali81 that the scientists are trying to capture when the face hugger deposits the egg. I believe it is similar to what we saw with Fifield and Kane in regards to the mutagen dissolving the most difficult materials without pause.
It is unknown if Plagiarus praepotens is the mutagen seen in Alien: Covenant (and/or Prometheus) when David introduces himself to those on Planet 4 but the mutagen described in Alien: The Cold Forge has "locomotion" similar to what was seen in the attack.
BigDave, I highly recommend this novel. As far as the how the novels fit together, Alien: Covenant Origins certainly fits and tells us what the Company and competitors were doing before contact with the xenomorphs or Engineers. The Cold Forge describes a place where the Company is very early in their direct studies of the xenomorph and their biggest enemy is their own assumptions.
Yes, you must read it ASAP, IRaptus. The facility in Alien: The Cold Forge is a converted prison/bunker-type complex Weyland-Yutani Corporation bought on the cheap. And it sounds like Walter has been put out to pasture, below.
"you sound like one of those old poetry-quoting models. Like Walter or something."
Alien: The Cold Forge, page 20.
I always just believed the face hugger used its acid to burn through Kane's face plate. im def going to read this novel.
I had assumed the same thing ali81 you did regarding Kane's helmet. There is a flash of mutagen that the face hugger produces when it deposits the egg. You will love it. My contribution to conventional daily tasks was disrupted for 1 and 1/2 days after I received the novel until I finished it.
Cold Forge is a great read!
"The trick, William Potter, is not minding that it hurts."
well in the spirit of Alien Day I'm making it my mission to buy and read this novel today. Great job!
