not a fan of the person wielding two swords about to fight a xenomorph, it doesn't fit in the alien universe
LalaSalamancaOvomorphMember27 XPApr-27-2023 5:32 PM
Yeah I agree with Xenotaris, swords don't feel like they fit
Lord Dya-ReeyahOvomorphMember11 XPApr-27-2023 9:45 PM
Agreed. In the future, why are people still using weapons that require very close-quarters when engaging in mortal combat with the deadliest creatures ever? Only good answer I can think of is something like Frank Herbert's Holtzmann Shield tech
XenotarisPraetorianMember4251 XPApr-27-2023 10:19 PM
But shield tech is absent in the alien-verse. Humans aren't that advanced in the ALIEN series, this isn't Star Wars or Star Trek were everyone and their mothers have laser and phaser weapons. The humans of the Alien-universe still fire metallic bullets just guided with computers.
So wielding swords to kill a freaking xenomorph is frakking dumb, you'll get its acid blood all over you. The only reason the yautja (predators) wield mostly melee weapons against the xenomorphs is because their entire society has a death wish. Humans are smarter than that, humans typically prefer range over melee because our society evolved away the need for melee combat.
THIS ISN'T FIREFLY NOR STAR WARS, NOAH HAWLEY!!!!!

The sword thing looks like something that could have been in Star Wars. Put into the context of Alien it just looks… odd and something that I don't think would be very useful when it comes to fighting a Xeno. I try to keep an open mind about this and hope for the best.
As far as the quality is concerned the pictures look good. The last one reminds me a bit about the ship from Covenant, I think that's where they tried to shoot a monster and **** got messed up. Eventually it was Faris that did the shooting, but I could be wrong. Please let the Hawley thing be better than Covenant, and Prometheus.

Sadly, judging from what Hawley has being saying, its going to be worse, much worse.

"it doesn't fit in the alien universe"
It depends what you mean, the Weapons of the ALIEN Universe do-not have to be Limited to what we had seen in ALIENS... but you make Good Points regarding the USE of Swords vs a Xenomorph... at Close Quarters your risking SPLASH DAMAGE from the Acid Blood.
But WHAT we have to remember is that WENDY is NOT a Human in the Traditional Sense but a Genetically Engineered... Super Human.
The Concept Art is not CLEAR... but the Figure does have Feminine Attributes. Which could mean its more LIKELY that the Child's Soul/Memory are in a Genetically Enhanced Female Body. So the TRANS Element would be as such, i had Suspected earlier on it could be a Human Girl Soul in a MALE BODY.
Still engaging a Xenomorph in this WAY is NOT ideal.... but then WHO KNOWS as to what kind of Enhancements the Enhanced Humanoids have, if they can REGENERATE like Ripley 8 then they could HEAL any kind of Acid Wounds if they are NOT that Serious....
But if this is the case and Wielding a Pair of Katana, then this could easily become like a WOLVERINE VS ALIEN.... which i dont think is a Good Idea.

Looking at the 2nd Image would seem to Indicate that we will Deal with some point in the TV Series that will see a WY Ship Crash into a Area/City that is Ran/Owned by the Prodigy Company which will RESULT in a Exploration of the SHIP. I suspect that WY would want their Ship back, but the Prodigy Corp may be like Finders Keepers... especially regarding the Xenomorph.
The 3rd Image we have a Chest Bursted Cryo-Pod, so we have someone who had been Infected by a Xenomorph and its likely the Xenomorph in Question would lead to the Ships Demise and eventual Crash!
Earlier Concepts had indicated inside some Ship/Outpost we see Eggs and these Eggs are NOT like Contained in Storage Containers/Glass... so they likely got there as a Result of a Xenomorph.... this is maybe NOT going to be via a QUEEN.. which could END UP as not pleasing some...
If it was a QUEEN the its a case of WHERE has she GOT too and i think to THROW IN a Queen so Early on would not be a Good Pay Off... and so it could be we would see the EGG MORPH?
But then its IF the Earlier Concept will make it to the TV Series.

This TV series sounds more and more like were getting an ALIEN RESURRECTION 2: the Series
BigDaveDeaconMember10416 XPApr-29-2023 9:32 AM
I think that beyond some Bland Characters that Alien Resurrection had a LOT to it if we looked BEYOND what it seemed to SHOW....
When looking at the Xenomorph as a Bio-Weapon as in you DROP some Eggs some place and Watch them Exterminate the Population... i think that this is NOT the Best kind of Weapon that Humanity has... or even the Engineers.. especially the Engineers.
The Xenomorph makes Little Sense in this Context vs the other Options...
It HOWEVER makes Perfect Sense if we look at the David the Creator Angle, but this is a SORE SUBJECT for many.
And so for me i think to Genetically look at the Xenomorph and WHAT can be Gained by its Survival Traits is the BIGGER PAY OFF... and a LOT of this would FIT in with the ENGINEERS main Agenda (which is NOT to KILL Humans) and Peter Weylands (which is NOT to use them as Killing Machines).
The QUEST for IMMORTALITY so to Speak...... RS had said he felt the Xenomorph could Regenerate... but that Conflicts the Franchise, depending to WHAT kind of Degree. In Context to the Movies the Closest we have seen to IMMORTALITY is via David 8 and Ripley 8 and so i think such things are something that gives more Reward than trying to Obtain and USE the ALIEN as a Killing Machine but such PLOTS are something that may NOT go and be Everyone's Cup of Tea.

I was hoping Alien Resurrection would have been forgotten but nope. Its the movie that killed the stand-alone alien franchise prior to Prometheus. They could have expanded the franchise beyond Ripley but they squandered this with AR and its stupid plots.
