It's not my preferred option, but I think it's likely that the xenomorph will in the end be some kind of fusion between an human and it's suit:

As you can see there are some structural similarities. The protruding organs in the back of the xeno could be some kind of respiratory organ, in the same position of the breathing mechanism of the space suit.

Also the "collar" around the xeno´s neck is more or less on the same position of the helmet support in the suit. Finally, the translucid dome of the xeno´s head could be the helmet itself. Maybe the anticipated "bioform", if real, could be the substance that allows this "fusion".

In this case, the xenos never were some kind of biomechanical creation or weapon, but probably, an accident. What do you think?

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-16-2012 10:09 AMAgreed! I defiantly think this to be true!...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-16-2012 10:18 AMThose are some pretty good observations, and if you take into account that Fifiled's head gets round and dome like I could really see this happening.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-16-2012 10:29 AMPersonally, I would find, "Fusion of Brundle and fly at molecular-genetic level", a little boring.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-16-2012 10:53 AMI don't know...I think I would find that an unimaginitive and easy way to tell the story. But I haven't seen tho movie yet, so who knows...maybe it works. Your case is compelling. I believe the xeno has been around for a long time...not created because of the events in Prometheus. Now, the xeno may be slightly different because of the utilization of host DNA...but not much different. I suppose we shall see!


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-16-2012 11:17 AMI like what you point out but I don't think it is possible. You are forgetting the alien mural. They have obviously been around way before the events of the movie.


OvomorphMember45 XPMay-16-2012 1:42 PM@Kayg920 Good observation, but we don´t know yet what the "alien mural" exactly is. It could be, for example, the proto-xeno emerging from the "bioform matrix" where a former crew member was attached/felt on. But I agree that it is a terminal case of imagination going wild! : )

OvomorphMember45 XPMay-16-2012 3:55 PMYep, my hand was tremblng when I made that circle. ; )


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-16-2012 4:00 PMDavid combines with the goo and creatures we've seen to create the Xenomorph perhaps. Gives the bio and the mechanical we need.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-17-2012 2:23 AMHmmm I dunno I seen this already may have to lock it :-P Just kiddin' centro :-D

OvomorphMember0 XPSep-02-2012 7:39 PMHe guys I don't know if you will return to this post but I was thinking... Maybe Elizabeth Shaw is who is infected and connects the xenomorph to the suit. Since there will be a sequel maybe this will be the last "test" if you will...that David will conduct. Seeing as though he intentionally infected Elizabeth's boyfriend. I think part of his mission is to learn all about the xenomorphs and black goo as he can and if he must include humans in the process he will. Maybe the last part of his research will be to see what happens to a human when infected with the black goo even with a space suit on. Aka will the alien bond with non biological substances? One reason why I say this is because the crew member Fifield was infected but killed so David didn't learn as much about that as he could or should have. But the second and most important reason I have is the fact that the Deacon obviously looks like a different version and earlier because of it's absence of protruding organs like the xenomprphs you see in the later movies. What do you guys think?

I love checking this topic again after seeing Bkomkamp's Alien 5 concept art. Wonder if Blomkamp got inspiration for his artwork after reading this thread? Haha
