Put AvP:R on until it runs away.

SM-

I think you could make it happen. If you would not put out an idea or story, would you be available as a consultant for some one else who might want to do something just for fun on this site?

I wonder if it would be possible to sedate the facehugger, some kind of anaesthesia (and then remove it)?

I agree.S.M. you have extensive knowledge of the alien universe,you definitely know more than the rest of us.I often post forums because i know you'll have the answer.I can only imagine you have some great story ideas.

Consultant to do what?

A synth could surely unwrap the tail from the victim. Ash didn't because he wanted the process to continue. This could facilitate an emergency chrich. Assuming the facehugger entered the lungs, it could only occupy one bronch- probably the right being the easisest to access. An endotracheal tube could follow down and deliver O2 to the lest lung.

Come on SM- help us rescue this fictional character.

Indeed- Ripley questioned her role as the consultant but ultimately saved the day and made a great story.

"Consultant to do what?"

Perhaps mentor a young writer who has great ideas but feels intimidated to share.

Would you be willing to share your expertise if writers asked?

The only way to save the host is to wait until the hugger is dead then try and surgically remove the embryo.

An android would have the necessary strength to remove the tail, but Dallas observes the hugger tearing Kane's scalp when Ash to much as touches one of its legs.

It secreted acid to get through Kane's helmet - there's nothing to stop it secreting it all over the hosts face as a last resort.

I remember seeing somewhere (possibly in Newts tale) the idea that if a facehugger senses immanent removal, it performs a toxin dump that kills the host. If we (in this thread) are considering this a canonical feature of facehuggers, what could be done to cir***vent this issue during a removal procedure?

ChestbursterMember935 XPFeb-07-2017 12:24 AM

I think I agree with S.M. From what we now know of the creature (in Alien they didn’t know anything), the facehugger won’t give up until it has performed its biological “duty”. It can kill the host with acid or suffocate the victim. When the facehugger leaves the victim, a surgical removal of the embryo could probably be made. But it would have to be done very quickly. It grows with unnatural quickness. It didn’t take long for it to exit Kane’s chest - and you probably shouldn't feed it which he did? My guess is that the embryo is in the food pipe (and not in the wind pipe), although it probably could manage just as well by munching (absorbing nutrients) only on the host. :)

S.M

XenomorphMember1234 XPFeb-07-2017 12:30 AM

It sits in the chest cavity between heart and lung.

Food probably doesn't play any part, as in normal cir***stances the host would be stuck to a wall and not eating.

To the OP. Imaginations are not running wild, and if they do, ideas seem to get shot down. I notice many party poopers never seem to express ideas. They seem to only react and not initiate.  Sometimes a simple yes or no question cannot be answered.

Okay S.M.Here's one for you.Your an android,you have the ability to be ignored by facehuggers.You and your human friend are in a room full of eggs.A facehugger then attaches it's self to your friends face.What do you do?

ChestbursterMember935 XPFeb-07-2017 1:04 AM

S.M: Yes, but both the wind pipe and food pipe goes through the chest cavity. The facehugger puts a tube through the victim's mouth, down the throat and into either the wind pipe or the food pipe and then lets the embryo slowly work its way down? Do you mean that the embryo would work its way through whichever pipe it is and then settle somewhere between heart and lung?

PraetorianMember3070 XPFeb-07-2017 1:05 AM

Crazy idea.Distract the facehugger with a lady(?) Facehugger.Instead of a chestburster we can have little facehugger babies.

It somehow gets through the wall of the esophagus, and ends up in the chest cavity.

Do I have behavioural inhibitors?

I posted this on the similar thread concerning facehugger removal. Considering that the face-hugger has highly (pressurized) acidic blood, I think a possible course of action would be to introduce a base (calcium hydroxide, sodium choride, etc.) into its blood stream to neutralize the acidity. Most likely, some serious experimentation would have to be done to ensure that the base isn't too strong, as the resultant interaction with the acid could cause just as much or even more damage than the acid itself. Similarly, the base probably would have to be stronger than everyday "arm & hammer" baking soda for it to effectively work. It is at this point , removal would be feasible without significant damage to the host.

FacehuggerMember355 XPFeb-07-2017 6:21 AM

I forgot to add that the resultant exothermic reaction when combining an strong acid with a equally strong base will produce some combination of metal salt & water build-up and I suspect this would by itself kill the facehugger (who appears to have a pressurized acid  blood system within it...)

NeomorphMember1823 XPFeb-07-2017 8:22 AM

my guess is it cant be done successfully. and by that I mean the host survives. the facehugger would be more than capable of killing the host if implantation was going to be interrupted. I agree with SM that ul have to wait till it falls off and dies on its own and then extract the chest burster

S.M

XenomorphMember1234 XPFeb-07-2017 11:42 AM

"S.M.:The answer would be no,you're an android with free will."

If that's the case I would do nothing and let nature take its course, recording the results.

S.M.:Would you prefer behavior inhibitors?

Allow me to rephrase that.What would you do if you had behavior inhibitors?

OvomorphMember86 XPFeb-08-2017 12:04 AM

Put the body in water and put it off. That way the acid won't burn the host and you can heal the cuts from the facehugger if it hurts the face.

Or if you can find the things brain and stick a needle in it with a drug or  toxin that will paralyze it

PraetorianMember3070 XPFeb-08-2017 12:08 AM

Hey Bull Alien,i have that action figure.

It'll strangle the host before you can get it off.

"Allow me to rephrase that.What would you do if you had behavior inhibitors?"

Try and prevent the host coming to harm, which I think would ultimately involve waiting for the hugger to drop off, then trying to remove the embryo.

PraetorianMember3070 XPFeb-08-2017 12:12 AM

Okay S.M. where do you go from there?
