I think the reason why the Deacon is widely confused if it is a common xenomorph or a protomorph or a queen !?!?!??!... I think its a king cause its a breed or form that's a queen. And that when the deacon gives birth it births with an egg like thing that later turns into a trilobite. It makes sense though, the events that happened in Prometheus were very rare so the deacon would be birthed with a trilobite so that the species will survive. I think that its not a queen but a king, being able to create a queen or a king by impregnating a host.

What do you guys think?

Gents & Ladies,

Didn't anyone ever consider that there was already a king in Aliens?  Why make another one.

The Facehugger is King.  It has face sex with you, drops a Xenomorph load, smokes a cig rolls over and then dies.  Sounds pretty masculine.

Nuff said....LOL

^^^^ omg lol!!!

I guess it is possible. Many species do have a dominant male figure. problem is it would have to be plausibly sequenced somehow to fit into the Alien continuum.

Problem is, I am just not sure how much it would add to the story. I think there are enough questions that need to be answered from Prometheus without tossing another tangent storyline...

Exactly, I could see a primordial alien fitting as a "king" role but not in the literal sense. The king definition honestly sounds like something spawned from a comic book (and maybe it did)

One of the many issues with Prometheus was introducing too many monster variations without any real purpose or explanation other than goo mutations for a freak show, set up for independent and varied gore scenes just for the shock effect. Little to no substance imo.

I did some research since Xeno's take an insect hive mentality on Ants and found this rather interesting.  Some queens don't need males some do.  Depending on the hive some queens may require a "king" for mating.  I could see a king being a possibility in what I would call a "super hive" with multiple queens and vast amount of drones/warriors.  He could be the "super hive" sheriff keeping the peace, order and hive continuity while the queens are propped up laying eggs.  This I could see a real possibility if we find a whole planet overtaken by Xeno's.

 See ant reproduction below.



A wide range of reproductive strategies have been noted in ant species. Females of many species are known to be capable of reproducing asexually through thelytokous parthenogenesis.[63] Secretions from the male accessory glands in some species can plug the female genital opening and prevent females from re-mating.[64] Most ant species have a system in which only the queen and breeding females have the ability to mate. Contrary to popular belief, some ant nests have multiple queens, while others may exist without queens. Workers with the ability to reproduce are called "gamergates" and colonies that lack queens are then called gamergate colonies; colonies with queens are said to be queen-right.


PraetorianMember3070 XPFeb-15-2017 9:09 PMExcellent research Rick.An excellent frame of reference.

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for

Thanks nin,  It makes you wonder if there is as much diversity in the Xeno's as there are in ants.  Red v Black comes to mind.  I bet if we ever found a "Xeno Prime" planet there would be tons of diversity among the species.  Where Kings have their REIGN....LOL


Diversification adds to their perfection as a species.  This appeases both sides of the fence where some want a king and some don't.


PraetorianMember3070 XPFeb-15-2017 11:32 PMIt's an idea worth exploring.One thing that comes to mind are all those old action figures from Kenner.They had gorillas,bulls,mantis,cougar,panther etc.Seems like they were envisioning the same thing.

It makes perfect sense with the Xeno's ability to adapt to its environment.  I am sure some of them would become extremely specialized for the hunt in their environment even within the same hive community.  Prehensile Xeno tail hanging from a tree waiting for something to walk by and blam head blast.  Or even a trap door Xeno.  I would consider a small pod of Xeno's to be like a Lion Pride.  The females hunt and the male handles his business "Like a Boss"  LOL or King

I also wanted to throw out there:

In the official soundtrack from the Alien: Covenant trailer its quoted, "then we spoke of many things: fools and kings"

Could that be a clue?? 


XenomorphMember1261 XPMar-06-2017 5:13 PM

fools and Kings = human face sex with Hugger (Ha got it in 5 words again)
