    Dan O'Bannon, who created the Alien, wrote that the planet on which the Aliens were found in the films was in fact its home world, but that a cataclysmic event millennia prior had wiped out all the adults of the species, leaving only the eggs. The creatures, prior to extinction, had reached a level of intelligence where they were able to construct temples and had their own culture and written language. The Space Jockeys, miners exploring the area much like the Nostromo and its crew, then found the planet, only to come to grief when they came across the dormant eggs. This was written into the original script, and was published in the Alien Portfolio, which detailed design aspects of the film.

    Apparently aliens used to be able to write

    Predator 2 is my favorite.

    What's best is that since this takes place in modern times, Danny Glover could be in it, and it'd be canon.

    But the fun part of the aliens is that they're not intelligent. They're just a force of nature and biology that can't be stopped even by all of humans advanced science.

    I don't remember the bit about xenophant claiming Earth. Was that how Female War ended? On an unrelated but more interesting note than feminazi motivated themes re:AvP, Chris Bunch i guess died in like 2005(!?) and Steve Perry and some other Perry finished his Star Risk series. It was decent.

    Anyway, literate xeno's: boo. Now that we've established their zerg-esque flavor, I want to see an octoxenopus, and a xenomanbearpig. Like now.

    No it was Earth Hive that had the space jockey.

    Spoiler-ish
    It's been awhile but I think the space jockey showed up in his ship as Earth was finally overrun. If I remember right all he basically said was "you bitches is fucked". Also Earth was only slightly nuked at the end of Earth Hive.

    Looks like a giant phallic symbol to me.

    Man, everything H.R. Geiger does is pahllic this vaginal that. It's all sort of messed up, and since I like messed up trippy things, I prefer the Xenomorphs over other bad-ass alien species.

    Besdies, Sugorney Weaver! "Get away from her you bitch!"

    Also, only the first 3 Alien movies count in my book. No Resurection (tho it was ok I admit) and no silly comics or games or AVP. Man, why wasn't AVP set in the future? I mean come on Hollywood! Duh!

    oddly the only ones i've seen are aliens and alien resurrection

    i feel like i probably should've seen alien before resurrection

    since alien is supposed to be good and resurrection was horrendous

    And I think a DVD or two of special features

    Only problem is they're UK so I'd have to watch 'em on my computer. I really must get a region-free DVD player.
