    Ok. With comic con coming up it has me thinking about xenomorphs, and chestbursters more importantly. Does it seem so unbelievable that if you got a baby chestburster right out of the chest, and took it and showed it love and affection, could it become tame? And actually be capable of showing affection back? Maybe if it was showed kindness and treated nicely it wouldn't be such a viscous beast? It's impossible to test my theory, but these thoughts float around my head sometimes. image.jpeg

    The answer is no. First and foremost a Xenomorph answers to the hive leader/queen.
    The newborn for example showed such traits (knowing that the hive leader was not the queen but Ripley.) Once the Queen is dead the only instinct the Alien has is to reproduce/kill/survive it's still a very primitive being.

    The only way to create an Alien with traits such as a conscious etc self awareness and such is if they combined an Alien and another species that has such abilities. And I mean like a hybrid human/alien. Engineer/Alien.

    Fair enough, sometimes I like to think about the what ifs

    lots of information to digest there!!! It has just been a subject that's been on my mind lately. But doesn't the baby chestbursters take on any of the traits of the host? I wish there were some way to find out!!!

    It was a hybrid, hence why it chose to follow Ripley instead of the queen :) a normal Xeno would follow the queen.

    As far as the movies go, the chestburster catches some physiological traits of the host, but never any personality traits.
    I have the theory that ripley might have received a queen's pheromones during the cloning mutations while the queen that she gave birth to might have had a far fainter "queen scent" to her, which caused the newborn to follow "smells like my mama"- ripley instead of "smells like crap"-queenie :)
    Soooo now that ripley is a sentient human being with a queen's scent and alien blood and super-senses, perhaps she would be able to "tame" a baby chestburster, at least as far as his instincts allow and as far as there is no other, better smelling queen around :D
