A problem I have with a lot of Aliens media and fan depictions is the tendency to rationalize and animalize the aliens.
Like making it all about the pseudo insect hive hierarchy introduced in the second movie, or making the alien too much like the host’s species, or deciding that they are “just pure animal instinct”, or wanting to know their origin…
I mean don’t get me wrong, understanding things is cool in real life, but we are talking about a fictional monster that was literally inspired by nightmares. It doesn’t have to “make sense”, it only needs to be scary, and uncertainity is scary.
When we understand something, we feel “in control” in a way, even if we are in danger. The alien is all about taking the feeling of being in control away from us, it subjugates its victims; so if anything I hope future Alien movies (and comics, and videogames, and fan works and anything) try to go against what we think we know about the aliens, and take us by surprise albeit without revealing too much, just enough.
