About the drone in Alien

Alienation, Xenomorph, 13 years ago

Okay, a drone transforms into a queen when a queen is dead. The facehugger attacked Kane(I think that this was his name) and was on their ship afterwards. When the chestburster came out, it turned into a drone.

Was the drone supposed to turn into a queen or was it supposed to stay a drone?

Alienation, that all really depends solely upon opinion and personal theory.

We have no idea what that egg made by that drone in Alien held. It could have been a super facehugger, it could have been a regular facehugger.

Likewise, we don't know if drones can transform into queens or not.

I personally favor the concept of a drone advancing to the state of a queen on its own, and the eggs it mutates from other organisms to be typical facehuggers, as this is efficient on both a genetic and biological level. It's easier to take a complex organism and make it into an even more advanced one than to take a lesser creature of a different species, devolve it into basics, and then grow the most advanced creature from there.

The drone "infected" Brett, slowly causing his body to morph into a superfacehugger egg. This can be seen in the Special Edition of Alien. A drone cannot directly morph into a Queen, but can use this method of infection in the hopes of procreating one in the future.

Exactly. The superfacehugger carries both a Queen embryo & a regular alien embryo, which will serve as the Queen's guard until she has "birthed" & matured enough to construct her ovipositior & begin to lay eggs.

... and the super facehugger carries the Alien Queen embryo, correct?

It's a subject that could easily branch off into several different paths depending solely on opinion, although I've already stated mine.

I simply detest any other theories apart from the generalisations we have come to know from what we have seen and read in relation to the Alien movie franchise.
