How many times i gotta bash these goddamn xenophobes who say aliens, legal or otherwise, are just darn anymals? Again i say! Capability for intelligence in a species is affected by the proportion between the mass of the brain and the mass of the body. As xenomorphs' heads represent about 1/3 of the body, if that head is mostly filled with brain, i'd say humans are more animal than xenomorphs are. As the brain grows in a human, from birth to adulthood, it can sustain more and more information and process more complex operations, which is why they don't let children do whatever the hell they want all the time, so the next time you're a teen and think you're smarter than everybody, remember that your stupid brain hasn't grown enough yet, idiot! Aliens' brains grow at a very fast rate, however. Which would explain why as soon as they're drones they can quickly understand everything. But i think that the hivemind that connects them to the queen limits their potential preventing them from pulling tea party and declaration of independence. And no matter how intelligent, every living creature os guided primarily by a selfish instinct. This instinct, for xenomorphs, because of the genetic memory, tells them they need a hive, so they must have a queen. It's a vicious circle. I say the queen is also limited because of the hivemind. But if that link could be broken, who knows what a society xenomorphs would develop lol.
