    The most soul-stirring scene in all of science fiction movies, and pretty much all action movies, is when Ripley emerges from the service elevator, wearing the massive powered exoskeleton suit, to confront the Alien queen attacking Newt, and screams, “Get away from her, you BITCH!!!” and battles the Xenomorph to the death. The remarkable thing was, this film was made before we had the fantastic CGI SPFX (Computer Generated Imaging Special Effects) in virtually every big screen movie now. The monsters etc. were all done with live actors wearing sophisticated cosplay suits, and a kind of very big robotic puppeteering of the Alien Queen.
    A possible explanation for the true origin of the Aliens/Xenomorphs, is that the race of Elephant-like space aliens that they found the skeleton of in the first ‘Alien’ movie, was a race that used advanced science to create Nanobots that permeated their bodies to augment their biological and mental strengths, and also somehow interlink them with their organic looking space ships, which had the same Nanobots permeating their structures. The Nanotechnology of such a ship was greatly damaged and mutated in some accident, possibly by the ship getting caught in a massive radiation wave from a sun going nova or some atomic bomb explosion, and that mutated these self-replicating Nanobots, so they suddenly became sentient. vicious against all organic life forms, and created the first Alien/ Xenomorph in the pilot’s body.
    The reason why the Alien is made of nearly indestructible armor with molecular acid blood, is that it’s a living replication of the original space ship it evolved from, which had those features, the acid blood enabling it to melt, and re-assembly all its parts from great damages to it. That’s why the Alien in the first movie was completely unaffected by outer space conditions, when Ripley ejected it from the escape pod, it IS a living space ship!
    This dangerous species apparently HAS to gestate in a living organic being, to steal an essence of his life force, to somehow enable its gestation and formation. Also, as a living machine, it might have some kind of inherent bias, against using machines build into it, which might explain why none of the Aliens attacking space marines, never grabbed up one of their guns to use, the gun is a machine!
    But, what makes this nanotechnology spawned species so lethal, is that they are ‘Super Power Incremintors’. Whenever they gestate inside a living being, the self-replicating Nanobots in them acquires the genetic abilities of the host they burst out of, and combines them synergetically, to make the next generation impossibly formidable. Apparently, after many generations of doing that, they acquired the most lethal features of those hosts, like telepathy, various augmented senses, super strength, that telescoping mouth part weapon, a venomous scorpion tail, a physical near-invulnerability, and perhaps unknown abilities, like gills to breathe water, or a way to increase their physical endurance, possibly by tapping into electric energy to feed itself, or even a group mind linked by their telepathy, that makes them SMARTER than the ones shooting them!
    This initial genesis of the Alien/Xenomorph species, might have died out or been killed off by the other space faring races that encountered it, except the Predator race decided to spread them around, because they wanted a more formidable adversary to hunt! Other races encountering this species, including the Founder aliens in the later films, might have kept them around, to derive new drugs or synthetic materials from experiments on them. Anyway, that’s my Alien origin theory!
