If she was the hives survival she was quite capable of ensuring her lifes continuation. She is the Xenomorph queen and shes smart. If she was the hives chance of survivial she would have retreated, that would have ensured the hives success.

Retreat WHERE, exactly?

They kind'a just blew up half the island. And for all she knew, they would hunt her down. So, her best chance was to get rid of any threat, then restart the hive elsewhere on the island.

A hive can survive without a drone, but not without a Queen.

on the same hand, its stated at least in the novel Prey, if not the comic too, that a single drone can morph into a queen in a situation where there is no queen, so if even one drone had survived...

im not saying one did, just that if.. lol

Yes, but CANON says otherwise

I still don't see what's so hard to get. I really don't.

1) She doesn't need the drone. She can mass produce eggs in a short amount of time: It can't. The risk isn't worth it. Kill the threat, set up a hive somewhere else, and wait.

2) She hit lower than the burster. Never put it in harm's way.

The thing is we dont know if it is a drone, the yautja are humanoid, they eat red meat, drink and breathe. The bodily organs arent going to be THAT different from the humans, it could be either a drone or a queen. It hard to tell thoguh because they completly Farked around with gestation periods in the movie. And another thing i want to know is where allt he aliens came from in that movie? there were like 10 people in the MAIN group and Maxwell was killed by a pred, so was weyland. The 5? people int he sacrificial chamber infected. Verhieden infected, miller and thats about it. About 50 frickin aliens come out of no where. it was kinda trippin.

There are only three extra Aliens.

And it's not a Queen. Queen chestbursters have crowns, as shown in Alien 3 and A:R. I even posted an image of it.

Well if your so sure about the anatomy difference, how do you know a predalien queen would have a crown? Predators have tentacles at the back of their heads, human hosts have nothing at the back of their heads. That could be an extreme difference in the embryo's outcome

PredAliens don't have the dredlocks - at least, not yet. Movies are the only solid evidence we have, and if the movies say that a Queen burster has a crown, it has a crown. Because the PredAlien burster had no crown, then it's not a Queen.

Until we find out otherwise, of course

True. But overall i think anderson went too far. He went to too many extremes and simply left out time to explain them. He altered visual appearances, gestation and one of the notable ones, THE SIZE OF THE SELF DESTRUCT! in predator 1 it took out like 2 blocks of rainforrest not 20 kilometres of Ice. I like him as a person but not as a director. I also didnt like the "child" like rating. Alien and Predator are no push over movies. Theres brains blood and WAY more action. I thought the whole avp movie should have been pred vs aliens the whole way out. Not this childish people running around like idiots crap. There were two good fight scenes in the movie, Celtic vs Grid and Scar vs Queen. Although i enjoyed the movie there is alot more that could have been done. Oh and i checked IMDB and it says Anderson is on No.2 aswell. Lets see what he does with it this time.

It gives him a "written by (characters)" credit, like O'Bannon and the Thomas's.
