Humanity was nearing the end of the earth wars trying to retake earth from the xenos, Ripley and Co were going to do it by putting a queen from the xeno home world on top of a huge pile of bombs to draw the xenos in before blowing the whole thing.
The Space Jockey stopped that plan (Mostly) and during the whole earth war has been hidden on his ship in orbit slowly therraforming (Xenos helped with that too especially once their numbers really grew.) the planet ready to clean up the xenos and humans and move in.
Humans figured it out and this is what they did about it.
Hell even the Yautja dont really know, imo I like the ancient bioweapon theory the natural creature taken out of its eco system and run amok doesnt hold up over the entire EU and has been contradicted way too many times within the EU.
Its a scientific setting but its still got lots of mysteries.
Either explanation works. The comic was interesting, although my favorite bit of fiction is the Alien Vs. Predator arcade game, if only because the Aliens fuck up L.A. and the Predators show up to clean an invasive species out of their game preserve.
The natural predator taken out of its eco system has been pretty much debunked at this point, considering we have multiple xeno "Homeworlds" in different EU comics for example and the bioweapon evidence is very consistent.
Everything about that game is awesome, even the system was deeper than almost any other 2d fighter with loads of hidden moves and button combos.
He doesnt want to help them, hes just waiting for xeno numbers to be thinned enough by the humans so he can wipe them all out in one go because his species has a deep fear of the xenos that despite all their crazy tech and powers turns them into retarded fodder at even the sight of the weakest xeno.
Now I'm a bit confused. This thing ISN'T an engineer right? he's only a pilot right?
the engineers are the giant bald human looking who have no trouble killing every Xeno on a plant barehanded.
Hes what the engineer was before they changed up some backstory via promethiums.
>the engineers are the giant bald human looking who have no trouble killing every Xeno on a plant barehanded.
Thats just so fucking wrong if true.
