The Genetic Xenomorphs are a mutated Xenomorph breed that were spawned from the Queen extracted from the clone of Ellen Ripley. The cloning process resulted in the Queen as well as the Drones it had spawned to be altered with human DNA.
The appearance of the Genetic Xenomorphs bears a strong resemblance to normal human-spawned Xenomorphs, except their neck area around the average Genetic Drone is much fleshier than the bio-mechanical neck design seen in normal Xenomorphs due to the imbalance of human DNA. Their body is more quadripedal like the Runner rather than bipedal like the Xenomorphs on LV-426. Their tails have flat ridge of spines at the base of the tail's blade. Both the Genetic Queen and her Drones had a blend of green and brown coloring unlike their Acheron counterparts, giving them a shimmering, insect-like quality.
Intelligence & AbilitiesEdit
They are described as being more aggressive than normal Xenomorphs, mostly because they roar rather than screech and are willing to kill one of their own kind as displayed when a couple of Genetic Drones killed a weaker Drone in order to use its acidic blood to melt through the enclosure's floor in order to escape. Instead of stealth tactics, they prefer to use brute force to overwhelm their prey. Their human traits gave them the ability to think tactically to outmaneuver their human opponents on a number of occasions using the installations and complex technical systems of the Auriga spaceship against them. As evident when a Drone was able to learn to operate the nitrogen spray after "learning" it from Dr. Gediman.
Though the Genetic Xenomorphs are shown to have the same abilities as the normal Xenomorphs, their unique ability was their ability to swim gracefully in aquatic environments. The Genetic Queen is also shown to have some sort of telepathic connection with its surrogate mother, Ripley 8.
200 years after 2179 aboard the Auriga, the United Systems Military was finally able to perfectly clone Ellen Ripley after numerous failed attempts and successfully extracted the Queen embryo within her. The USM begins the re-population process of the Xenomorphs by impregnating the many human victims they acquired from Frank Elgyn and his group of mercenaries via eggs produced by the new Queen.
The Xenomorphs eventually escaped from their captivity and wreaked havoc on board the Auriga and resulted in the ship to automatically set a course to Earth. Due to the effects of the human DNA, the Queen undergoes a drastic transformation in her reproductive cycle, her egg sack changing into a functioning female human-like womb and as a result it ceases to lay eggs. The Queen gave birth to a "new" form of Human-Xenomorph hybrid, but the Queen was killed by it. The remaining Genetic Xenomorphs were all wiped out when the Auriga crashed into the Earth's atmosphere.
