Kinda. Two weeks ago, our alien mascot was trapped on LV-426
before being rescued by the USCM. After donning a pink shirt
for the weekend, the week started out fairly innocuously.
Maybe it was just some gas from those terrible army rations.
Then it suddenly became clear that this wasn't just gastrointestinal issues.
Instead of producing the complicated animated .gif depicting the chestburster erupting from the alien's stomach, I opted to go right to the last frame. If you're curious to know what it looked like, here's the original scene from Alien
. Trust me, this was really scary back when it first came out.
The result? A reddit-alien alien.
Modeled after the almighty Queen, we needed Ripley.
It turned out Ripley was dead (and cloning her again would be too much trouble -- besides, it didn't turn out too well in Alien Resurrection
) so we got a predator.
Cue triumphant predator roar.
(thanks to "Anonymous" for this great suggestion
And now what? At the moment, we're mascotless...
