Appearance and Biology
The Queen Xenomorph was black in coloration, with large avian-like talons used for snatching prey as this monster swoops. Unlike most Xenomorphs, she had membraned wings and a membraned tail like a bat and her crest had a row of blunted spikes running down their length.
The comic the Kenner figure comes with is incomplete, but we can see the Flying Queen attacking ATAX who is wearing an exoskeleton modeled after a Queen.
- Flying Aliens have appeared in various arcades such as Aliens, where there were Drones with membraned wings and Chestburster-like parasites with the same attributes. There was also a flying Alien in the SNES game Alien vs Predator, where a pink flying Alien appears as the fourth boss. However, both of these games are likely non-canon.
