Using a delivery method similar to a Facehugger, Chet the Predalien forced embryonic Xenomorphs down its victim's throats. The victims appeared to be only pregnant females, as the Predalien merely killed a female nurse instead of implanting her. Multiple larvae later erupted from the victim's abdomens. Functioning as a juvenile queen, the Predalien utilized these multiple spawnings to quickly increase the Xenomorph population and build the hive, presumably before molting into a full grown, egg-laying Queen.
