Actually, it came to me as I read what John wrote: "I always thought
the Aliens were too perfect an organism with a range of really unlikely
capabilities so that it seemed more like the product of intelligent
rather than random chance." That just smacked me of "bioweapon". Some
created the Aliens to wipe out a competition, believing they would be
to control said bioweapon, and...well, they didn't so well succeed.

I know where you got the ship name, but missing the analogy between the
and the movie. :-/
