Now learn the Portia trick, and don't be so sure that you can judge power in a mind that doesn't share our evolutionary history.

Okay. What's scary is that it might be powerful.

The xenomorph queen plays along - until she doesn't.

And how well does she do? How well would she have done had she cooperated from the beginning?

I haven't watched the movies. I suppose it's possible that the humans would just never be willing to cooperate with Xenomorphs on a large scale, but I doubt that.
