** [[AllThereInTheManual According to the novel,]] they aren't actually sisters, just good friends who like to party together, and [[FetishFuel sometimes claim to be sisters.]] Still, they look enough alike it could go either way.

to:

* Alternatively, the "infinite-energy methane equation" could have just been a ruse to "convince humanity they're dealing with a friendly intelligence" (Fitch says almost exactly this in the film) so that humans would unquestioningly perform the follow-up DNA experiment without pausing to consider the ramifications. Basically, these aliens are assholes.

to:

* Also, Patrick was infected by alien DNA leftover on Mars, which was implied to have wiped out a much earlier Martian civilization. So the alien DNA would have had Martian DNA mixed in with it, turning Patrick not into a straight human/alien hybrid, but a human/Martian/alien hybrid. Could also explain why the infected female astronaut didn't become Sil II (or III, depending on how you like to count.)

It would explain certain inconsistencies. Like why Patrick's true form doesn't look anything like that of Sil's son. And why Sil took much longer to develop from fertilized egg to baby than seems normal for her species (she was presumably implanted in a human surrogate mother, and her species doesn't have whatever mechanisms allowed Patrick's offspring to just suck 7-9 pounds of material out of their hosts in minutes, so her early growth was dramatically slowed down). They are related but distinct species (or subspecies - they're obviously interfertile). This theory is also appealing because it removes the third movie's implication that any offspring Sil had would probably have been sickly and sterile so she could never have been a serious threat to humanity. And it would provide a handy excuse for any fanfic writers who might want to throw out some of the things we learned about the creatures in the second and third movie.
* Since they seem to be artificial constructs to begin with, this makes a fair bit of sense.
* Remember that Sil's son was still a baby. It may well be that once they enter the pupa stage for turning into adults they may well turn into the more quadruped form as Patrick.

* Obviously Patrick is the father: there was no where else she could have come from. Sil's only child was a boy and both were killed. The second egg was Eve and the third went on to become the chick in Species 4. As for the mother, maybe, maybe not. If you think so, go for it.

And the sample they sent is a fragment of [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]] DNA. It was their plan B in case the LV-223 facility WMD wouldn't work. So they sent a piece of genome of their most successful(according to EU successful enough to [[GoneHorriblyRight rebel against them and win]]) bioweapon and let our stupidity do the rest. Also, Sil and her ilk look an awful lot like a perfect mix of human and xenomorph, in appearance, mindset and abilities. The fact they can be tame and reasonable when treated like people and not like lab rats was not a problem for the Engineers, they know [[AbsoluteXenophobe humanity]] all too well...

** On the other hand, the "pure" example of alien DNA grew at a hyperfast rate, devouring every living thing it could reach. This may just be the way it normally spawns, including its fantastic metabolism, and it slows down once it's glutted itself. All the same, this is still dangerous for anything within reach, suggesting the species will actively hunt when it needs to.
