"The trick to preparing Xenomorph at this life stage," the butcher said as he sawed off another leg, "is to cut out the ovipositor. Otherwise, your dinner's just going to be hungry again in an hour."
Sometimes a great director can speak volumes with a single image, right at the beginning of a story. The best movies and TV shows often start off with a single stark frame, that stays with you as you watch the story unfold. But what's the best opening shot in science fiction or fantasy history?
