I always understood the Queen's womb as coming from the same place Ripley's acid blood and genetic memory came from: the two clones sort of bleeding into each other, and that was the first pair the scientists managed to clone that weren't too freakishly unmelded to be viable.

As for the Newborn, I have no freaking idea. Was Ripley supposed to be pregnant before dying, or did one of the scientists have sex with the cloned Queen, or what?

The thing is, it was never fully explained properly - presumably because, you know, movie!genetics or whatever, but I suppose the Newborn was like, meant to be the offspring of the new type of Queen deviated from the clone Ripley. As in, Ripley gets strength, agility, etc - the Queen gets a womb.

But it just never felt correctly explained as to why we still had drones - as in Aliens born from people the facehuggers impregnated, thus needing eggs (like Alien, Aliens, and even Alien 3 with the dog/ox Alien), and yet the nature of the new Queen meaning it produced children like a human woman does - not eggs. I know the crew Winona Ryder and Ron Perlman are a part of bring in test subjects, but this doesn't explain how we do have the distinct kinds of Alien, despite the changed Queen Alien being really important to the story.

So yeah - the Newborn would basically be the 'new' Alien model that the changed Queen from Clone!Ripley would produce, if it didn't cut it's mother's face off after birth. But.. Yeah. Exactly where the Queen gets the necessary material to make said baby from.. Not sure. Especially since the usual process does require a host/donor. Maybe it's asexual.
