The First Acheron Queen atop her ovipositor. The ovipositor,  also known as the ovithorax  and more commonly referred to as the Egg sac is the part of a Xenomorph Queen that creates and then lays Eggs.
While a Queen is perfectly capable of surviving without an ovipositor, she cannot produce more Eggs in this state. A Queen's ovipositor is enormous, easily dwarfing the size of her body.
Typically stretching for many tens of feet, the structure is analogous to the large egg-producing abdomen of queen termites. Eggs are produced inside the ovipositor constantly in a fashion similar to a mass production line, first forming at the base of the sac, where it connects to the Queen herself and developing as they move towards the rear.
Eggs are produced continuously and at a rapid rate; a laying Queen is capable of producing up to 15 Eggs per hour. However, in very short order, fertile Eggs will be created. Unlike the Queen herself, who is protected by a resilient mesoskeleton capable of repelling moderate forms of gunfire,  the ovipositor is made of soft, penetrable tissue that is comparatively easily damaged. Queens are able to remain mobile during the early stages of ovipositor alien development,  but owing to the immense size and weight of a producing sac, they soon become unable to move.
As it grows, the ovipositor is typically suspended from the roof of the Hive by resin "straps".
The Queen's immobility leaves her doubly dependant on her brood for defense and care. Other Xenomorphs also tend to the Eggs once they are laid, moving them from beneath the ovipositor to "nursery" areas within the Hive.
Notably, despite the ovipositor constituting a huge proportion of the Queen's overall mass, destroying it is not fatal to the Queen herself. Xenopedia Explore. The Queen Ripley Newt Cpl.
