The Omega film franchise (also known as Omegas) is a science fiction horror film series consisting of four installments, focusing on Lieutenant Maya Onegin (played by Emma Watson) and her battles with an extraterrestrial lifeform, commonly referred to as the "Omega". Produced by 20th Century Fox, the series started with the 2015 film Omega, which led to three movie sequels, as well as numerous books, comics and video game spin-offs.
Related to the franchise is the two part Omegas VS Hunter series which combines the Omegas with the Hunters from the Hunter film series. Together the two Omegas VS Hunter films serve as prequels to the Omega series. The only actor from the Omega films to appear in one of the prequels was Thomas Sangster, who had played the android Stryker in Omegas, a man named David Ashford claiming to be the android's creator in Omega III and Klaus Ashford in Omega Reborn. Sangster returned for the Omegas VS Hunter films, in which he played Charles Stryker-Ashford and Abraham Stryker-Ashford. The only recurring actress in all four films is Emma Watson, who portrays the series' central character Maya Onegin.

On its way back to Earth, the US commercial starship Norco is diverted to a desolate planetoid after receiving a cryptic signal from a derelict alien spacecraft. While exploring the alien ship, one of the Norco's crewmen discovers the remains of the ship's pilot and also a large chamber that contains thousands of egg-like objects. One of the eggs releases a creature that attaches itself to his face and renders him unconscious. They break quarantine to bring him back aboard the ship, the parasite dies and he wakes up, seemingly fine. Soon afterwards, an alien organism bursts out of his chest and grows extremely rapidly into a terrifying eight-foot tall creature, and starts killing off the crew one by one.

After two years in hypersleep, the sole survivor of the Norco, Lieutenant Maya Onegin, awakens aboard a medical space station orbiting Earth. Her story of the Omega terror she encountered is disbelieved and she learns that the planetoid from the first movie (now designated as LV-1004) is now home to a terraforming colony. When contact with the colony is lost, Maya accompanies a squad of high-tech Elite Colonial Marines aboard the spaceship Turango to investigate. Once there, they discover the colonists have been wiped out after they had found the derelict omega ship (and its deadly cargo) from the first film.

Due to a fire aboard the Turango, an escape pod carrying the survivors of the second film is automatically jettisoned. It crash-lands on the refinery/prison planet Jazbina "Jazz" 666, but Maya is the only one to survive the crash. Unbeknownst to her, an omega facehugger parasite was also aboard the ship. Before long, a full-sized Omega is then loose in the prison, killing the inmates one by one. Maya also discovers there is an Omega Supreme growing inside her, and must not only kill the rampaging Omega but also herself in order to save humanity.
Omega Reborn (2021)

Eight hundred years after the events of the previous film, Maya Onegin (and the Omega Supreme she was carrying) are cloned by the Ashford Industries. The Omega Supreme is surgically removed from her body as the United Nations Space Command hopes to breed Omegas to study on the spaceship USM Solace, using human hosts kidnapped and delivered to them by a group of mercenaries. The Omegas escape their enclosures, while Maya 7 (a clone who contains some Omega DNA herself) and the mercenaries attempt to escape and destroy the Solace before it reaches its destination, Earth.

Omegas VS Hunter (2022)
- Main Article: Omegas VS Hunter (2022 Film)
In 2022, a Hunter ship arrives in LV-1004's orbit to draw humans to an ancient Hunter training ground on Bouvetøya, an island about one thousand miles north of Antarctica. A buried pyramid which gives off a "heat bloom" attracts humans led by Charles Stryker-Ashford (Thomas Sangster), who unknowingly activates an omega egg production line. Three Hunters initiates enter the structure, killing all humans in their way with the intention of hunting the newly formed omega warriors. Two Hunters die in the ensuing battle, while the third allies itself with the lone surviving human, Seline Wayne (Anne Hathaway) in order to battle the escaped Omega Supreme. The Supreme is defeated, but not before it fatally wounds the last Hunter. The orbiting Hunter ship uncloaks and the crew retrieve the fallen Hunter. A Hunter elder gives Seline a spear as a sign of respect, and then departs. Once in orbit it is revealed that a chestburster was in the corpse, though this specimen has Omega mandibles.
