Alien Resurrection

Audio problem: Near the end of the film, when we see the Queen's new mutation, the scene opens up by showing all the scientists attached to the wall. Dr. Gediman is rambling on and on about the Queen's 'perfect' mutation. However, it is quite clear he isn't saying any of the words. In fact, from the way his mouth moves, it looks like he's literally saying 'blah blah blah, blah blah blah'. (01:27:05)

Audio problem: When Dr. Wren takes Cal's gun, he says, 'You really are way too trusting', but his mouth movements seem to show him saying something else. It appears to be something along the lines of 'far too trusting,' as opposed to 'way too trusting.' (01:09:30)

Audio problem: In the nest, the creepy guy talking does not sync his words with his lips half the time.

Continuity mistake: Ripley kills the alien in the corridor after it has killed the first member of the Betty crew but there is no melting of decks or bulkheads from the creature's acidic blood. Also, the Betty crew seem unaffected by all the acid. (00:46:00)

Trivia: Sigourney Weaver actually makes the basketball shot. Even though the ball is out of shot for a second, she made the shot with no assistance. The shot cuts quickly because Ron Perlman dropped character in celebration, which can be seen in deleted scenes online.

Question: If Ripley was operated on and an alien removed a few days ago, how come they have a fully grown queen who is laying eggs, 8 to be precise as there are 8 people who have been ingested and turned into aliens? But later, when most of the crew have ejected successfully or been killed when a hand grenade was thrown into their escape pod along with an alien, one of the scientists says there are 12 more? How can that be?

Chosen answer: Well firstly the queen was probably genetically engineered, like Ripley herself. A few days might be all the time they need to have a fully grown queen created. Secondly the 8 incubated victims were only the latest batch, they had been incubating people with xenomorphs for quite a time I suspect.

With regards to the quick growth of the alien queen, it is standard for the xenomorph in nearly every film they appear (Aliens is the only exception, the only chestburster shown in the film is quickly killed by Apone) to grow to full size in around one day. Presumably the same is true for the queen.
