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)
Call (Winona Ryder) turns out to be a robot. Ripley discovers that the alien queen has mutated and has given birth to an alien/human hybrid. The hybrid chases Ripley onto the Betty. After it kills the remaining marine, Ripley cuts herself and with her blood destroys the airlock window. The hybrid is sucked out into space and only Call, Ripley, Vreiss and Johner escape while the military ship crashes into France. In the theatrical release Call and Ripley look outside the ship's window and gaze at an island. In the special edition they land in (a now nuked) Paris. Call tells Ripley that it's the type of place they get could lost in.
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?
