Question: Was there an intention by the writer or director to make an allusion to the Japanese cartoon "8th Man", as he was the 8th experiment and first success? Or is it coincidence that the similarity exists?
Question: Why was Ripley cloned?
Question: Why did the newborn alien kill the Queen but not Ripley?
Question: Curious on why the surgical equipment doesn't melt when removing the Queen chest burster from Ripley when she has acidic blood?
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?
