But there's different cases of twins if we're going with that example. I assume you're implying the Hugger could carry fraternal twins?

Yeah. I doubt if they could deliberately split one embryo into two. The hugger could possibly pump one out, still feel horny, and go and look for another host to "express its urges" on.

We don't know strictly how it works. If it was as simply as just transfering the embryo into the host, it'd be possible to just cut the embryos from the Huggers rather than go through all the trouble of infecting people.

We never do get to actually see the biology lecture on the life cycle of the alien species. I still think that the most interesting aspect is that the chest-burster takes on attributes of its host to be a more lethal hunter. I'm guessing the face-hugger doesn't know that it didn't land on an all-dog planet, which advantageously made it even more dangerous because any dog long-legged dog can outrun a human.

Maybe the Queen was not the only alien to sneak aboard the craft? Perhaps an Adult alien just happened to grab an egg or two and follow the queen on board. 

The Queen has to leave her hive, and because she has the secondary set of smaller arms, she can grab two eggs to bring with her, and her bigger primary arms are then still freed up.

BUT During the scene where Ripley is being chased by the Queen, we can see her secondary hands are empty, so this does not hold. The other reason is that near the Queen it does not look like there were any more good eggs to grab any way. I think it is an optional use for the secondary arms, but because of the above this did not happen.

So where did the eggs/egg come from? Bishop? Queen? Another Adult alien that did not make its presence known?

Were there more than one facehugger, more than one egg, or a single egg with two huggers, or one egg with one hugger with two embryos?

I think it is one of the great mysteries of the Alien Saga.

It is like a Magician; if you explain your tricks it is no longer as interesting.

Or, maybe like insects (which Cameron had virtually made the aliens into), the queen laid the egg. Wouldn't that be something.

She had plenty of time in her flight in the dropship landing gear compartment. The egg was smaller, since it didn't have time to mature in an egg sac. It was upside-down probably due to her having to pop it out in an unnatural position.

That one makes the most sense to me.

The alien egg opening noise is on the end of both special edition included in the alien quadrilogy thats region 2.

I can buy the queen managing to pop a couple of eggs out. However I would have thought that the ship which could detect the aliens as witnessed in the scene in alien 3 where Ripley asks Bishop if an alien was onboard, would have been able to warn them that the eggs were also on board. I like the theory that Bishop did want the alien returned to earth, I mean why else spend the majority of your time dissecting the alien? he wouldnt have learned anything in that short space of time and he would have been much better suited to be sent in with the marines as a scout.

 Unless, for some unknown reason the Sulaco was programmed NOT to warn them, even if it did detect the Alien there.

I smell a conspiracy!

Conspiracy in an Alien movie? ABSURD!

For starters, the alien in question was the facehugger. All the ship knew was that there was something moving in that part of the ship. The computer didn't know what it was, so it just let the facehugger be.

As much as we like to see Bishop as a bad guy, there isn't enough evidence to support this. Bishop didn't know that there was an alien [facehugger] onboard until Ripley had wired him to the EEV's black box. If Ripley had (rightfully) felt betrayed by Bishop, she would have taken the time to beat the shit out of what was left of him.
