There's some paranormal activity going on in Alien 3.

And it slows everything down, not stop it.
You could conceivably math out the rate it slows it down, too. :P

'Alien'-era stasis technology slows aging at a rate of 12.3% of normal, since Ripley (well, Sigourney Weaver) ages 7 years (1979-1986) for the 57 years she spends in cryo.

This method of mathing it out falls apart a little when you apply it to 'Alien3', though.

More evidence that it was just a dream?

Genetic memory my friend. You remember when Ripley merged her pulse rifle with a incinerator using duct tape  ??? Well the thing is the Queen saw that, and she inherited her last memories to the next offspring, which leads us to the obvious conclusion... 👆

....Alien 3 is not a dream ~

I don't remember if Sil or SM, but one of them knows the answer.

It's made of Predator metals.

It's made of Predator metals.

So when Yutani gets the Pred tech at the end of AvPR, they just use it to make space grappling hooks?

Local Trouble

It has the dual virtue of explaining the grappling hook and canonizing AvPR.
