That people would think Ripley would leave without being sure boggles the mind.

Slightly less mind boggling, but still fairly mind boggling is people would be so dismissive of her sacrifice on Fiorina.

Quoteit does?

Dialogue in the film implies it's destroyed.
The novelisation directly confirms it.

ah yes I remember now.

Well as I said I always assumed she assumed it was destroyed, since  40 megatons is a pretty damn big explosion.*shrugs*

I still don't believe she would have had access to the Sulaco's nukes.

Probably not.  But if she wasn't sure it was gone, she would've waited until Hicks was well enough to do it.

In my head canon, Bishop suggested to her that he could hack into the ship's computer and "promote her" to a USCM lieutenant.  This would in turn grant her the authority to arm and launch the Sulaco's nukes.  ;D

This missing scene would have the added benefit of providing a clear explanation as to why she's suddenly "Leftenant Ripley" in Alien 3.

I just figured the Lieutenant was short for Flight Lieutenant (Commercial) based on her WY reinstatement.

I know.  I just wanted a clearer alternative explanation for it since no one ever calls her that in Aliens.

You know that is pretty plausible, that actually does make sence. :o

Ripley's rank is a mess.

She's a Warrant Officer in Alien (although we don't find out until Aliens), she's a Lieutenant in Alien 3, and then Resurrection says she's a Lieutenant First Class.

To say nothing of her constantly changing registration number.

The line about her being a Warrant Officer is mentioned in the script for Alien, but was ultimately cut.

No she says 'warrant officer' during the end transmission, doesn't she?

Van Leuwen called her "Officer Ripley" at the inquest, so there's that.
