Seems like humanity got only so far and not much further. I'm starting to wonder if the company just owns everything.

"Weyland Yutani Corporation: We Own Everything"

Don't be ridiculous, Huggs. Everyone knows that Disney owns everything.

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.

Are you suggesting Bishop did something with her underwear?

The ship would naturally print her a new set of undies too.

All these ideas of Riley doing a scan and use the sulacos systems: I doubt she knew how all those systems work or how to do a scan, she isnt military but civilian and advicor on the mission and I highly doubt all the tech onboard are opened for anyone to use, minimum codes for the higher operations would been needed and then one also need to know what one is doing and what commands to press etc. Hell some people today struggles when using an iphone vs samsung in the menu....
And bishop was probably deactivated or barely working after the damage and hicks is out too so have a feeling ripley just focused on doing visual checks and then making everyone ready for the home trip and after all that they went through, they might not be thinking 100% straight either.

But thats my own theory on it :P
.

I think Ripley familiarised herself with quite a lot of the Sulaco's capabilities and systems prior to the mission. She knew the ship could nuke a site from orbit with a high degree of accuracy, a plain civilian probably wouldn't know that. She also knew how to operate the medical scanner on the EEV. Also, with Hicks incapacitated, I assume Ripley was granted access to all the authority to execute commands.
Thats the only way I can see ripley doing all scans etc: hicks or bishop gives her the codes to be able to log on into all systems and program sulaco, and if the computer systems are like the ones from the 80s and heck we have at my job which is pre dos: one need to have a sheet that shows all commands like:
After you log in, you need to put in a code to get to the settings page like: crtl + a
From there you can start the desired program but once inside you need to put in a code for each page like for a ship:
ctrl+C to get to current readings, then to get to a different page like thrusters: ctrl+G. and the program/hud dont show any codes just the page you put int he code to get to.
Unless you either know the codes by memory or have that sheet with all codes for each page, then not even a computer expert can do anything but to press random keys.
ahhh the good old 80s programs :P Always works but so tricky and slow to use. Nothing like todays windows or mac computers :P

But they might have easier to use systems than what I described, and then as I said: it shouldnt be a problem for ripley to figure out and use, as long as she have the required passwords etc.

Egg somehow ended up on board of Sulaco so masterpiece known as Alien 3 could happen. Period

The Queen dropped the eggs on the Sulaco. It's pretty obvious.
