Clearly if Randy said it must be true.

Just checking in to add my regular 6-monthly reminder that the most logical explanation is simply that there is a story between Aliens and Alien 3 that we haven't seen yet. This is why everyone is now in a different cryosleep room, and will explain why there were xenos on board the Sulaco. No 'emergency egg', no 'Queen stinging Bishop', no egg morphing, no walking eggs, no Bishop miraculously finding the time to get two eggs and sneak them on board then for unknown reasons planting them in an unlikely position... Just simple events between movies, another encounter.

Until next time...

Yeah, what we need is Magic Egg: An Alien Story ! Right, everybody ?

I think the Queen found Turk's twin (Amanda's grandson) hanging around, and then she used her royal jelly for ovomorphing purposes. So the runner, besides being Turk²'s son, is also Ripley's great-great-grandson.

Ohhhhhhh, like Out of the Shadows? Yeah, that makes sense. It has to fit before ACM, though. Cos that's canon. Totally.

Only if it's Ripley8's new time-travelling nemesis what done it.

Same as the following 2 hours...   ;)

Except that runs into the same problem as all the other aforementioned theories in that it doesn't fit/isn't logical at all, since that would require Ripley to dream up a superhugger that she has never seen before exactly as it appears when held by one of the prisoners in the abattoir, the burn to appear on the cryotube exactly where Ripley dreamed it, and for the cryotubes themselves in the EEV that we see Ripley lay in on Fiorina 161 for a medscan aided by Aaron to be 'not literal'. The simplest way to explain everything that we see (outside of the reality of "production issues") would be to accept that it can't be explained by what we have seen so far alone (as is evident by this infinitely looping thread) therefore adding a small piece (whether that be in the form of a comic book, a novel, a short, an audio drama) could remedy this - Colonial Marines had this opportunity and just messed it up further, but there's nothing stopping it being done properly.  :)

We can see Ripley move during the opening scene though, when the cryotube breaks, half awake.



The opening scenes use a standard facehugger design, in none does it use the "Super Facehugger" that we see later.

That's not what we see in the opening credits - which further lends to it not being literal.

Quotethe burn to appear on the cryotube exactly where Ripley dreamed it,
The opening credits don't give enough detail to say exactly where it is, just that there is a burn.

Quoteand for the cryotubes themselves in the EEV that we see Ripley lay in on Fiorina 161 for a medscan aided by Aaron to be 'not literal'.
That's easily handwaved as a production design consideration though. It doesn't need an in universe expansion.

It was a fever dream in hypersleep explains away the one thing that actually needs explaining - the position of the egg - without relying on introducing anything to the plot.

It's been mentioned.

And it absolutely doesn't work because no way would Ripley have gone to bed without checking inside the dropship where the Queen had been hiding.

And also it is clearly, CLEARLY not in the dropship in the film.

It's the only place it could possibly be.

Yet it can't possibly have been there.

Schrodinger's ovomorph.
