They would.  But as the films currently stand, the Derelict was no longer a source of eggs.

Q
The destruction of the AP Station rendered the Derelict unviable for specimens.

They would.  But as the films currently stand, the Derelict was no longer a source of eggs.

Is it too much of a stretch for an intervening film to be the reason for that, though?

No.  But until that film exists, they can't get eggs from the Derelict.

Hinted at in Alien 3.  Confirmed in Alien Resurrection.

Time isn't a factor.  If the specimens were destroyed, they're not going to 'get better'.

So... maybe they weren't destroyed at all.

Maybe the company guys in Alien Resurrection are simply incorrect, misinformed or have been deliberately misled.

I think Alien 3 can be somewhat waved away with the urgency of getting and containing the Queen ASAP. But yeah, the ballache that the USM go through to clone Ripley wouldn't have been necessary if they could have just visited LV-426 again.

So that either means that the AP explosion in Aliens meant the Derelict wasn't a source of eggs anymore (radiation sterilising the eggs, the Derelict was actually destroyed) or there's some unknown incident that took place in-between Alien 3 and Resurrection that also meant the Derelict is no longer a source of the eggs. I think there's plenty of room for the second option.

Bingo! Let's start writing a treatment now!!

Fox haven't definitively said they're not doing it yet, but whatever they planned prior to Covenant is being re-assessed.

Ridley said he wanted to make 2 more films.

The storyline is probably being condensed into just 1 more film to wrap up the prequels.

This is for the best. Ridley isnt getting younger, as well...



I just hope we get John Logan back.

The atmospheric processor unit's explosion released enough radiation on lv426 to make any attempted harvest impossible. So it is just assumed that the eggs are dead. Big_deletion, am I hot? :P

A dead planet, blitzed with radiation, does make for a good cover story.
