It's an unnecessary complication to the shooting script, which just had no egg- implying stowaway Facehuggers instead of a stationary object, (the egg) the shot shouldn't be in the film.

Thank you for your answers. Now I half-remember having read some of these pages years ago...

And having giggled at a particularly funny post, "They just can't admit that Bishop did it", and the banner another member did, Easter Egg fashion, with a joking Bishop carrying the egg wrapped like a present or something.  ;D

Personally I find it way less terrible than the changed shape of the cryotubes, because you can always bullshit a quick explanation for Alien stuff (which doesn't mean it isn't a plothole, don't kill me, I know what a plothole is, and the egg placement definitely is one, now that you explain the thing), but I don't see a quick explanation for shapeshifting machines.

Complaining about the Cryotubes always seemed silly to me, like the pulse rifle sound effect. It's purely aesthetic and doesn't matter.

I'm not sure the egg qualifies as a plot hole.

One hugger implanting multiple embryos however possibly does though.

A plothole is something that goes against what's been established and isn't addressed.  I think that could qualify.

There could have been more than one egg off camera or an egg and a facehugger could have made it onto the ship.  Either way, wrong thread folks.

Or no Egg, two Facehuggers. One dead on the Sulaco, burned away in the electrical fire and one on the EEV.
The mistake of a single studio insert, that caused a decade's worth of inane arguments.

Sigh

Two huggers coming from one egg possibly qualifies as a plot hole too.

No doubt, but an arguably smaller hole, if that is how one sees the events playing out.

It's not exactly far-fetched. I could buy into sometimes you get 2 huggers but I'd want to see it done deliberately.
