I actually think the previous short was better, the spaceship and space shots was amazing and clear storyline and I would had loved to see what had happened onboard the main ship previously.
But I dont get how they onboard the escape pod cant remember if they got facehugged or not, should be pretty clear as in previous movies several hosts know and remember getting facehugged.
Also why the f**k both of the other survivors just panics and dont try to catch the chestburster, its not a full grown xeno and very weak, but no....
Would had myself hunt it down, break its neck and voila we are safe. There is nowhere it can hide on the ship and would take hours for it to grow up and it also would need to cocoon itself like the runner in alien 3 to reach adulthood. Find and kill it.
From the after credits shot I presume she was also facehugged earlier as I cant see how that chestburster could overpower a full grown woman.
This short movie:
I liked it but some things I noted or cant make sense of:
I always theorised the facehugger can spit small amounts of acid, hence in alien it managed to get inside kanes helmet, else it would never got inside and no movie, nice confirmation on that.
But why in hell is the acid white and not green?
Also the white substance coming out from the barrel the facehugger was inside, what was that? The eggs dont look like that, can only guess the company tried to secure the facehugger with some substance. Couldnt be this movies version of lots of acid....
Only way a dog could beat a facehugger and bite it to death would been if the dog is an android, else the facehugger would had gotten it. But also there: why is the acid remains and the acid on the dog white?! Should be green/yellowish like in previous movies and that amount of acid would had eaten through the floor easily. Also that shovel would had melted.
