‘Alien’ Plot Synopsis

Alien begins in the distant future as the commercial spaceship, Nostromo, returns to Earth. When it intercepts a distress call from a distant moon, the ship’s android wakes the seven-member crew from hypersleep. They all then head to the source of the signal. While exploring the moon, a small team of the crew comes across a derelict spaceship with a section containing thousands of eggs. When one of the crew nears the egg, the parasite inside it attaches to his face. They bring him back onboard, and the spaceship takes off. After a little while, the parasite dies and the crew member wakes up seemingly no worse for wear. Everything returns to normal, but that doesn’t last for long.

  1. The scene with Dallas being cocooned if kept in would have contradicted Aliens since there were no other aliens or eggs onboard in Alien, how could Dallas have a chestburster in him? Plus I think the dialogue and script implies he’s evolving into something else not that another alien is inside him. Cameron obviously was influenced by this scene, but took it to another direction in Aliens(with the queen etc)
    This podcast is really old! Recorded before Prometheus even came out.
