|Did You Know?|
- A flamethrower has been used by Ripley in every film in the Alien franchise, with the exception of Alien3, although fire is still used as a weapon in the film.
- Corporal Hicks was originally portrayed by actor James Remar in Aliens. However, Remar was caught in possession of illegal substances and consequently was fired from the production after two weeks of filming. The part was recast with Michael Biehn. Despite the recasting, Remar actually appears as Hicks in the finished version of the film (with his back to the camera), in the wide shot where the Colonial Marines first encounter the Alien Hive.
- According to author James A. Moore, 20th Century Fox originally wanted his novel Alien: Sea of Sorrows to ignore the events of Alien3 and Alien Resurrection and reference only the first two films in the series. However, the studio later changed its mind, and the book had to be altered to include the later movies, a change Moore personally welcomed.
- Some combat androids in the 2010 video game Aliens vs. Predator are equipped with armored helmets very similar to those worn by the Weyland-Yutani Commandos in Alien3.
- The ship names "Nostromo", "Narcissus", "Sulaco", "Patna", "Corazon Oscuro", "Verloc", "Marlow", "Fidanza", "Sephora" and "Torrens" are all references to the work or life of author Joseph Conrad.
