DISCLAIMER: My first topic so I will try to stay within guidelines.

If you were king of the Alien franchise for a day and could go back in time and change just one storyline, action, situation, plot, or result in the long history of this franchise, what would it be?

We all know there a lot of contentious things out there such as the Alien Queen egg-laying machine and AVP:Requiem. However, if I could change something about this franchise would be to banish that muppet-looking alien/human hybrid from Alien Resurrection to the pits of "never-happened". 

Maybe somebody even wants some cuddly aliens tossed in the mix...

Love to hear what you all would do as "King!"

I might tweek Aliens so that the Alien 3 egg would have been plausible.

@Xenowarrior1.

Some of the premise of the movie (i.e. harvesting the queen from Rip, military trying to weaponize the aliens in secret) was not that bad. I just think the part with the Alien queen berthing that Muppet was where I threw up in my mouth.

They really could have used it as a great venue to explore the morphology and science behind the creature

I agree with dk.The presence of the egg is my biggest issue with Alien 3

Nothing the God of biomechanics wouldn't let you in heaven for

The egg is a problem in Alien 3. Not sure why the director didn't do a better job of tying this up.

I'd take the film rights away from FOX before they had chance to make ALIENS and give it to Ridley with the understanding that Giger was to be included in the production of any future sequels and that he should stick with the egg morphin method of re-production.

The poster was good though!

This one is a big one for a lot of fans. The egg morphing seemed so much more geared towards a Gigeresque environment than a simple oversize queen cranking out eggs. I agree that it would have taken the whole series down a different (and maybe greater) path.

I used to hate Alien 3 because of the egg.I've since come around and am now quite fond of it.Colonial Marines attempted to give reasons behind the egg but they were no good.

I think I would just change Resurrection. I enjoy it for what it is, but I think that could have been a chance to do the sequel-boot. Ripley's story could have ended in 3 and then Alien 4 could have kicked off a new series of films, I think a new start would have been the way to go. 

I do find enjoyment in sequels. Sequels are tough to pull off a lot of the time, but I always appreciate the idea of moving a story forward in a fictional world, delving deeper, trying to create whole new characters and stories within, aw man the potential is just always bursting. 

So I can imagine a world in which the fourth Alien movie kicked off a few more sequels. 

Not a map, an invitation
