O.k... Monster Zero/S.M - I was going to follow-up or rather I should have added more clarity to the subject I was mentioning. Of course there would have to be other set pieces, action, suspense, drama, chills, etc. and I didn't mean to sound as though all Ripley would do through the entire film was just transcend/ascend, no. Of course not! There would, without a doubt, have to be more, and I was wondering if Bloomkamp was going to make a two-part film like Twilight: Breaking Dawn parts 1 & 2.

Alien 3.0 (+1) would be a pondering, building of foreboding and dread much like the first Alien intermittent with action, Alien 3.0 (+2) would be rising to a crescendo much in the same vein as Aleins but I stress not to copy both films but add reversals so elements of Aliens inspiration are in Alien 3.0 (+1) and elements of Alien are in Alien 3.0 (+2).

But with regard to my suggesting of Ripley's "infection" and eventual ascention/transcending  that would take place at the mid point of either one film or midway through the second part film. Like in Star Trek, the motion picture, that woman becomes exactly duplicated half way through the film then in the last say 20minutes Decker goes through the transcending process and disappears. Well, I just figured that as-well-as other insurmountable obstacles being included within the story like Xenomorphs and investigation the possible second Engineer/Space Jockey Juggernaught the inclusion of an infected Ripley storyline could be added. 

Think of it like Excaliber, with King Aurthur, the Engineers try tampering, manipulating, drinking the black liquid and it is always met with the same result: as if the liquid itself knows who is pure-of-heart and who is not (like the Venom tar-thing in Spiderman 3 has a sentient intelligence even though it was evil mainly in that, the thing did still think and display an order of thinking) and-so the black liquid destroys those whom it thinks (if it does think) who are not worthy (Milburn/Fifield too) yet those who are "chosen" by some unknown devine right - even to themselves - it makes them trancscend into their own personal ascention right to a higher order.

Perhaps Ripley is one of the few "chosen ones" who this happens to. The black liquid to Ripley is the same equivalent of only Aurthur being the "chosen one" to pull Excaliber or Excaliber letteing Aurthur pull it out of the rock. It could happen to her midway through say the second film if they did it that way and as in The Fly and The Thing the visiable changes begin to show. Then by the last half an hour say of the films climax as with Shaw in Prometheus she is trying to escape from the Engineer taking off only this time imagine that it is a changed Ripley deliberately trying to take off in a Juggernaught/ancient Juggernaught/ancient "workable" Derilict and eveacuate herself and whatever nightmare may be aboard ship.

Maybe time travel is not what she was originally planning to do just fly away, maybe into the nearest star or a black hole. Maybe time traveling back into the past was an unforeseen consequence/cause and effect she had not anticipated and only succeeded in making matters even worse for the galaxy because now she has served to unleash the alien Xeno onto into the past histories of an unsuspecting universe. And in doing-so perhaps the ancient Engineer/Elders came across an exotic/newly configured Juggernaught design and they began back/forwards engineering the design and hence that is why, for some reason in their past, their ship designs went from round, saucer-shaped  to wish-bone shaped.

Added to that, they discover the alien Xeno eggs and it is at that point in the past that an "evolved" Ripley has served to introduce an element into the ancient Elders lives which bring about the coming of the Engineers/ Titans war of attrition with their own kind and it leads up to the races eventual downfall. This is much like in-keeping with the Planet Of The Apes history being pre-ordained to happen regardless so someone going into the past becomes part of history that will effect their destiny leading up-to and after their birth. They are destined to be caught-up in a convoluted time loop.

Good God. You are an encyclopedia.


I'm having my doubts that S.M is actually human. :)


Please allow theories to go without explicitly detailed scrutiny for less tension in comments.


I really like your theory of Ripley becoming an engineer to create an eternal paradox. Brilliant!

Yes nice ideas.... cant fault your imagination.... HyperNova but i doubt we would see this.. i would also not be a fan of it as in context to potential ramification for the franchise..

But still nice theory.
