Hi all. Just finished watching Alien and Aliens again on Blu-Ray (outstanding transfers by the way, looks like they were made yesterday). Watching the two back-to-back brought up some questions I don't quite have the answers for...let's discuss! Did the Weyland-Yutani company already know about the existence of the Aliens? Or did they first find out about them from the initial contact on LV-426 from the distress beacon? I can't tell if it was a set-up or not...it seems that with the android secretly planted on board the Nostromo, ready to carry out the company's orders, they knew exactly what they were doing.... And if that is the case, why did the company never send another ship to LV-426 in the 57 years Ripley was in cryo-sleep? Sure, there was a terraforming colony set up, but it seems they knew nothing about the derelict spacecraft until Burke's call to go investigate the site.... Opinions?
