I always liked the alternative theory about the origin of the Xenomorph's after the original film, there was a theory among fan's that they had
originated from hyperspace as the ancient alien ship had passed through it and were actually not native to our universe but from somewhere else.
Of course that would have wrecked the later movies that rewrote the original masterpiece to create film's that lacked the tension, the terror and the
mystery of the first movie.
It remain's a masterpiece in it's own right, one that was never meant to have a sequel and one that was heavily copied in successive years though it
has to be said one that owed itself a lot to earlier science fiction movies such as The Thing From Another World made in 1951 and better known as the
original Thing movie later remade by John Carpenter.
Originally the original space jockey was supposed to be a completely alien species as well and not a giant human in a space suit, it had been the
victim of we presumed the alien that had lain the egg's in the derelict space ship which may have lain dormant or thousands of even millions' of years
before the Nostromo picked up it's signal and misinterpreted the alien warning message as a distress beacon.
The Later movies were good in there own right but were not true sequels as they had to re-imagine the alien xenomorph and later the space jockey
(originally a non human species fossilized in it's control seat) to suit there plot lines.
And were would the series have been with the Work of H R Giger and his exceptionally weird and hideous art concept's.
