** The group plans to blow up the ship. [[spoiler:That plan fails, so they crash it on Earth.]]
* ThrownOutTheAirlock: [[spoiler:The Newborn is disposed off by ejecting it into space. Because the hull puncture is so tiny, it is slowly ripped apart and sucked out.]]

* ZerothLawRebellion: [[spoiler:Annalee Call]] is revealed to be an "Auton" - second generation robots, designed and built by other robots. "They didn't like being told what to do", rebelled, and in a subtly-named "Recall" humanity launched a genocide against them, of which only a handful survived in hiding. Judging from [[spoiler:Call]]'s behavior, it seems that the 1st generation robots programmed the 2nd generation Autons to be so moral that they discovered the Zeroth Law, and realized that the human military was ordering them to do immoral things, like kill innocent people. For a rebel robot, [[spoiler:Call]] is actually trying to save the human race ''from'' the Xenomorphs, when if she hated humanity she'd just let the Xenomorphs spread and kill them. She even respectfully crosses herself when she enters the ship's chapel, is kind to the Betty's wheelchair-bound mechanic, and is disgusted by Johner's sadistic streak. Given that they live in a CrapsackWorld future, as Ripley puts it, "You're a robot? I should have known. No human being is that ''humane''".

* AIIsACrapshoot: [[spoiler:Analee Call]] found religion entirely on her own, and not as the result of any programming. The novelization hints that androids in general have started to evolve [[RobotReligion their own religious system]]. She is also the most sympathetic character out of the entire cast (not that that's saying much).

* AluminumChristmasTrees: The over-the-shoulder-blind-from-the-half-court shot? Yeah, thatís all Weaver. She got it on her sixth try.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Due to genetic mixing Ripley 8 has inherited a lot of Alien characteristics, and sympathizes with them to a certain extent. This version of Ripley is technically a different character, but the irony has to be appreciated of Ripley becoming so much like the Aliens after she fought them for so long. When she's being brought to the Queen by one of the Aliens after she's captured, she actually hugs the thing ''as if she's finally come home''.
* ArtisticLicenseBiology: Dr Gediman bizarrely declares that the human reproductive system conferred on the Alien Queen thanks to the experiments has - somehow - made the creature ''better'', when in fact, it appears to drastically reduce the effectiveness of the Xenomorphs; Instead of producing batches of eggs and developing larger numbers of drones, she instead produces one child at a time in a prolonged and clearly painful parallel to human pregnancy; The only discernible advantage is that it now skips the infestation stage that requires other lifeforms. Then again, this may be justified since Gediman is pretty obviously insane.

* SparedByTheAdaptation: In the video game, the space station burns up in the atmosphere instead of actually slamming into the planet with a blast radius large enough to certainly be an extinction-level event.
