* ContinuitySnarl: The doctor from the university said that the infected astronaut's half-human children had defective immune systems due to being hybrids. They were also implied to be sterile (the female one certainly seemed to be). This means the premise of the original movie ''was never possible in the first place''.

Although then again the way the scientists in the lab produced their embryos and the natural conception by Ross may be the devil in the details here.

* HordeOfAlienLocusts: A disgraced former scientist speculates that the aliens operate like this, having wiped out all native life and destroyed the ecosystem on mars billions of years ago and are now trying to do the same to Earth.

* FollowTheLeader: While not a full-on ''Alien'' rip-off, Creator/HRGiger complained that there were too many similarities, starting with his involvement in designing the creature (he even suggested changing the ending, which he felt as similar to both ''Alien 3'' and ''{{Terminator}} 2'').

* NeglectfulPrecursors: It's not clear what the aliens wanted humans to do with their DNA, but either way giving it (and instructions on how to combine it with ours) was at best poorly thought out, if not downright malicious.

* NeglectfulPrecursors: It's not clear what the aliens wanted humans to do with their DNA, but either way giving it (and instructions on how to combine it with ours) was at best poorly thought out, if not downright malicious. The film seems to indicate that it was actually a malicious plan (one of the characters speculates that Sil is an ideal biological weapon if some alien race decided that humanity was a weed in need of plucking), while the role-playing game supplement suggests the aliens thought it was really interesting (and more than a little amusing) watching humans blunder around with biotech beyond their understanding and seeing how we responded to it.

* InescapableHorror: At the very end, after Sil is destroyed we see a rat chewing on a piece of her body. The rat mutates, indicating that it will become another Sil. Interestingly, also a case of a SequelHook that went entirely unused ([[WhatHappenedToTheMouse this particular rat is never mentioned in any of the following films).

* GangstaStyle: For some reason Preston holds his gun sideways when he arrests Patrick, despite being both a supposed counter-terrorism expert with firearms training and aware that his target is a highly dangerous alien masquarading as a human.

* SexyByProxy: The two alien-human hybrids are mind-linked, and also want to do each other to create purer offspring than they could with human mates. There are several times when Patrick is having sex somewhere else, and Eve goes into heat and apparently orgasms at the same time.
