** It's also possible that [[spoiler: David implanted Lope when he was dressing the burn on his cheek, using spores or something. He did have a couple of embryos on his person, after all. There was no need for the scene of "Walter" dressing his wound otherwise; the film didn't really need three scenes of a man getting a bandage applied to his face.]] He could've indeed escaped the facehugger only to be implanted anyway.

** Not necessarily so much that - [[spoiler:Given I don't know how Weyland-Yutani can learn David is the creator of the Xenomorph, but FridgeBrilliance ''definitely'' comes into play with the fact that they're a creature specifically designed to destroy humankind, and we seemingly readily embrace that as something to exploit and use]].

to:

* Given that [[spoiler: David created the Xenomorphs]], it makes a lot more sense that Weyland-Yutani is so obsessed with acquiring the Xenomorphs for themselves in the subsequent films, since [[spoiler: they were technically created by a product of the company's own technology]].

** It's highly unlikely that the parasite normally implants the "embryo" or viral agent immediately upon attachment, however, the above is correct in that the facehugger will remain attached to ensure that the implant is secure and starts developing in the chest cavity. Basically sources say that while a facehugger stays attached to a host for up to 26 hours, implantation occurs just below half that time as the Weyland-Yutani report states that they will remain attached post implantation for up to 16 hours. Still, the incident is hard to reconcile as it is absurdly fast and makes the creature's abilty to keep a host alive mostly redundant if it can just infect instantly, another point to consider is that these are not the Xenomorph types we know, they are David's version.

*** [[spoiler:This also explains his unusual incorrect sourcing of the Ozymandias quote; at this point, David simply ''doesn't care'', other than how the meaning of it all relates to ''him'']].

* The film seems to make a point about addressing the complaints about the previous film: the crew does it's best to keep track of each other at all times and never deliberately abandons anyone, they arm themselves with actual guns, they're actually nice to the android, unwise decisions are lampshaded and protested instead of blindly followed, there's an attempt to actually help the infested crew members instead while also attempting to maintain quarantine, the black goo's effects are explained, [[spoiler:Shaw's bad decisions get her killed]], and they even try and check the local environment to see what it's like ''before'' venturing outside the ship. Mistakes are still made, but at least it seems like the behaviour of people who might actually get the job to go to other worlds.
