* Creator/AlanDeanFoster wanted Newt to survive in the novelization of Film/{{Alien3}}.He would have said her cryotube was damaged but she would live if they could get it repaired and this would give Ripley more motivation to survive. The [[ExecutiveMeddling producers said he couldn't alter the story]] which was the reason he refused to write the novel for ''Film/AlienResurrection''.

''WebComic/SailorMoonCosmosArc'' makes it very clear that they were indeed revived, and now live in the restored Moon Palace.
