** Weyland-Yutani, who contribute just as much to the series' mythology than the Xenomorph (if not more), were written out of Cameron's original treatment. A throwaway line would've revealed they were bought out and shut down. Who can imagine how the franchise would have evolved without the cartoonishly evil Company and its numerous ill-advised attempts to capture a Xenomorph?

* FakeAmerican: Played with. Newt is meant to be American and Carrie Henn is likewise American. However he family had lived in England for a while and she had picked up a hybrid between the two accents - which is audible in a few scenes.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: A minor case. Being set in the future, the date of the film production can be told by the presence of some 80sHair and Hudson making a joke about smoking or not smoking seats.

* TroubledProduction: Creator/JamesCameron didn't get along with the English film crew at all, who thought he was a poor substitute for Creator/RidleyScott and disliked him for the simple fact that he was American [actually Canadian] and not British (ironically, Scott himself would have similar problems when he didn't mesh with the American crew of 1982's ''Film/BladeRunner''). The crew was openly hostile to both Cameron and his then wife producer Gale Anne Hurd, whom they openly mocked by claiming she wasn't the real producer and only got the credit because she was married to Cameron. Creator/BillPaxton later said that British film crew drove Cameron nuts with their "indentured" work ethics, stopping filming just so they could have tea and the like; Michael Biehn made fun of the British crew in the audio commentary by saying that they "weren't used to working" (a remark he threw in when Paxton was talking about the "indentured" work ethics). Things eventually hit their breaking point when Cameron clashed with an uncooperative cameraman who refused to light the Alien nest the way Cameron wanted (Cameron wanted dark lighting to create an eerie atmosphere while the cameraman kept going with bright lighting to show off the intricacies of the set) and finally Cameron, fed up with the bad attitudes of his crew, yelled at the guy "YOU'RE FIRED!" and threw him off the set, which led to the crew walking out, requiring Gale Anne Hurd to coax them back once they had all cooled down. The film went over-schedule and over-budget, and Music/JamesHorner had barely any time to throw his (very memorable) music score together - to the point that he swore to never work with Cameron again. He recanted later.
