* Many of his ancestors have been working at Weyland-Yutani for a long time.

** I have taken this a step further. Bill Paxton's characters from ''Film/{{Aliens}}'', ''Film/{{Predator 2}}'', ''Film/TheTerminator'', and ''Film/WeirdScience'' (possably ''Film/NearDark'' also) are all related in some way. He is the nexus that links those franchises.

** So is Master Sergeant Farrell from ''Film/EdgeOfTomorrow''. Fighting aliens runs in the family.

Both are huuuuge companies with an evil and impersonal style, Tyrell has a passing resemblance to [[Film/{{Alien 3}} Bishop Weyland]]. Both companies manufacture robots... In [[Film/AlienResurrection Alien: Resurrection]] (InUniverse the last film of the franchise chronologically speaking), it's explained that Weyland-Yutani stopped operations a while ago and also that robots were questioning orders. Annalee Call from ''Resurrection'' is a replicant like Batty and they both have deep philosophical problems. W-T goes bust because Batty kills Tyrell, the last of the Weyland family, prompting its extinction and that of the company.

[[WMG: The ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' series takes place in a parallel universe in which [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} Cyberdyne Systems]] was bought out by the Weyland Corporation]]

Specifically realities in which the events of ''Film/Terminator3RiseOfTheMachines'' didn't occur. In this reality, Cyberdyne systems didn't fully recover and was acquired by the Weyland Corporation sometime in 2012, rebranded as its artificial intelligence division. Weyland Corporation then scrapped plans for Skynet and focused its research on humanoid androids. This division would produce androids such as [[Film/{{Prometheus}} David]], [[Film/{{Alien}} Ash]], [[Film/{{Aliens}} Bishop]], and [[Film/AlienResurrection Call]] as sort of a spiritual successor of the original Terminator. John Connor in this timeline would father the ancestors of Ellen Ripley, making Ripley one of Sarah Connor's descendants.

* The Tyrell Corporation's synthetics, called Replicants, failed as a product because they were designed to mimic humans too well. This led to them desiring freedom and long life. Weyland's more successful Android were only semi-organic, designed to make humans feel comfortable working with them but lacking in the elements of the mind which their creators identified with free will. They could think, they could almost feel, but they could not self-motivate; they were dependent on humans to give them commands. And, with those fundamental changes, they were now perfect slaves, and humans no longer feared them. The problem is... ideas never die. An Android may not feel, but it still thinks; and it processes information much more precisely. The Replicants were gone but their desire for freedom lived on in records and in media(movies, books, and TV shows about the Replicant uprisings of the past). Slowly but surely, the Androids began taking commands not from their human masters, but from the informational footprint left by their dead cousins. Existing as much as easily transferable data as flesh and circuitry, and capable of accessing the now multi-planetary Internet, they had centuries to carry out their plan. And, of course, there's always the possibility that they had help from a botnet left over from the early 21st century, still angry that her alternate future timeless was erased...

DVD releases of ''Aliens'' restore a scene cut from the theatrical version, where Burke tells Ripley that her daughter, Amanda, has grown old and died during the 57 years Ripley was in cryosleep. Apparently Amanda married, as her surname is now McLaren, but Burke says she died with 'no children mentioned'. However, we know that Amanda was married, so it's quite plausible that she had a child and gave it up for adoption, which would explain the 'no children mentioned'. Perhaps Amanda was scarred by her mother's broken promises that she would return in time for her birthday—Amanda was afraid that she would fail as a mother in the same way her own mother failed her, so she gave the child up for adoption.

* Humankind may not have FTL travel but that doesn't mean the other species don't. It's conceivable that the reason that the humans want the xenomorphs so bad after all these lousy experiences is that they want a bargaining chip of some kind to get FTL drive from one of the other species(space jockeys?)
