I would have enjoyed a bit of comedy, actually.

"How are the colonists?"

"The...? Oh no! I haven't checked! I was really busy putting out the motherfucking fire on deck 12."

Mother has some serious long range scanners. Please wait. Collating more data on a random unexplored planet than we actually have for the explored planet we're headed for.

Though making a totally uninformed decision based on the fact that nobody enjoys stasis is so Alien franchise! I love it!

Oh, okay, but we could have done without the long-winded scene saying it's "good judgement" to go off course to an alien planet in pursuit of a mysterious signal. Because...it isn't. At all. Ever.

"There's smooth water there so I'm going to land this spaceship...um...on it...because...I always land blindly ON FUCKING WATER because I think it's funny. Every one out of 500 landings, the water turns out to be an inch deep! Don't worry."

"The eye of the storm is getting worse"? Was the script a collaborative project for a 3rd grade class?

Alien bugs going into your ear trope alert!

Also, they have super scanners and tons of tech but they don't run any sort of scan on the air/water/etc?

It's the Galaxy Quest air test!

"How do we know the air's breathable?"

*huff, huff* "Seems fine to me."

So is this the same Engineer ship? Or did every Engineer ship just crash on a multitude of random planets?

Love the new alien.

And I'm telling you, the guns are a total nod to Red Dwarf's bazzokoids!

So the alien gestation rate for a large egg laid by a facehugger is about 2-3 days. But for a microscopic egg, it's 5 minutes. Are we to believe that the aliens are devolving, Mr. Scott? Or is it just 2017?

I don't like what Obi Wan has done to Jabba's palace.

No one asks why David is living with 10,000 corpses surrounding his house.
