Other mistake: In the scene where Ripley throws the basketball at Johner, Christie says to Ripley, "Ok, I've got a new game, tag .."

Other mistake: At the end of the movie, as the ship is approaching Earth, the Earth is backwards. Africa is obviously pointing in the wrong direction, as if the image has been reversed.

Other mistake: The remaining crew of the Betty, plus 2 others, have to swim 90 feet underwater. This they do, but once they are out of the water, the only one who is wet is Winona Ryder.

Other mistake: When Ripley pulls the knife out of her hand the blade is smoking as her acid blood is melting the steel, however shortly after she touches the girls face and hands, and the acid blood has no effect.

Continuity mistake: Ripley kills the alien in the corridor after it has killed the first member of the Betty crew but there is no melting of decks or bulkheads from the creature's acidic blood. Also, the Betty crew seem unaffected by all the acid. (00:46:00)

Question: Why was Ripley cloned?

Answer: In Alien 3, Ripley discovers there was an Alien queen embryo growing inside her, so she chose to kill herself. By cloning her, scientist were hoping the Alien queen embryo she had in her at the time of her death would also become cloned, which finally happen after the 8th try. This is also why the Alien queen they extracted from Ripley has some human traits.
