Another interesting similarity exists between Invasion and Alien. In Invasion, there is a barbecue at Miles' home. In the famous greenhouse scene, two giant seed pods are discovered that explode open with a milky fluid bubbling out. The pods reveal replicas, almost completing the reproductive process. In Alien, the crew is celebrating their liftoff from the planet with a meal. The crewmember who has become the host to the alien is enjoying a hearty meal when his abdomen explodes and the alien is 'born' to the horror of Ripley, Dallas and the other crew members.
Both movies describe the heroic struggle of one determined individual to survive and to warn mankind of the danger. In Invasion, that hero is the town doctor. In Alien, the hero is Ripley, a pilot who must do what she can to save her crew and her craft from the invaders.

In Alien, the audience is surprised when a woman, Ripley, becomes the hero of the story. The audience is also surprised when the science officer, Ash, is revealed to be an android -- and the inference is drawn that the conglomerate that owns the vessel knew it was going to put the crew in harms way and had added Ash at the last minute to ensure the alien would be returned through quarantine and delivered to the company to investigate and exploit.
