When the EEV report is being made at the beginning of the film, Ripley is listed as Lieutenant. Yet, Ripley's rank was always a warrant officer, a lower rank than lieutenant (the extended inquest of the Director's Cut makes this clear). While it's true that Burke promised her that she'd be reinstated as a flight officer, since they never returned to Earth after Aliens it is unlikely that this occurred, and certainly not at a higher rank than she was prior to her return to LV-426.

While it is normal to often have a happy story go bad, somehow it just seems out of place here in a way you can't explain in words. Some of the happiness achieved at the end of 'Aliens' is taken away in this third film and it takes forever to get going once the new situation is established. There is minimal action and while the first 'Alien' movie was low on action and made up for it by being and high on tension, this film is just stale. Sigourney Weaver does her best this time around and she is quite good but David Fincher, who did well after this with 'Se7en', 'The Game', and 'Fight Club', seems like the wrong guy to direct a movie like this as his vision is full of potential but low on actual execution as he looks confused at times in the story he is trying to complete. Do yourself a favour and take this one with a grain of salt and put up a road block in lumping it in with 1 & 2, and avoid the fourth film at all costs.
