Re: An alternate viewpoint

That was sort of my take on it. At the end we can see that Chris was clearly the ships captain or engineer (the brains of the operation, at any rate). It's also mentioned early on that this was a ship of worker types who wouldn't have a lot of smarts anyway. For all we know, Chris was the last member of the command staff still alive, he was probably looking for some way to fix/help the situation WITHOUT needing a lot of other people.

> The director confirmed (OOC, unfortunately), that the aliens were at least somewhat eusocial and that Christopher was a member of their leadership caste; with the rest gone they were rudderless at best.

Thanks, good to know.

Though this reminds me that I forgot to mention the one scene where the rudderless aliens do resort to mob violence. Naturally, it's to tear apart the mercenary threatening Whitey Wikus.

I wish the movie didn't challenge its own backstory for Whitey's convenience. :-(

If I recall correctly the number of figures in the scene consisted of Wiktor on the ground, the Henchman and three or four aliens - which does not a mob make.

IIRC, they actually did mention this, at least, in the version I was watching, Right about the point of time when they were explaining the past history, when they first encountered the Prawns.

so, yeah...
