Concept

Concept artists Bill Badalato, Nigel Phelps and Sylvain Despretz designed 20-30 different designs for the Auriga including designs for the Betty.

Production

VFI Effects 3D, LA created almost all CGI for the spacecrafts including the Auriga, the Betty and the Lifeboats using matte paintings and green screens. These were then filmed with the miniatures at 60 frames a second and when slowed in post production produced a feel of zero gravity. All shots of the Lifeboats from outside were CGI, including the Alien entering and subsequent death of personnel, launch and explosion. A small part was constructed as the crew entered and as a grenade dropped in, rolled by Perez.

Timeline

The film Alien Resurrection is set after the film Alien 3, some 200 years after Ellen Ripley dies at the Class C Work Correctional Unit on Fiorina 'Fury' 161.
