Tuesday 3rd February
Expanded on "Changes to derelict" which seemed like too much of a blur

Sunday 1st February 2015
Added Rick Deckard, human or replicant?
(Expanding on the Blade Runner section, although it has nothing directly to do with Alien, the film's world comes into contact with the world of ideas that Ridley drew from for Alien in terms of the human Environments. However this is about Ridley's idea about Deckard being a replicant and how he spoke about it publicly at least within two years of the actual movie rather than assumed ten by most people. If I can find something earlier, then I will later include this as well.)
