I love the Ripley character, of course, but why not have a different, even male protagonist, next time?
Because if there's one thing sci-fi films really lack, it's male protagonists.
I agree that it'd be great to have more sci-fi heroines, but I'm not at all sure that insisting that each Alien movie be female-centric is the answer, or even helpful. If an Alien prequel were to center upon a Ripley variant, I could easily see other sci-fi moviemakers avoiding female protagonists for fear of looking like an Alien ripoff.
