I think there's an alternative ending to Resurrection where Ripley and the rest of the survivors land on Earth and it's a wasteland.
Paris, yes. Not necessarily the whole planet (which I believe is described as "beautiful" in a line that actually appears in the film). And isn't Paris' condition explainable by the simple fact that the Auriga
crashed into it?
No, as Saul
said the line was "Earth. Man, what a shithole."
Unless Paris was relocated to South Africa, that's not where the Auriga crashed. Speaking of which, I think the fact that they were perfectly okay with vaporizing most of the southern part of Africa (not to mention the worldwide after-effects of that massive explosion) doesn't bode well for there being a lot of people alive on Earth.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
