Re: Why do the aliens want Ripley?
Eeeerr, it was because Bourke believed Ripley & asked the Station to investigate a Grid-ref. It's there in the film.
One would assume that the person or persons that led the Nostromo to invest' LV426 in the first palce told no-one and were dead or retired before they could send a second team there!.
..oh, and the "Alien-Host" Space ship's warning message battery wore out before the colonists got there!..(or the Robot turned it off on Co' orders when the Nost' left!)
So Ripley was the Catalyst but it was fate, not the Aliens lust for revenge, that brought them in contact withthe Colony! (She only wasted ONE Alien in the 1st film!)
