- The crew listens to the eerie signal from the planetoid.
- An additional discussion between Parker and Ripley over the comm, concerning the progress on the Nostromo's engines.
- A scene where a furious Lambert hits Ripley for her earlier refusal to let her team back aboard the Nostromo.
- An additional conversation between Lambert and Ash, where Lambert notices a dark patch over Kane's lungs on the scanner, foreshadowing Kane's fate.
- A discussion among the crew, immediately following Kane's death, on how to proceed further.
- Alternative death scene for Brett: Ripley and Parker witness an alive Brett being lifted from the ground.
- Ripley and Lambert discuss whether Ash has sex or not.
- An unfinished scene where Parker spots the alien next to an airlock door. He asks Ripley and Lambert over the comm to open the airlock and flush the alien into space. However, the alien is warned by a siren and escapes, but not before it gets injured by a door and its blood creates a small hole, causing a short decompression.
- Ripley finds Dallas and Brett cocooned. Brett is dead and covered in maggots; Dallas is alive and begs Ripley to kill him. She does so with a flame thrower. The mercy-killing scene would eventually be recycled and used in Alien: Resurrection (1997) when an alien/human-hybrid clone of Ripley begs the real Ripley to kill her, to which she does so with a flame-thrower.
