a) Fleshed out the section "Transition to being a spacecraft designer" on  Giger's derelict exterior with Giger quote from Cinefex and Giger's Alien, and added section "Battle between O'Bannon and Scott over derelict". Was there more than one moment of heavy discussion between the two or was it just one event.
b) Since Strangeshapes added an essay summarizing discussions about the Alien in a box shape to his site and was able to mention my page about the whole thing at the bottom, and mentioned in the essay what I had stated as well about how I thought the Fifield scene was inspired by the unused organic box idea from Alien, I thought that I had better set out my thoughts on the whole matter: Fifield found rolled up
c) Wrote the synopsis for The final mutant fifield
d) Added statement by comic book artist Walter Simonson about what he imagined was behind the unfolding organic alien box shape effect in Organic Box Like Thing
