- Director Roger Christian was quoted saying: "[It's] Quite scary. We don't have a creature. Our alien entity, which it is, is born on board. This woman gets pregnant and gives birth in a few days. It's one of those weird things that happens very fast. The thing that's on board imitates one of the crew members and takes him over...Our familiar character becomes the monster."
