The Economics of Alien and Nostromo

Reply Sun 12 Feb, 2017 06:08 pm
According to the accountants at the beginning of Aliens (1986), the starfreighter was valued at @$42 million, not including the actual mining cargo.

What do you think the actual sticker price of said starship? It certainly is lacking in luxuries but I figure that even a seagoing commercial freighter this size would be worth far more than that. This ship probably travels as close to light speed as possible.

The sleeper pods used by the crew probably are worth $42 million each if they existed in the real world.

The ship (as indicated in the first movie) held 20 million tons of nonspecified mineral ore. Any fiscal speculation there?
