Ripley 8 & Dr. Wren

I found these two sections to be quite similar, it is also interesting to note that both Daniels and Ripley are capable women, having their valid concerns dismissed by men in power using terminology they can associate with. Ripley later pilots the Betty because both Johner and Viress cannot, and Daniels later defeats the Xenomorph on the lander using her climbing skills.
