Then in this, the engineer dies somewhere else. Pretty major inconsistency.
It obviously wasn't the same engineer. Remember, at the end of the movie they left in another alien ship that appeared to be identical to the others, on a journey to find other engineers. And the chest burster hasn't yet evolved into the one the Nostromo crew encounters later, either.
I'm not mean; I just don't like you.
