      After you've been face-raped by a mysterious creature and it dies, assume everything is okay now and everyone can go on with their normal lives.

        Whenever an alien egg opens up, stick your head face first into the sucker. You'll be OK. Not.

                    It's safe to assume that the alien is not a zombie.

                      Whenever you call your cat and it hisses, never assume that its because a killer alien is standing right behind you.

                          A spaceship's landing gear contains vital components of the engine and life support system. So be careful where you land.

                            When a teammate has something mysterious stuck to his face, break all standard quarantine procedures, hell, violate every basic principle of spacecraft safety, especially when you're senior officer or scientist: it can't be a dangerous creature.

                              When an unknown and potentially dangerous life form has emerged from your dying friend, best thing to do is stare in amazement as it runs off into the vast complex of your spaceship. As opposed to, say, killing it.

                                  When searching for a monster that's trying to kill you all, split up the group. That way you can always cover more terrain.

                                    An essential part of any space ship's equipment is one of those little bird things with fluid in them that rock back and forth so they look like they are pecking up food.

                                            When a single alien is on the loose in the vast complex of a spacecraft, the best thing to do is find it via splitting up into groups...rather than just rendezvousing with a military craft, make it to the escape craft together, and quarantine the ship. You know, the first thing that should have been done.

                                              There are two types of women in spaceships: emotionally fragile and heroes that no one will listen to.

                                                  When trying to avoid detection by a hostile, stalking alien, make LOTs of clanging and cluttering and otherwise compromising sounds when sobbing the hell out of yourself.

In fact never discuss the latter nor show any interest in their biology, tech or anything. Don't even take a single photo of the fucker.
