Alien Easter Egg - Conrad Fan?

"Nostromo" is the title of a Joseph Conrad book. The shuttle that Ripley escapes on is called the "Narcissus", a reference to another Conrad book. Also worth a note - In Aliens, the ship "Sulaco" is the name of a town in "Nostromo"

Ridley Scott, the director of Alien, had just directed "The Duellists" before starting work on Alien. The film was based on Conrad's story "The Duel"
