In both Alien and Aliens, the name of the ships, Nostromo and Sulaco, come from Conrad's novels. Is there some connection?

Ridley Scott may be the key. He directed The Duellists, also based on a Conrad book, The Duel

We live, as we dream -- alone. -Joseph Conrad", appears above the title of the movie in the final script for the movie "Alien"

just googled this stuff....maybe it's just Scott's homage to a favorite author...
