Enjoyed it and definitely left for a spin off.

Is there any reason for the name drop for "Aliens" just before the drop or just paying homage the writers fav film?

The screen showing the assault team's names was full of references, not just to Aliens:

Too late, someone on another forum had already beaten you to the punch and wrote them all down.

I’ll soldier on the without looking for 24 hours then I’ll search for the answers - so far pick out 6 films but struggling now - I sooo want “Rico J” to be Judge Rico 😁 when it’s confirmed.

Surely it'll be this guy - "I'm from Buenos Aires, and I say kill 'em all!"

It was, but I can't take credit for it — I naffed that image from John Freeman's FB feed.

Think I'm up to ten. A couple of the others ring a bell but otherwise I'm stumped.  Fun.

I'm pretty sure the top left one is a reference to the character Betty Draper from the popular series Madmen.  Below her is Star Wars' own Admiral Ackbar, whom many rappers would tell you is the original G. Then there's Dennis Quaid, who was in sci-fi classics such as Enemy Mine and Inner Space, followed by everyone's favourite Avenger, Da Bowman. At the bottom is the ambiguously gendered Commander Shepherd from Mass Effect. At the top of the next column is a reference to the Actor who played Geordie Laforge, none other than levAr Burton.

That's as far as I've got.
You may quote me on that.

Or possibly Doug Quaid, Arnie's character in Total Recall.

Also Colin Farrell's character in Total Recall.

Haven't seen this episode but Burton and Draper are Amos and Bobbie I'm guessing?

I see Star Wars, Total Recall, Aliens, Last Starfighter, Terminator, Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica, Dune, Tron, Star Trek, 2001, possibly Spaceballs referenced here and there's loads of others I haven't got. I think there's also a Mass Effect reference, which means there could also be a Halo one...
