Fox settled with van Vogt out of court:

Personally I think there's something to like in all four alien films. I couldn't pick a favourite out of the first two.

Tony - the question of who had the idea first doesn't matter in this case, since O'Bannon wrote the scripts for both Dark Star and Alien.

I don't know Voyage of the Space Beagle. Think I need to read it now while considering if it influenced Alien.

In any case, everything is influence. According to the Hero's Journey, there are only 7 stories in existence.
