This did not make any sense the last time it was talked about here and it still doesn't.
The original movie established that the mothership contained the entirety of the aliens' population and they just roved around using up planets successively.

A whole-new alien race, perhaps? Gee, what are the odds?
Sucks to be Earth!

You know, while the elements have all been used before, I don't think I've actually encountered this particular combination of them. Where have you heard this story before, if I may ask?

Well, I love that concept whether it's dinosaurs or zombies on the lose, so give it to me! It's all about atmosphere, this thing.

Except for the hunting part, it's pretty much Jurassic Park. But with zombies instead of dinosaurs.

Hmmm...seen the original a few dozen times, but not sure I remember this...when do they say that?

It's in the scene where the alien strangles Dr. Okun and a moment later the President can see into its mind during a sort of mental link between them.

EDIT: I've forgotten what a cool movie this is. Derivative as you can get, but a sure-fire crowd-pleaser all the same.

I'm pretty sure the movie never stated that every single one of it's species is involved in the attacks on Earth. Different ships can move to different planets, increasing the chance of finding worlds with sufficient resources. Just like there is never just one swarm of locusts.

The President's comments are that it's the whole alien population. It would be most likely that the President would have said the alien species roams space in several different ships IF that had been the case in the first place. Additionally, no one throughout the entire movie said they feared a future attack, the specter of which obviously would have been present IF there were still more out there.

However, I think that your comment is a valid possible interpretation of the line the President spoke. In fact, I myself theorized that that very same explanation could be used as a rationalization for a sequel the last time it was brought up here. It's just that a lot of people who were paying attention to the dialogue could justifiably call BS on twisting words this way. Myself, I wouldn't mind if they did make a sequel using that explanation. Sci-Fi fans allow a lot worse than this on a regular basis.

The ending always bothered me. The alien ships were down, but there were still millions if not billions of aliens roaming the planet. They were at best in the middle of a global war as the credits appeared on screen.

Actually, what you are describing wouldn't be a bad jumping-off point for the sequel. Good call.
It could pick up where the first one left off, showing all the grueling hand-to-hand combat that would most certainly be happening in places with less weaponry.
Maybe the aliens could win in the short term and rebuild their ships, while the humans went "underground" to eventually mount their counter-offensive.
But then it sort of starts to tread on "Battlefield Earth" territory. Yikes! big grin

Hmmm, an appropriate follow-up to his "outer...space" bit in ILD?

Sigh. Does anyone else remember when STAR WARS was simply a stand-alone, fun, exhilarating & jokey Saturday matinee tribute with no back story "universe"?

What always drove me nuts about Independence Day, even as a young kid, was the fact that these aliens never sent down ground troops to mop up after destroying cities. This is standard operating procedure and its omission only shows how two-dimensionally everyone was thinking while making the movie. It would not only have been realistic, but would have added a lot to the film.

Then again, it's a piece of shit anyway.
