Important Question...

In the movie Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey, Bill and Ted are murdered by evil robot duplicates sent back in time to prevent the utopia their music will bring about. In the afterlife, they challenge Death to a battle of wits. If they win, Death becomes their servant.

After winning their challenge, B and T ask Death to take them to the greatest scientist in the history of the universe in order to create good robot versions of themselves to fight their doppelgangers.

Death then takes them to Heaven, where after some well-timed Poison lyrics, they are directed to a plaza, where they meet Station, a pair of short hairy aliens. Death comments on B and T's arrogance for believing Earth would have the greatest scientist ever. Oh, Station was playing charades in Heaven. Einstein guessed it right.

Now the question:

Was Station dead? If not, why would they be in Heaven then? And if they were, does that mean that when aliens die, they go to the Judeo-Christian version of Heaven? Since humans were responsible for Original Sin, do aliens get a free pass?

I've got a lot of sugar running through my system right now.
