Yet another 80s Scifi search! But as it happens, I remember the whole movie...

... possibly 70s even, but I would have watched it in the 80s. Starts with a ship docking with a station having obtained an "egg" of sorts, which is sold and bought in a market-style place on the station.
Eventually we leave on a different ship, with the "egg" on board. Naturally the egg starts to grow into a alien creature, albeit a stationary one (mit tenticles). The first scene is set in a galley or kitcheny area with the creature on the right, usually shot from Predator-cam-angle, and the first human to find it, who attacks and gets killed by the creature.
One by one humans are killed and I believe the spaceship ends up in technical difficulties. Eventually the creature learns to communicate with the onboard computer, comes across a moral-code of sorts (could be the bible, or something like the bible).
Eventually the creature and humans communicate via the computer terminal, and it becomes clear the alien only killed in self-defense as it was being attacked by the humans.
(the usual: what is THAT?! I don't know, but kill it!).
The 2 surviving humans (male and female afaik) and creature learn to cooperate, repair the ship, even play chess from memory.
It stood out to me as it had the rare plot of a friendly alien.
Watched it in Scandinavia, but thought it was in English
