Ellen Ripley, the only survivor of the space freighter Nostromo has been rescued and revived after drifting for fifty-seven years in stasis. At an interview before a panel of executives from her employer, the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, her testimony regarding the Alien was met with extreme skepticism as no physical evidence of the creature survived the destruction of the Nostromo. Ripley lost her space flight license as a result of her "questionable judgment" and learns that LV-426, the planet where her crew first encountered the Alien eggs, is now home to a terraforming colony.
Some time later, Ripley is visited by Weyland-Yutani representative Carter Burke and Lieutenant Gorman of the Colonial Marines, who inform her that contact has been lost with the colony on LV-426. The company decided to dispatch Burke and a unit of marines to investigate, and offers to restore Ripley's flight status and pick up her contract if she will accompany them as a consultant. Traumatized by her previous encounter with the Alien, Ripley initially refuses to join, but accepts when she realizes that the mission will allow her to face her fears, which had been plaguing her since her first encounter. Aboard the warship Sulaco she is introduced to the Colonial Marines, as well as the android Bishop, toward whom Ripley was initially hostile due to her previous experience with the android Dr Ash aboard the Nostromo.
The heavily-armed expedition descended to the surface of LV-426 via dropship, where they found the colony seemingly abandoned. Two living Alien facehuggers were found in containment tanks in the medical lab, and the only colonist found was a traumatized young girl nicknamed Newt. The marines determine that the colonists are clustered in the nuclear-powered atmosphere processing station. Leaving android Bishop behind in the MedLab to continue his research of the facehuggers, Ripley, Burke and the Colonial Marines take the APC to investigate the atmosphere processing station. Ripley, Burke and Gorman remain within the APC, while Sergeant Apone leads the marines deep into the atmosphere processing station. There they find a large Alien nest filled with the cocooned colonists, then suddenly the Aliens reveal themselves and attack...
*The aliens can walk through cocoon walls!* However, it costs double the usual number of AP's. Also, aliens cannot walk through doors.
At least 3 of the Colonial Marines must make it back to the APC.
The Aliens must kill the Colonial Marines
