Aliens

Warrant Officer Ripley, the sole survivor of the star freighter Nostromo, is picked up floating in deep space in a hyper-sleep capsule. She is taken to Gateway Station, a giant space station complex floating high above the Earth – here she is interrogated by a hostile committee of top Company Administrators. Her account of the alien creature which gestates inside a living human host is received with disbelief, and the committee ignores Ripley’s frantic warning of an alien space ship containing thousands of unhatched alien eggs.

Ripley is horrified to learn that the remote planet on which the crew of the Nostromo encountered the deadly extraterrestrial is only inhabited by the Company’s space engineers and their families, who have set both colony base and a mighty Atmosphere Processor to produce a breathable atmosphere within the base.

When all contact is lost with the colony, Ripley reluctantly agrees to accompany the elite squad of Space Marines to the distant planet. On arrival they find an eerie, deserted base bearing signs of a savage struggle. Then, as night falls, the Aliens come out…
