Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being hypersleep for 57 years. The moon that the Nostromo visited has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, colonial marines have impressive firepower, but will that be enough?
The rhyme that Hudson mutters as he's searching for the colonists is from the AC/DC song "Shake a Leg": "Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen..."
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
(at around 2h 10 mins) At the end of the film as Ripley is closing the sleep chamber for Bishop, you can clearly see his IV pack has an expiration date of 08/87. However, Aliens takes place in 2179, so the expiry date could be 07/2187.
As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
