Ellen Ripley is rescued by a deep salvage team after being in 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?

Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
Portable satellite phone existed in the 20th century which could call satellites in orbit. Were the story set in a timeline respective to our own, this would make the need to use the colony's transmitter to contact the Sulaco rather unnecessary, but James Cameron set the story within the fictional universe established by Alien (1979), which had not depicted such satellite phones as being commonplace.
As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
A scene where the colonists receive company orders telling them to explore the derelict spacecraft. Newt's family drives to the site and during the trip Newt and her brother Timothy are arguing about a game of hide and seek that they play in the colony's air duct system. Timothy complains that Newt has the unfair advantage of being able to hide in the small places that the rest of the players can't get to. Following this, they arrive at the derelict ship and the mother and father go in; later the mother returns dragging the father who now has a facehugger clamped on his face.
