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?
Only acting role for Carrie Henn. She later became a teacher.
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
In the original Alien film, LV-426 is adjacent to a huge planet with Saturn like rings. Such is its size, it can even be viewed from the surface (i.e. when the Nostromo crew investigate the alien ship). In Aliens, however, it is not visible when the sulaco enters orbit - it has completely vanished.
As the final credits fade, there is the sound of a facehugger scurrying across from left to right.
