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 spear gun Ripley used at the end of Alien (1979) is briefly visible in the opening scenes, while the escape pod door is being cut open - still stuck at the bottom of the escape pod door, where the gun jammed 57 years earlier.
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
(at around 54 mins) The monitors for each of the marines' head-mounted cameras are identified by each marine's last name and first initial, located in lower right-hand corner of the monitor (e.g., Hicks D., Apone A., Hudson W., etc.). This is true for Vasquez' monitor (Vasquez J.), with one exception. While in the processing station and after Apone says, "Uh, roger. That's a two-one-six.", her monitor reads "Vasquez.".
The ALIENS title forms slowly during the opening credits. The full title isn't seen until the opening credits are finished, and the "I" illuminates brightly.
