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 body mounts for Vasquez's and Drake's smart guns are taken from Steadicam gear.
Salvage Team Leader:
Bio-readouts are all in the green, looks like she's alive. Well, there goes our salvage, guys.
When Apone tells the Marines to hand in their magazines, Vasquez hides a pair of what look like batteries with 1/4 inch phone jacks and gives one to Drake - these are ostensibly the battery packs for the smart guns they are carrying, which supposedly fire some kind of plasma projectile at their target. But moments after Vasquez says "Let's Rock!"and begins firing, you can see a conventional ammunition belt hanging from the smart gun (which is actually a heavily disguised MG42 machine gun).
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.
