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.
(at around 26 mins) After Spunkmeyer loads the missile, he calls "Clear behind!" and walks the power loader backward. A thick cable can be seen attached to the loader's left foot. (The loaders are supposed to be free-standing.)
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.
Before Ripley leaves the dropship to rescue Newt, there is some additional dialogue in which she turns to Hicks to say goodbye, and they tell each other their first names (Ellen Ripley and Dwayne Hicks).
