After her last encounter, Ellen Ripley crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a maximum security prison. When a series of strange and deadly events occur shortly after her arrival, Ripley realizes that she brought along an unwelcome visitor.
This is the only film in the Alien Quadrilogy that does not feature an android character unique to that film. The only android that appears is Bishop (in a severely damaged state), and he had previously appeared in Aliens (1986) prior to this.
Stasis interrupted. Fire in cryogenic compartment. Repeat, fire in cryogenic compartment. All personnel report to emergency escape vehicle launch pod. Deep-space flight will commence in T-minus twenty seconds.
The syringe used on Ripley by the doctor (Charles Dance) is the modern-day Rocket brand from London, clearly shown on the close-up with the Rocket logo and OF LONDON mark.
The 20th Century Fox fanfare that plays during the opening studio logo segues ominously into the score of the film.
