After floating in space for 57 years, Lt. Ripley's shuttle is found by a deep space salvage team.
The planet LV-426 has been colonized, but contact is lost. A team of marines & Ripley are dispatched to investigate. They find only one survivor, a nine year old girl named Newt. The rescue team has impressive firepower, but even these battle-hardened marines with all the latest weaponry are no match for the hundreds of aliens that have invaded the colony.
Hudson: Look, I'm telling ya, there's somethin' movin' & it ain't us! Tracker's off scale, man. They're all around us, man. Jesus!
