Plot: Humans will easily travel between stars in the future, and "Nostromo" is only one of the numerous commercial space transport ships operating. After completing its mission and returning to Earth with a cargo of space ore, it unexpectedly received a series of peculiar distress signals. The crew came to a distant, strange planet and found that the occupants had perished and become fossils. In fact, the signal was a warning, not a distress signal. The squad must fight with alien parasites for their lives!

Plot: Ripley became aware that she had fallen asleep for fifty-seven years when she opened her eyes. Humans have moved to the alien world in the meantime. Ripley informs the authorities about the extraterrestrial as soon as she finds out, but she is believed to be either crazy or a liar. Ripley decided to stay out of any involvement with aliens after realizing that the authorities were not paying attention to her. As predicted, the colonists on the alien's planet abruptly lost communication with Earth. At that point, the authorities became aware of Ripley's story and decided to dispatch the troops to save her.
