When an industrial spy steals a Xenomorph egg, former Colonial Marine Zula Hendricks must prevent an alien from killing everyone on an isolated colony planet. Venture, a direct rival to the Weyland-Yutani corporation, will accept any risk to crush the competition. Thus, when a corporate spy "acquires" a bizarre, leathery egg from a hijacked vessel, she takes it directly to the Venture testing facility on Jericho 3. Though unaware of the danger it poses, the scientists there recognize their prize's immeasurable value. Early tests reveal little, however, and they come to an inevitable conclusion. They need a human test subject... ENTER ZULA HENDRICKS A member of the Jericho 3 security staff, Colonial Marines veteran Zula Hendricks has been tasked with training personnel to deal with anything the treacherous planet can throw their way. Yet nothing can prepare them for the horror that appears--a creature more hideous than any Zula has encountered before. Unless stopped, it will kill every human being on the planet.

From birth, Amanda Ripley’s life is riddled with hardship. Her parents live on the edge of poverty, so her mother—Ellen Ripley—seeks off-world contracts that lead to a position aboard the commercial hauler Nostromo. Then when the deep-space vessel disappears, Amanda passes into adulthood focused on discovering one thing. WHAT HAPPENED TO ELLEN RIPLEY? Amanda’s quest pulls her into the underbelly of society, where few can be trusted. On Luna she meets someone who seems the exception—Private Zula Hendricks of the Colonial Marines—but their relationship is short-lived. Just as Amanda appears to hit rock bottom... a lead appears. To follow it, she must travel to the remote Sevastopol Station. There she hopes to find the answers she seeks. But the station is in ruins, and death stalks the corridors in the form of a deadly alien the likes of which she never could have imagined.

The first-draft Alien screenplay by William Gibson, the founder of cyberpunk, turned into a novel by Pat Cadigan, the Hugo Award-Winning "Queen of Cyberpunk." William Gibson's never-before-adapted screenplay for the direct sequel to Aliens, revealing the fates of Ripley, Newt, the synthetic Bishop, and Corporal Hicks. When the Colonial Marines vessel Sulaco docks with space station and military installation Anchorpoint, a new form of Xenomorph appears. Written by Hugo Award-winning novelist and "Queen of Cyberpunk" Pat Cadigan, based on Gibson's never-produced first draft. The Sulaco-on its return journey from LV-426-enters a sector controlled by the "Union of Progressive Peoples," a nation-state engaged in an ongoing cold war and arms race. U.P.P. personnel board the Sulaco and find hypersleep tubes with Ripley, Newt, and an injured Hicks. A Facehugger attacks the lead commando, and the others narrowly escape, taking what remains of Bishop with them. The Sulaco continues to Anchorpoint, a space station and military installation the size of a small moon, where it falls under control of the military's Weapons Division. Boarding the Sulaco, a team of Colonial Marines and scientists is assaulted by a pair of Xenomorph drones. In the fight Ripley's cryotube is badly damaged. It's taken aboard Anchorpoint, where Ripley is kept comatose. Newt and an injured Corporal Hicks are awakened, and Newt is sent to Gateway Station on the way to Earth. The U.P.P. sends Bishop to Anchorpoint, where Hicks begins to hear rumors of experimentation-the cloning and genetic modification of Xenomorphs. The kind of experimentation that could yield a monstrous hybrid, and perhaps even a Queen. ALIEN 3 TM & (c) Twentieth Century Films. All rights reserved.

Prototype: Design and Craft in the 21st Century is an edited collection of 13 essays by a diverse, cross-disciplinary body of international scholars and practitioners, which for the first time, brings together critical and speculative thinking on the role the prototype can, and should, play within design, craft and beyond. The range of authors and pioneers is carefully selected and purposefully diverse so as to reflect, extend and lead current debates on the subject. This book offers an alternative way to question design and craft. It also seeks to raise awareness and understanding of design and craft within disciplines where they are not traditionally referenced. This new change of mindset - which emphasises process over product - may well question the disciplinary focus of approach to solving complex problems. As Einstein suggests, if we are to make progress and resolve the problems of our time, we need to change our mindsets from the ones that created the problems in the first place.

The search for life in the universe, once the stuff of science fiction, is now a robust worldwide research program with a well-defined roadmap probing both scientific and societal issues. This volume examines the humanistic aspects of astrobiology, systematically discussing the approaches, critical issues, and implications of discovering life beyond Earth. What do the concepts of life and intelligence, culture and civilization, technology and communication mean in a cosmic context? What are the theological and philosophical implications if we find life - and if we do not? Steven J. Dick argues that given recent scientific findings, the discovery of life in some form beyond Earth is likely and so we need to study the possible impacts of such a discovery and formulate policies to deal with them. The remarkable and often surprising results are presented here in a form accessible to disciplines across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

In Aliens and Angels II: The Beginning of the Seven Seals, author Edward A. Marrero Laureano brings forgotten history into view while illuminating the truth. Laureano-a visionary, space and time traveler, and dreamer-discusses his journeys into the past in order to correct history, to explain what really happened, and to clarify why people change history for their benefit. He investigates and exposes the secrets and mysteries that have shrouded history since the beginning of the world, and he reveals subjects that will transform the way humans perceive the universe. Aliens and Angels sheds insights into an array of mysteries: Who is the mysterious woman in the Mona Lisa painting? Where is the exact location of Atlantis? What is the truth about Jesus Christ in the Bible, hidden in plain sight? What is the origin and mechanics of UFOs? Aliens and Angels takes an extraordinary journey through space and time, the past and the future, as Laureano reveals his prophesies and revelations.
