  • Summary

  • As a child, Chris Hooper dreamed of monsters. But in deep space, he found only darkness and isolation. Then, on planet LV178, he and his fellow miners discovered a storm-scoured, sand-blasted hell - and trimonite, the hardest material known to man.

    When a shuttle crashes into the mining ship Marion, the miners learn that there was more than trimonite deep in the caverns. There was evil, hibernating and waiting for suitable prey. Hoop and his associates uncover a nest of Xenomorphs, and hell takes on a new meaning. Quickly they discover that their only hope lies with the unlikeliest of saviors....

    ....Ellen Ripley, the last human survivor of the salvage ship Nostromo.

    Unconscious, unaware, Ripley is the last human survivor of the Nostromo, her shuttle lost in deep space. Meanwhile, the crew aboard the mining ship Marion, faces a catastrophic collision with one of its own dropships and has to contend with the alien infestation on board.

    Marooned in a decaying orbit above the planetoid LV-178, the crew struggle to tackle the threat at hand, when an unexpected visitor makes her presence known.

    Ripley’s shuttle has docked with the Marion. She arrives traumatised, only to find her rescuers under attack by a familiar foe. To make matters worse, it seems that Ash, an android she’d thought killed aboard the Nostromo, has uploaded his AI routines into her shuttle’s computer.

    Outside, the ship’s orbit is decaying faster than expected. The crew has just days to escape before they burn up in LV-178’s atmosphere.

    Ripley and the crew aboard the Marion are running out of options to escape certain death. Their orbit is decaying rapidly. With only a few days to decide, they settle on a plan. If they can deal with the alien infestation on board the Samson, their remaining undamaged dropship, they may be able to return to LV-178’s mining installation and retrieve the vital fuel they need to escape on Ripley’s shuttle.

the best audible experience on earth

If Audible had an option, who lets you choose that ONE book that is 10* out of 5*, it would be this one. this is the futur of audiobooks, that feeling, right there. That experience, this is it. If every book could be lived through the same way the naraters interpreted this one, the TV industries would go bankcrupt. Thank you so much for this mind-blowing experience, this ia a whole new level of Audiobook quality..

Your top fan,
Ellen Ripley

Just wow ❤️

As a HUGE fan of the series I was skeptical at first I mean, what can you add to the masterpieces that are the 1st and second movies.... Well it was added !!! It takes toy right back. The voices are actually perfect, scenario is edge of your seat.... God I wish this could be like Alien 2.0... Fits right in between. If you're a fan or just want an awesome ride in sci-fi genre then try this ❤️❤️❤️❤️

fantastic acting and sound effects

I stayed interested the entire time. The ambient sounds to the machine and clothes rustling noises added to the ease of understanding what the characters were "seeing". Great job cast, crew, and all involved in the production.

Doesn't make sense in the Alien storyline

The events don't fit into the alien timeline at all and as a result of that you know how the book is going to end about halfway through. Audible doesn't an amazing job with the performance and because of that it's fun to listen to but the story is terrible and doesn't make any sense at all.

solid

This was a lot more fun than I was anticipating. I love Big Finish's Doctor Who dramas but was very pleased by this one.

pleasantly surprised

the performance is amazing, the recording quality is fabulous and the sound effects are not too jarring or loud. it really lets you visualize whats happening instead of it being surprised. i found the story so far to be a bit cheesy, but it fits with the Alien movies style, though i wish there was better use of language during diologue. overall it is great, it kept my attention but i could also fall asleep as i listened. very entertaining.
