Summary
Ripley is the sole survivor after her escape pod crash-lands on Fiorina 161, a bleak planet inhabited by former inmates of a maximum-security facility. When she realizes an alien was also aboard her craft, she is shocked to learn the inmates possess no advanced technology or modern weapons. Yet no weapon can help Ripley after she learns that the alien terror has taken on a frightening and new personal dimension
