Publisher's 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.


What the Critics Say

"[Narrator] Laurel Lefkow shines as Ripley - her mature, sarcastic tone barely concealing her raw terror at reliving a nightmare. The mix of music, sound effects, and vocals is painstakingly orchestrated - from the creaks of the ship to the subtle shifts in atmospheric tone as the characters enter different situations. Add in a diverse ensemble of voices, and this production succeeds in keeping the listener in the center of the action." (AudioFile magazine)

if I had to pick one criticism about this audio drama. it's that it's not longer!

the performance by all the cast in this is fantastic! Laurel Lefkow, the voice of Ripley, really sells it. a number of times I was convinced this was Sigourney Weaver herself speaking!

it's just fantastic! I wish it was longer!

Didn't put it down!

So this was my first audible, i was initially expecting and audio book but very happy with this performance audio.

At first I was apprehensive, the start didn't grab me, perhaps it was a little to close to the original books/movie for my liking. As it turns out (without giving it away) it all seemed it fit quite nicely with the series.

I seemed to have filled all my spare time (and also time I should have been working) listening to this, so that's a good sign!

It's gripping, tense, the characters are very likeable and real!

If your into the alien series (or like myself your not really) then it's worth a listen. If your into the space or the sci-fi again it's worth a listen
