Ellen Ripley finally returns to Earth, only to discover that LV-426 — where the crew of the Nostromo first came into contact with the deadly xenomorphs — has been renamed Acheron. Protected by Colonial Marines, the colonists seek to terraform the storm-swept planet against all the odds. But in the face of brutal living conditions and the daily struggles of a new world, there is humanity and hope.

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.

This wasn't too bad, I really enjoyed it. The story had my mind going, and the person that played Ripley (albeit a bit more dramatic than I remember Ripley being) did a really sound like Sigourney Weaver. I would love to hear more of the alien series like this. Only complaint, and its not really a complaint, is the exposition could be a bit more subtle. But then again, how would you get it across to your listener, i suppose. Worth a listen.
