Waking up unexpectedly from hypersleep, Lisbeth and the rest of the crew must figure out why the spaceship they are on, the Legato, has been diverted to intercept the USS Sulaco leaving LV-426's orbit.
In a post-apocalyptic 2007, Cyber Commando Rex Powercolt faces off against his former commander Colonel Sloan, and tries to stop his nefarious plot to use dragon blood to turn the world's population into primitive savages.
During the events of Aliens, Carter Burke manages to send a message to Weyland-Yutani confirming the existence of the Xenomorphs. In response, the company dispatches an expedition to LV-426, including the command ship Resolute and the advanced research transport USS Legato which carried a cargo of human colonists kept in stasis to be used as hosts to breed Xenomorphs. However, the expedition arrived at the moon only after the destruction of Hadley's Hope and the departure of the USS Sulaco. After the Weyland-Yutani team discover the ruins of the craft, harvest the Eggs on board, and begin establishing a research facility there. The company pinpoints the location of the Sulaco through the network and the colony's computer logs, and send the Legato to intercept the cruiser. Just as they connect with the Sulaco, a Xenomorph outbreak erupts on the Legato.
