After floating in space for 57 years, Lt. Ripley’s (Sigourney Weaver) shuttle is found by a deep space salvage team. Upon arriving at LV-426, the marines find only one survivor, a nine year old girl named Newt (Carrie Henn). But even these battle-hardened marines with all the latest weaponry are no match for the hundreds of aliens that have invaded the colony.

As part of my research in building an accurate Alien Universe Map I have transcribed the following section from the Colonial Marines Technical Manual. DISPOSITION AND READINESS Marine Space Force, Sol, is headquartered at O’Niell station, L-4 Earth-Lunar system. Its major units consist of the 1st Colonial Marine Division, 1st Marine Aerospace Wing and the […]

WORLDS Humanity has reached hundreds of worlds, and has established dozens of Colonies and Outposts. These worlds are scattered across dozens of light-years and cover a wide range of environments, and the Human and non-Human inhabitants are just as diverse. Some of the most notable worlds are discussed below. The GM should feel free to […]

This sector was the first to yield an Earthlike world, the planet of New Eden itself.Exploration was handled by a coalition which renamed itself New Eden/JV after the world which made it rich. This Sector is comparatively stable, compared to the strife of CSC Sector and the danger and uncertainty of the Borodino Sector. The […]

The first terraforming project of the CSC was established here. The site is largely empty, and most of the valuable components have been moved to Starview. The toxic atmosphere and sulphur bogs have defied terraforming, and after decades of work the project was abandoned in favour of the more pleasant Starview. There is still one Atmosphere Processor in operation here, […]

This is the site of exploratory mining and drilling operations. The world’s composition indicates that it has potential as a source of several rare elements, and science crews are still evaluating it. At present, only remote exploration sites are set up, with teams from CSC and a number of freelance groups licensed to conduct the […]

One of a group of Colonies developed by CSC after the secession of Alexandria. The Colony is in a domed community on the major moon in orbit around the planet of Volcus itself, and neither the moon nor the planet is terraformed. Volcus is a world ruled by volcanic forces, with vast magma flows covering […]

This is the latest find of CSC, and it already has a sizeable population. This world is better in many ways than Alexandria, and once terraforming is complete it will become the primary world for CSC. The terraforming effort will take another half century to complete, however, despite the best efforts of CSC’s scientists, because […]

This is a small moon which possesses a few mining communities. These operations are centred on the crater left by the impact of an ancient meteor. Unique and valuable minerals were created by the combination of the meteor’s and the moon’s materials, subjected to the tremendous heat and pressures generated by the impact. Dome operations […]
