    Inhaltsangabe

    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. Anne and Russell Jorden — two colonists who are seeking a fortune that eluded them on Earth — are expecting their firstborn child.

    The birth of Rebecca Jorden, known to her family as Newt, is a cause for celebration. But as the colony grows and expands, so, too, do the political struggles between a small detachment of Colonial Marines and the Weyland-Yutani scientists posted on Acheron. Willing to overlook their orders in order to serve the Company's interests, these scientists have another far more sinister agenda — to covertly capture a living Alien.

    The wildcatters discover a vast, decaying spaceship. The horseshoe-shaped vessel is of particular interest to Weyland-Yutani and may be the answer to their dreams. But what Anne and Russell find onboard proves to be the stuff not of dreams but of nightmares.

    This terrifying, cinematic, multicast dramatization — directed by the multiaward-winning Dirk Maggs, best known for his adaptations of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere for the BBC — is the sequel to Audible Original's Alien: Out of the Shadows (nominated for Best Audio Drama at the 2017 Audies).

    Starring Golden Globe-nominated Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies, Limitless), Alexander Siddig (Star Trek: Deep Space 9, Game of Thrones), Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman, Doctor Who), Colin Salmon (Alien vs Predator, Arrow, James Bond), Marc Warren (Mad Dogs, Saving Private Ryan, Hustle) and Philip Glenister (Outcast, Life on Mars), with special guest star William Hope returning as Lt. Gorman from James Cameron's Aliens.

    Awesome

    Great filler between Alien and Aliens, the actors are doing a great job as their fictional counterpart.

    Not as good as the first entry but

    Still a solid book. Recommended more to those interested in the setting that led to „aliens“ more than to those interested in an original story.

    Traditional

    Sehr gutes Hörspiel. Die Sprecher sind gut getroffen und die Umgebung ist, gerade für Fans, sehr gut dargestellt, da viel bekanntes dabei ist.
    Man sollte nicht unbedingt eine zu komplexe Geschichte erwarten - ich denke man kann sich am Film "Aliens" orientieren. Ich finde es gut!

    Good Story, Bad Weapon Soundeffekts

    For me are the Soundeffekts the only negativ thing. Where are the original M41 Pulse Rifle Sound? But one plus Point for the genuine Motion Tracker
