June, Science fiction plucks from within us our deepest fears and hopes then shows them to us in rough disguise: the monster and the rocket. W.H. Auden We live, as we dream -- alone. Joseph Conrad "A L I E N" FADE IN SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE: INT. ENGINE ROOM Empty, cavernous. INT. ENGINE CUBICLE Circular, jammed with instruments. All of them idle. Console chairs for two. Empty. INT. OILY CORRIDOR - "C" LEVEL Long, dark. Empty. Turbos throbbing. No other movement. INT. CORRIDOR - "A" LEVEL Long, empty. INT. INFIRMARY - "A" LEVEL
2 Distressed ivory walls. All instrumentation at rest. INT. CORRIDOR TO BRIDGE - "A" LEVEL Black, empty. INT. BRIDGE Vacant. Two space helmets resting on chairs. Electrical hum. Lights on the helmets begin to signal one another. Moments of silence. A yellow light goes on. Data mind bank in b.g. Electronic hum. A green light goes on in front of one helmet. Electronic pulsing sounds. A red light goes on in front of other helmet. An electronic conversation ensues. Reaches a crescendo. Then silence. The lights go off, save the yellow. INT. CORRIDOR TO HYPERSLEEP VAULT Lights come on. Seven gowns hang from the curved wall. Vault door opens. INT. HYPERSLEEP VAULT Explosion of escaping gas. The lid on a freezer pops open. Slowly, groggily, sits up. Pale. Kane rubs the sleep from his eyes. Stands. Looks around. Stretches. Looks at the other freezer compartments. Scratches. Moves off.
3 INT. GALLEY Kane plugs in a Silex. Lights a cigarette. Coughs. Grinds some coffee beans. Runs some water through. Rise and shine, Lambert. INT. HYPERSLEEP VAULT Another lid pops open. A young woman sits up. What time is it. (voice over) What do you care. INT. GALLEY Pot now half-full. Kane watches it drip. Inhales the fragrance. Now Dallas and Ash. (calls out) Good morning Captain. (voice over) Where's the coffee. Brewing. walks into the kitchen. Pours herself a cup. INT. HYPERSLEEP VAULT
4 Two more lids pop open. A pair of men sit up. Look at each other. INT. GALLEY Kane enjoys a freshly-brewed cup. Ripley... Another moment. And then the sound of another lid opening. And if we have Parker, can Brett be far behind. Lid opening sound. Right. INT. HYPERSLEEP VAULT looks at his groggy circus. One of you jokers get the cat. picks up a limp cat out of one of the compartments. INT. MESS The crew of the United States commercial starship Nostromo seated around a table. Dallas...Captain Kane...Executive Officer Ripley...Warrant Officer Ash...Science Officer Lambert...Navigator Parker...Engineer Brett...Engineering Technician Jones...Cat
5 Five men and two women: Lambert and Ripley. Jesus am I cold. Still with us, Brett. Yo. BRETT Lucky us. They yawn, stretch, shiver. Dallas looks over at a flashing yellow light. I feel dead. Kane is not yet fully awake. Yawns. You look dead. Nice to be back. Before we dock maybe we'd better go over the bonus situation. Yeah. BRETT Brett and I think we deserve a full share. You two will get what you contracted for. Just like everybody else.
6 BRETT Everybody else gets more than us. Everybody else deserves more than you two. Mother wants to talk to you. I saw it. Yellow light for my eyes only...now, everybody hit their stations. INT. COMPUTER ROOM ANNEX Floor to ceiling data banks. Another flashing yellow light. A legend underneath. COMMAND PRIORITY ACCESS ONLY. Dallas enters. Sits at his console. Removes insignia master computer key attached to his shirt. Plug it into the board under the light. All banks burst into life. Dallas punches up a computer code on the keyboard. Legend on the screen... What's my God damn key. Print-out from computer answers on the binary side. Thank you Mother. Dallas punches up the combination on the keyboard. Immediately start getting a readout. INT. BRIDGE CUT TO:
7 Above eye level the room is ringed by viewscreens. All of them blank. Kane, Ripley, and Lambert enter. Dallas' seat remains empty. All of them now dressed; they find their way to individual consoles. Ripley puts down the cat, straps herself into the highbacked chair. Plug us in. All three crew members begin throwing switches. The control room starts to come to life. Colored lights flicker. Chase each other across glowing screens. Give us something to look at. Lambert presses a bank of switches. Viewscreens glimmer into life. Take a look at this. On each screen, blackness speckled with stars. Where's Earth. You're the navigator. That's not our system. Scan. Lambert hits several toggles. On the screens the images begin to drift. ONE OF THE SCREENS
8 A moving image of a starfield. EXT. NOSTROMO The Factory Starship lumbering with the depths of inter-stellar space. Function: Capacity: Length: Petroleum tanker and Refinery. 2000,000,000 tons. One and one half kilometers. Battered exterior encrusted with dark sludge. INT. BRIDGE Lambert pores over charts. Consults her console. Puzzled. Contact traffic control. Ripley switches on her transmission unit. This is commercial vessel Nostromo. Registration number Do you read me. Over. Nothing but the hiss of static. Nothing. Keep trying. Turns to Lambert. Ripley attempting transmission in b.g. You got a reading yet. We're way out in the boondocks here...
9 Eureka. Keep trying... Working on it. Found it. Hard to believe. What the hell are we doing out here. What are you talking about. It's not our system. INT. ENGINE ROOM Giant reactor system purring smoothly. INT. ENGINE ROOM and BRETT in a glass cubicle. Each having a beer. Huge powerplant stretching before them. All units on automatic hyper-drive. Parker hits a switch above his desk. A green light goes on. How's your light? BRETT Green. Mine too. They both take a swig.
10 Suddenly a beeper signal begins. Christ. What is it now. BRETT Right. (voice over) Report to the mess. INT. OILY CORRIDOR - "C" LEVEL I want to know why they never come down here. This is where the work is. BRETT Same reason we have half a share to their one, our time is their time, that's the way they see it. Well, I'll tell you something... it stinks. They move towards the companionway. INT. MESS Entire crew present. Some of you may have figured out that we're not home. BRETT What the hell. Mother's interrupted the course of the voyage. Mother is programmed to interrupt
11 the course of out voyage if certain conditions arise. They have... (pause) We've received intermittent transmission from quadrant points QBR 157, 052. Somebody's gone down. BRETT So what. We're obligated under Section B2... Christ. We're a commerical ship not some rescue team. This kind of duty's not in our contract. You better read your contract. Transmissions received in noncommercial lanes... Dallas gives Parker and Brett a look. We're going in, that's it. Brett knows when to ease up. BRETT Right, we're going in. (smiles) Sir. Dallas turns to. Can we land on it. He takes a print-out from Mother out of his hand. The other ship did.
12 That's what I mean. Studies the print-out. It's big enough. reason why not. Can't see any CUT TO: EXT. NOSTROMO AND REFINERY APPROACHING THE STAR/PLANET SYSTEM INT. BRIDGE Dallas at his console speaking to Ash. We're coming into range of the planet. What kind of orbit do you plan for the cargo. Z local vertical mode. You figure it will hold that. You worried about redundancy management disabling CMGS control. Yeah. CMG control is inhibited via DAS/DCS. We'll augment with TACS and monitor through ATMDC and computer interface. (pause) Feel better?
13 A lot. EXT. NOSTROMO Moving within range of the planet. INT. BRIDGE The crew strap themselves to their seats. Prepare for separation and orbital insertion of the cargo. Much preparation for separation, etc. Give me an EC Pressure reading n/c m^2 squared (5 psia) Shout if it changes. Deactivate probe retract system. What about the pressure seal. Dallas hits appropriate switches. Now the probe retract system. Kane hits other equally appropriate switches. Okay. Release captive hatches and disengage probe. Kane working switches and buttons.
14 Disengaged. Dallas punches buttons of his own. EXT. NOSTROMO The Refinery separates from Nostromo. INT. BRIDGE Dallas watches the refinery moving away on a viewscreen. All free and clear. Ash. Orbital insertion complete. Okay. The money's safe. Let's take it down. EXT. NOSTROMO Engines coughing to life. Nostromo begins its descent. Below night's tide rolls across the planet's surface. INT. BRIDGE The viewscreen shimmers. Turbulence. EXT. NOSTROMO Tug-module hydroplaning downward. A set of brilliant lights switch on. Cut through the thick atmosphere.
15 INT. ENGINE ROOM - CUBICLE Parker and Brett strapped in their seats. Begin rocking from the sudden, extreme turbulence. Chirst. Overloading. What the hell are we going through. BRETT Dust fritzing the compressor. There goes the conversion stabilizer. BRETT I don't know if the digital solenoid... Forget it. If we don't crash, dollars to your aunt's cherry we get an electrical fire... INT. BRIDGE The turbulence continues unabated. Lambert's eyes follow cross-plot gauges. Drop begins...now. Fifteen kilometers and descending... twelve...ten...eight and slowing. Five. Three. Two. One kilometer and slowing. Lock tractor breams. A loud electrical hum. Locked.
16 Kill drive engines. The engines fall silent. Nine hundred meters and dropping. Eight hundred. Seven hundred. EXT. PLANET - NIGHT Storm blowing across the night-shrouded surface. The Nostromo hovers on glowing beams of light. Landing struts unfold like insect legs. The ship slams down. Rocks heavily on massive shock absorbers. INT. BRIDGE - NIGHT We're down. An enormous vibration. The panels in the room flash simultaneously. Light go out. Lost it. Lost it. INT. ENGINE ROOM Another huge vibration. An electrical fire breaks out along three control panels. INT. OILY CORRIDOR Huge flash fire whips along corridor. INT. ENGINE ROOM - CUBICLE Parker and Brett see the pandemonium below. Brett hits the secondary generator switch. A pressure valve blows. Another conduit breaks loose. All lights go out. They grab hand lights from wall.
17 INT. BRIDGE Still in darkness. Secondary generator should kick over. Where is it. Moments. Nothing. Kane grabs emergency headlamp from facia. Followed by Dallas and Lambert. What happened? Ripley hits the voice-amp. Engine room, what happened. (voice over) God damn electrical fire, that's what happened. BRETT (voice over) It's big. INT. ENGINE ROOM Parker fighting an electrical fire on one of his panels. Brett shouting into his voice-amp. INT. BRIDGE BRETT The intakes are clogged. We overheated and burned out a whole cell...christ, it's really breaking loose down here...
18 Somebody give me a simple answer, Has the hull been breached. Ripley scans her gauges. I don't see anything. got pressure. We've still A beep from the communicator. Hit the screen. Kane snaps three toggles. The screens flicker, but remain black. Nothing. EXT. SHIP - NIGHT The wind sounds. Storm continues to blow around the craft. A few glittering lights distinguish the Nostromo from absolute darkness. INT. ENGINE ROOM CUBICLE Parker on the communicator to the bridge. INT. BRIDGE 4 panel is totally shot, the secondary load sharing unit is out, at least three cells on 12 module are gone. Ripley listening to Parker. Dallas standing over her. No images on any screens. Is that it.
19 (voice over) Couldn't fix it out here anyway. And we need to reroute a couple of these ducts. Can't really fix them without a whole drydock... What else. (voice over) We lost a cell. Some fragments caked up and blew the whole system. We've got to clean it all out and repressurize. BRETT (voice over) Right. Get started on 4 panel. be down in five minutes. I'll She shuts off her voice communicator. How long before we're functional. Fifteen to twenty hours... Stay on it. What about the auxiliaries. Working on it. EXT. SHIP - NIGHT Bridge lights come to life. Illuminate nothing but a patch of featureless ground. The wind and storm now at a higher pitch.
20 INT. BRIDGE Dallas, Kane, Lambert, and Ash. Slouched around the bridge. Drinking coffee. Occasionally staring at the opaque screens. Pause. EXT. SHIP Any response yet. Nothing but the same transmission every thirty-two seconds. All the other channels are dead. Kick on the floods. CUT TO: A ring of floodlights comes to life. Dimly illuminating the rocky landscape. The wind and dust now at a higher pitch. INT. BRIDGE - NIGHT Dallas stares at the dark screens. We can't go anywhere in this. CUT TO: Mother says the sun's coming up in about twenty minutes. How far from the source of the transmission.
21 Northeast... about 3000 meters. Close enough to walk. Let's run an atmospheric. Ash punches buttons, starts to consult his panel. 10 percent agron, 85 precent nitrogen, 5 percent neon...i'm working on the trace elements. Pressure. Ten to the fourth dynes per square centimeter. Moisture content. None. Zero. Anything else. Rock, lava base. And cold... well below the centrigrade line. I volunteer for the first group going out. I hear you. Lambert. You too. Pause. Swell.
22 One more thing. some weapons. Let's get out EXT. SHIP - DAWN Sunrise. The atmosphere begins to lighten. Silhouette of the Nostromo becoming dimly visible. Starship perched on barren rock. More rolling clouds of dust. The floodlights automatically shut off. INT. ENGINE ROOM CUBICLE Parker and Brett laser welding one of the ducts. Shirts off. Sweat steaming. Ripley rewiring one of the panels. Parker shuts down the laser, inspects the fusion. Hey, Ripley, I got a question. Yeah. Do we get to go out on the expedition or are we stuck here until everything's fixed. You know the answer to that. BRETT What about the shares in case they find anything. Don't worry, you'll both get what's coming to you. BRETT I'm not doing any more work unless
23 we get full shares. You're guaranteed by law that you'll get a share... Now both of you knock it off and get back to work. Parker looks at her. Snaps on the laser weld. Starts to join another section of the duct. BRETT Right. INT. MAIN AIR LOCK - DAWN Dallas, Kane and Lambert enter the lock. All wear gloves, boots, jackets. Carry laser pistols. Kane touches a button. Servo whine. Then the inner door slides quietly shut. The trio pull on their helmets. I'm sending. Do you hear me. Receiving. Receiving. All right. Keep away from the weapons unless I say otherwise. INT. 'S BLISTER - DAWN Ash descends companionway to blister. Punches up screens and instrumentation. INT. MAIN AIR LOCK - DAWN
24 Open the hatch. Another servo whine. Ponderously, the outer lock hatch slides open. Clouds of dust and steam swirl before the three crew members. A mobile gangway slides out the open hatch. Burnt orange sunlight beyond. EXT. PLANET - DAWN The trio walk down the gangplank. Arrive at surface level. Their feet striking onto a thick layer of lava rock. The wind at gale force. Which way. Over here. You lead. Lambert walks into the storm. Followed closely by the others. Now I can't see a God damn thing. (voice over) Turn on the finder. It's on...ash are you receiving. INT. 'S BLISTER - DAWN Ash leaning over his console. Watches them beneath him. Corresponding images on the screen in front of him. See you. Read you. Good contact on my board.
25 (voice over) Getting you clear and free. keep the line open. Let's EXT. PLANET - DAWN The three crew members push their way along. Like divers at the bottom of a dark sea. The wind and dust continues driving down in dark sheets. Lambert repeats. Can't see more than three meters in any direction. Quit griping. I like griping. Come on. They wade on, following Lambert. She halts abruptly. Confused. INT. BLISTER - DAWN Ash watches intently. Images on each screen of the trio. (voice over) I've got it again. Any problems. (voice over) Yeah. A lot of dust and wind. Starting to get some fade on the
26 beam. EXT. PLANET - DAWN The trio moves through a dark limbo. This way. Lambert indicates left. Moves in that direction. The others follow. The storm growing. It's close. They approach a towering rock formation. The transmission stops. It's gone again. Did we pass it. Not unless it's underground. Let's take a break. They shelter with the rock formation. Storm howls round them. Dallas adjusts headset. The signal starts. I've got it again. Let's go. How about our break. No. Let's move on while we've got the signal, again. Dallas gets up.
27 They stand for a moment... Then move away from the rock formation. Fossilized into the other side of the rock is a shape. Fifteen feet tall. Unseen by the members of the party. INT. BLISTER - DAWN Ash receiving the video transmission. Notices something within the formation. Freezes the image. Enlarges it. Enlarges again. EXT. THE NOSTROMO - SUNRISE Atmosphere turning the color of blood. Then the sun is up. EXT. THE NOSTROMO - SUNRISE Brett and Parker still at work. Ripley moves away from her panel in triumph... She leaves. You ought to be able to handle the rest. Don't worry. If you run into trouble, I'll be on the bridge. BRETT Right. Bitch. INT. BLISTER - DAY
28 Ash still working on the video image. Enhances the enlargement. Transfers the image to cathode ray. The image reveals itself to be a giant form. Indistinct. Ripley's voice comes over. (voice over) How's it going. Ash quickly shuts off the video image. Hits the intercom. INT. BRIDGE Ripley at her console. Looking at Ash on her screen. Ash's video image not visible to Ripley. (voice over) All right. Have you tried putting the transmission through ECIU. (voice over) Mother hasn't identified it as yet. It's not a language. I'll give it a shot. (voice over) Be my guest. She pushes some button. The noise is now heard on her speaker. EXT. PLANET - DAY
29 Dust clearing. Three tiny figures against the landscape. EXT. PLANET - DAY Empty landscape. Then Kane comes up over a rise startled by what he sees. Suddenly the transmission is deafening. Jesus Christ. Dallas and Lambert join him equally startled. THEIR P.O.V. - DAY A gargantuan construction rising from the rock. Clearly of nonhuman manufacture. EXT. PLANET - DAY Noise still at shrill pitch. All members of the party shouting into their voice-amps. Some kind of spaceship. Are you sure. It's weird... Ash, can you see this. INT. 'S BLISTER - DAY Ash looking at the craft on a screen. Yeah. Never seen one like it. Neither has Mother. (voice over) Keep checking for enhancement.
30 Whatever the transmission is, it's inside that. (voice over) I'll go in and have a look. (voice over) Hold on. Ash, I don't see any lights or movements. Do you. I can't get any reading. EXT. PLANET - DAY (voice over) It's putting out so much power I just can't get any reading. Dallas shuts off his receiver. Sudden quiet. A long moment. It looks pretty dead from here. We'll approach the base. They move toward the ship. INT. BLISTER - DAY Ash still adjusting image of form in rock. It suddenly resolves. A skeleton. Fifteen feet long. He enlarges the image. (voice over) There's only one thing I can... Dallas' voice fades in and out. As do their images on the screen.
31 No reply. Dallas... (frantically punches buttons on console) Dallas...Do you read me. INT. BRIDGE - DAY Ripley is running the transmission through ECIU. Over the speakers Dallas' voice fades in. (voice over) No sign of life. No movement... No lights... She studies a long series of binary programs... (voice over) We're beneath the base. His voice fades into static. Disappears. EXT. STRUCTURE - DAY CUT TO: The lower part of the entrance filled with dust and pumice. Looks like an entrance. Yeah... Let's move inside... They climb up to one of the apertures and enter. INT. CHAMBER - DAY They move into a high-ceilinged chamber. Walls covered with shadowy lattices. Ghostly light filters dust-filled air.
32 A few meters in an opening appears. Dallas leans over and looks into the hole. Only blackness. He unclips the light from his belt. Shines it down into the hole. It just goes down... smooth walls. I can't see the bottom, light won't reach. Kane and Lambert come over. Dallas begins unclipping gear from his belt. Let's take a look around here first. Kane and Lambert exchange a glance. Dallas shines his light about, sees... A large, glossy urn, tan coloration. Round opening at the rop, empty within. Then Dallas shines his light on nearby lattice... Moves closer. Over here. They approach. Train their lights along the floor. A machine. On the mechanism, a small bar moves steadily back and forth. Sliding noiselessly in the grooves. Still functioning. Lambert looks down at her direction finder. Automatic recording. Dallas snaps it off.
33 Now for a look down below. (looks at Kane) This is your big chance. Okay. Don't unhook yourself from the cable. Be out in less than ten minutes. Read me. Aye aye. Dallas rigs a tripod over the opening in the floor. Unspools a couple of feet of wire. Kane attaches the end of it to his chest unit. Climbs over the lip and drops it into the hole. Now hanging by the wire... Head and shoulders out of the opening. Kane activates the climbing unit. Lowers himself into the fissure. INT. STRUCTURE OPENING Kane braces his feet against the wall of the vertical shaft. Switches on his light, points it into the depths. The beam penetrates only thirty feet or so, then is lost in darkness. Hotter in here. from below. Warm air rising He starts down, playing out the line. Descending in short leaps. Stops to catch his breath. Breathing rasping loudly in his helmet. A little sunlight filters from above. Looking up, Kane can see the mouth of the hole... A glowing spot of light. (voice over) You okay in there.
34 Haven't hit bottom yet. This is work. Can't talk now. He kicks off and continues down. Taking longer and longer hops as he gains confidence. Pausing for a moment to regain his breath, he shines the light on his instruments. INT. BRIDGE I'm below ground level. Ripley at her console, still working on transmission. Gets a readout. Looks worried. Speaks into communicator. Pause. Ash, tell Dallas Mother speculates that the noise is some kind of warning. (voice over) I can't tell him anything. I've lost contact. The transmission around the ship is killing all communications. I'm going out after them. (voice over) I don't think so. We can't spare the personnel. We've got minimum takeoff capability right now. That's why Dallas left us on board.
35 I still think we should go after them. (voice over) What's the point. In the time it take to get there. They'll know if it's a warning. Ripley looks steadily at Ash on her monitor. His screen, not visible to her, shows blowup of helmeted, skeletal head. Not human. INT. STRUCTURE Kane resumes his downward climb. Suddenly, his feet lose their purchase as the walls of the shaft disappear. The tunnel has reached its end. Below him is a dark, cavernous space. Deep breaths due to his violent exertion. (voice over) See anything? No...Tunnel's gone. Cave or something below me. Feels like the goddamn tropics in here... He consults his instruments. Helmet instrumentation strobing softly in the darkness....high nitrogen content, no oxygen... Still puffing, he releases his purchase on the stone walls. Begins to lower himself on power. Now Kane is dangling free in darkness. Spinning slowly on the wire as the chest unit unwinds. Then his feet hit bottom. Kane grunts in surprise, almost loses his balance. He flashes his suit lights. The beams reveal that he is in a large hold.
36 Row after row of extrusions stretch from floor to ceiling. This is weird. (voice over) What do you mean. There's something all over the walls. Kane walks across the chamber. Examines the organic protrusions. INT. CHAMBER ABOVE Dallas and Lambert. How long till sunset. Twenty minutes. A look from Lambert. INT. HOLD Kane approaches the center of the room. On the floor are rows of leathery ovoid shapes. He walks around them. Shines his light on one. It's like some kind of storage area. Is anybody there. Do you read me. (voice over) Loud and clear. The place is full of leathery
37 things sealed...soft to the touch. (voice over) Can you see what's in them. I'll give it a look. He tries to open one of them. It won't open. Strange feeling to it. (voice over) Don't open it. what's in it. You don't know Kane peers closely at the leathery ovoids. Turns away. Raised areas begin to appear where he touched it. He moves his light along the rows. Turns back to the one he was examining. Something has changed. The opaque surface begins to clear. Object becoming visible within. Kane shines his light on the floor at the base of it. He studies it. Jesus... (voice over) What. Viscera and mandible now visible. The interior surface spongy and irregular. Kane shines the light inside. With shocking violence, a small creature smashes outward. Fixes itself to his mask. Sizzling sound. The creature melts through the mask.
38 Attaches itself to Kane's face. Kane tears at the thing with his hands. His mouth forced open. He falls backward. INT. CHAMBER ABOVE Kane...Kane can you hear me. What's the matter. We better haul him out. It'll yank him right off his feet if he's not expecting it. Try him again. Kane...Kane...Goddamn it. me. Answer Dallas begins to fiddle with the wench mechanism. Pause. The line's slack. He doesn't answer. (pause) Do you think he could have unhooked himself. Dallas switches on the winch motor. With a whine, it begins to reel the line in. After a moment the line tightens with a jerk. The motor slows, laboring under added weight.
39 It caught. Is it hooked on something. No, it's coming. I can't see anything. Dallas shines his light down into the hole. Shakes his head. Line's still moving. A long moment. Dallas shines his light again. Here he comes. The winch labors heavily. Get ready to grab him. Kane appears at the top of the opening. Dangles limply from the wire. Dallas reaches for him, then recoils. Look out. There's something on his face. Lambert attempts to help. What is it. Kane appears to be completely unconscious. The life form is still wrapped motionless around his face. Oh Jesus.
40 Don't touch it. They grapple with Kane's limp body. Lift him from the hole. INT. ENTRANCE TO DERELICT - SUNSET Kane is now pinioned between Dallas and Lambert. The storm raging through and beyond the entrance... Dallas begins to assemble travois. EXT. THE NOSTROMO - SUNSET Atmosphere turning the color of blood. And the sun is down. The ring of floodlights on the ship comes to life. Feebly combatting the darkness and continuing storm. INT. BRIDGE Jones the cat staring through a port opening at the storm. Ripley waiting on the bridge. Ash stares at his inactive monitors. Suddenly: We've got them. on the screens. They're back How many. Three blips. They're coming this way. Ripley presses transmitter. Dallas, Lambert. Can you read me. (voice over) We hear you. We're coming back...
41 Kane's injured... We'll need some help getting him in. Ripley stares at the screen. I'll go. Ash moves from the room. Ripley remains seated at her console. EXT. LANDING LEG - NIGHT Dallas and Lambert dragging Kane on a travois towards landing leg. INT. PASSAGEWAY NEAR AIR LOCK Ash comes down the steps. Hurries to the inner door lock. Presses the wall voice-amp. Ripley, I'm by the inner lock hatch. Okay. (voice over) EXT. LANDING LEG - NIGHT Dallas and Lambert drag Kane onto lift platform. INT. PASSAGEWAY NEAR AIR LOCK Parker comes running up. What's going on. Kane got hurt somehow. How bad.
42 Ash shrugs. Brett appears at the top of the companionway. Puzzled look on his face. INT. BRIDGE Ripley seated alone in the room. Dallas appears as a huge image on all screens. Lambert behind him. Kane pinioned to Dallas. (voice over) Ripley, are you there. Right here. (voice over) We're coming up. lock. Open the What happened to Kane. I need a clear definition. (voice over) Some kind of organism. attached itself to him. It's Let us in. (long moment) You hear me. Open the lock. If we let it in, the ship could be infected. (voice over) Goddamn it. Open the hatch. We've already broken every rule

If you were in my position you'd do the same. INT. PASSAGEWAY NEAR AIR LOCK (voice over) Ripley, do you hear me. (voice over) I read you. The answer is negative. Ash hits the emergency switch. A red light goes on. Servo whine. Followed by a solid metallic chunk. Inner hatch open. INT. BRIDGE - NIGHT Ripley staring at the console. She can't believe what she sees. Turns to the viewscreens. Watches Dallas, Kane and Lambert enter. INT. PASSAGEWAY NEAR AIR LOCK The servo again turns over. Another clunk. The outer door has closed. Red light off. The inner door slides open. Dallas and Lambert stagger into passageway.
44 Carry Kane's body between them. Dallas pulls off his helmet. Stay clear. Ash and Parker move back. God. Is it alive. I don't know, but don't touch it. Take him to the infirmary. BRETT Right. Ash and Brett move in carefully to help with the limp burden. INT. INFIRMARY Kane's helmet. Hands begin to open it with a laser cutter. The helmet separates easily. The two halves part......the life form slowly pulsing on Kane's face. Dallas hesitates, then puts his hand on the small Creature. Tries to pull it free. Unsuccessful. The Alien remains anchored to Kane's tissue. Let me try. Ash takes a pair of pliers from a rack. Carefully grasps the tip of the Creature. Squeezes tightly. Leans back.
45 You're tearing his face. A trickle of blood appears on Kane's cheek. BRETT It's not going to come off without pulling his whole faceoff at the same time. Let the machine work on him. The Ash presses a switch. The machine lights up. Kane is sucked into a slot on the wall. Visible inside through the glass layer. A blinding colored light performs antisepsis. Two video monitors pop on. ANGLE ON THE DOORWAY Ripley appears. Dallas turns and looks at her. A long moment. When I give an order, I expect it to be obeyed. Even if it's against the law. That's right. Lambert steps forward and slaps Ripley across the face. Ripley slowly puts her hand to her cheek. You were going to leave us out there. Maybe she should have. hell knows what that is.
