The only problem is, Thompson's life may be all a dream. The reality may be that he's trapped underground in an escape pod with hours to live. And, creatures with claws and acid blood are pounding on the door...
While trying to cope with a mysterious epidemic, the scientific expedition is nearly wiped out by a series of horrific encounters with the Aliens -- and Thompson tries to keep a grip on his sanity in an underground sanctuary.
Surveyor Thompson was sure he had destroyed the Aliens. But when the vile creatures start sprouting human chestbursters, he gets the distinct feeling that he's hallucinating . . . again. Trapped in an underground escape pod, he recollects his crew's fatal meeting with the Aliens, and finally deduces the Company's plot against them. But just because Thompson's trapped, doesn't mean he's helpless. He's devised a plan to avenge his colleagues and implicate the Company, even if it costs him his life.
