Set between Alien and Aliens, the book chronicles Ellen Ripley's involvement in a Xenomorph outbreak on the planet LV178 and the mining vessel in orbit above it. The survivors' attempts to escape the creatures are further complicated by Ash, whose AI consciousness has survived inside the shuttle that brought Ripley to them.
Originally slated for release in December 2013, the book was later delayed until January 7, 2014. It was later delayed again, and finally saw release on January 28, 2014. The novel is the first in a trilogy tied into the movies, and was followed by Alien: Sea of Sorrows, written by James A. Moore and released on July 29, 2014.

|Did You Know?|
- Predator designer Stan Winston has repeatedly credited Aliens director and personal friend James Cameron for coming up with the Predator's distinctive mandibles when Cameron suggested them to him on a flight they were taking together.
- Corporal Hicks was originally portrayed by actor James Remar in Aliens. However, Remar was caught in possession of illegal substances and consequently was fired from the production after two weeks of filming. The part was recast with Michael Biehn. Despite the recasting, Remar actually appears as Hicks in the finished version of the film, in the wide shot where the Colonial Marines first encounter the Alien Hive.
- During the scene in Aliens where the Colonial Marines land and deploy in the APC, Sergeant Apone tells the Marines they have 10 seconds until they arrive. If you count from Apone's line until the first Marine jumps out of the carrier and his boots hit the ground, it really is 10 seconds.
- In Alien, the blue laser lights in the derelict ship's Egg chamber were borrowed from The Who; the band was testing out the lasers for their stage show in the soundstage next door.
