Meanwhile Burke tries to get several Xenomorph specimens back to Earth by attempting to impregnate Ripley and Newt. They are saved, and as Burke is about to be executed by Hicks, the Xenomorphs attack.
    • July 28th - T-Minus 42 minutes - Newt leads Ripley, Hicks, Vasquez and Gorman through the colony airducts, after Hudson and Burke are lost in the inital Xenomorph assault. Vasquez and Gorman are killed during the evacuation, Newt is captured and Hicks is critically wounded, but makes it to the landing field with Ripley's help.
    • July 28th - T-Minus 26 minutes - The second dropship from the Sulaco touches down. Ripley informs Bishop they aren't leaving.
    • July 28th - T-Minus 15 minutes - Ripley heads back into the disintegrating processing station, rescues Newt and encounters the Xenomorph Queen.
    • July 28th - T-Minus 2 minutes - Ripley and Newt get back to the drop-ship and escape, only seconds before the station explodes.
    • July 28th - The Alien Queen (along with an egg) stows away on the drop-ship and attacks the group when they arrive back on the Sulaco. Bishop is torn in half. Ripley manages to battle the Queen hand-to-hand using a powerloader and blows the Queen out of the airlock.
    • Both the Xenomorph hive and the derelict spacecraft survived the explosion of the atmosphere processing station.
    • August 8th - The egg left by the Alien Queen on the USS Sulaco, hatches and impregnates Ripley while she is in hypersleep. Some of the facehugger’s acid blood causes a fire, and the Sulaco’s main computer evacuates the ship. The hypersleep chambers of Ripley, Newt, Hicks, and Bishop are put on board Emergency Evacuation Vehicle (EEV) unit 2650.
    • August 9th - 0600 - Emergency Evacuation Vehicle (EEV) unit 2650 crashes on Fiorina "Fury" 161, an outer veil mineral ore refinery and mens maximum security correctional facility. Hicks and Newt are killed in the crash and Bishop is rendered inoperative. Superintendant Harold Andrews requests Weyland-Yutani immediately evacuate Ripley. Meanwhile the facehugger on the EEV impregnates, Spike, a dog belonging to Prisoner Thomas Murphy.
    • August 9th - 2100 - Newt and Hicks' bodies are cremated in the furnace. During the ceremony, a Runner hatches from Spike.
    • August 10th - 12th - The Runner attacks Murphy who falls into a giant fan and is killed. It later attacks Prisoners Boggs and Rains, while Prisoner Golic escapes. Ripley reactivates Bishop who accesses the Sulaco's flight recorder and tells her that the Alien was on board the Sulaco and is now on Fiorina. Shortly after, Medical Officer Johnathan Clemens is killed by the Runner. Before Ripley can alert Andrews, he is also taken by the Runner. A number of prisoners are killed in a fire while attempting to trap the Alien. It is revealed that Ripley has a Xenomorph Queen gestating inside of her. The next attempt to kill the Runner results in all the remaining prisoners deaths, apart from Prisoners Robert Morse and Leonard Dillon. Dillon is killed when he lures the Runner into the refinery’s lead works. Prisoner Morse dumps hot lead on the Runner, from which it escapes. Ripley turns the sprinklers on it, shattering the molten Runner into pieces. Michael Weyland arrives on the starship Patna at Fiorina, escorted by a special forces unit just in time to see Ripley throw herself into the refinery’s furnace in order to stop Weyland-Yutani getting their hands on a Xenomorph specimen. Francis Aaron is shot when he attacks Michael. Genetic samples of Ripley are collected. The Fiorina 161 facility is closed down and the sole survivor, Prisoner Morse is relocated.
  • 2180
    • The USS Sephora arrives on LV-426 with a battalion sized force and a full compliment of surface bound nuclear warheads on a mission to investigate the USS Sulaco after it was dispatched to LV-426 19 weeks earlier.

Late 22nd Century

  • Prisoner Morse writes an account of the events on Fiorina 161, telling how Ellen Ripley sacrificed her own life to protect them from the beast. Morse’s story is subsequently banned.

Alien Resurrection Timeline (200 years after 2179)

Before Alien Resurrection

  • The android industry goes into a decline.
  • War breaks out between the Third World Empire and the United Americas.
  • DNA samples that belonged to Ellen Ripley who died on Fiorina 161 some 177 years earlier are re-discovered by the United System Military.
  • In an attempt to revitalise the android industry, second generation androids or Auton’s (androids designed by androids) are developed. The Autons rebel, a re-call is issued and only a few escape the ensuing massacre.
  • Dr. Mason Wren gains funding and begins research on Ripley's DNA samples, in the hopes of cloning a Xenomorph.
  • The crew of the pirate craft Betty consisting of Captain Frank Elgyn, Sabra Hillard, Johner, Christie, and John Vriess run into trouble on the planet Kawlang. Vriess is crippled when shrapnel pierces his spinal column. After they escape Vriess is confined to a motorised wheelchair.
  • Doctors Jonathan Gediman, Carlyn Williamson, Matt Kinloch, Yoshi Watanabe, Brian Clauss, Dan Sprague are assigned to the top secret medical research vessel USM Auriga along with graduate Trish Fontaine. The first of the Ripley clones are created.
  • Annalee Call joins the crew of the Betty.
  • Vincent Distephano is assigned to the USM Auriga.
  • A transport carrying workers to the planet Xarem is intercepted by the Betty. The passengers are taken hostage.

During Alien Resurrection

  • Doctors Wren and Gediman aboard the USM Auriga, stationed just beyond Pluto’s orbit and commanded by General Perez, successfully create a clone of Ellen Ripley on the eighth attempt. The Xenomorph Queen inside her is removed, but some of their DNA mixes during the cloning process.
  • Ripley #8 attacks Dr Wren during a routine medical examination.
  • The Betty docks with the Auriga and unloads its cargo. The abducted passengers are impregnated with Xenomorph embryos, which hatch shortly after.
  • T-minus 3 hours to Earth dock - The full grown Xenomorphs escape and run amok through the ship, killing or capturing most of the crew, including General Perez. Ripley along with Dr Wren, Private Vincent Distephano and the crew of the Betty attempt to escape from the Auriga, which is autopiloting back to Earth. During the escape, Elgyn, Christie, and Hillard are killed or captured. They encounter Ripley’s seven previous clones, which Ripley destroys, and one impregnated survivor from the Xarem transport named Larry Purvis. Wren turns on the group and shoots Call, making his own way to the Betty.
  • T-minus 90 (42) minutes to Earth dock - It is revealed that Call is an Auton. Call accesses "FATHER" (the Auriga’s computer) and adjusts its flight path so it will crash, rather than land on Earth, and speeds the ship up (thereby speeding up the ship's flight time to 42 minutes). Ripley is captured by the Aliens, while Call, Johner, Vriess, Distephano and Purvis make it to the Betty. However Wren has beaten them already and threatens to kill Call unless she resets the Auriga’s flight path. As Purvis’ embryo begins to emerge, he fights Wren, placing Wren’s head over his chest. The embryo hatches killing Purvis and Wren. Distephano, Johner, and Call kill the chestburster. Meanwhile, Ripley #8 witnesses the birth of the Newborn, a Xenomorph/Human hybrid. The Newborn kills the Xenomorph Queen, then comes after Ripley. Ripley races back to the Betty and boards, just as it takes off.
  • 4:00am UT - The Betty escapes as the Auriga crashes into southern Africa and explodes at approximately 6:00am local time. However, the Newborn is on board the Betty, and it kills Distephano, then goes after Call. Ripley manages to tame it momentarily, while flinging some of her own acidic blood on a porthole. The porthole disintegrates and the Newborn is sucked out. The Betty enters Earth’s atmosphere and evenutally lands in ship graveyard near Montmartre in Paris. Ripley and Call contemplate their next move.
