Rescue Attempt & DeathEdit
As Ripley rescued Cpl. Hicks, Pvt Hudson and Vasquez, Gorman and Burke, they set off out of the atmoshpere prosessing station to be evaced and nuke the colony from orbit. As Hicks called in for dustoff, Ferro responded, not knowing a Xenomorph had boarded their ship. While flying the cockpit door opened and Ferro thought it was Spunkmeyer. As she turned her head she was shocked to see the Xenomorph behind her. Ferro quickly reached for her pistol but the Xenomorph killed her, spraying her blood all over the cockpit window. Thus making the dropship lose control and crash into the APC where the remaining survivors were.
