1. Request for Re-assignment
"Dr. Conrad, I'd like to... I'd like to formally request a transfer off Project Ilithyia. Though I... appreciate the opportunity to be involved in such cutting-edge research, I fear that I will not be per... personally capable of performing my duties to their fullest. Thank you. This is from Dr, Stanton... by the way." — Dr. Stanton


2. RE: Request for Re-assignment
"Dr. Stanton, I'm rejecting your transfer request and I'm rejecting it for one simple reason: There's nothing to be nervous about. I understand what you're going through — believe me, a few weeks ago, I practically was you. But I've been assured — assured mind you — that our safety is priority one. By now you'll noticed the extra security provided by our benefactors. As long as the PMCs are on the Sulaco you will be safe." — Dr. Conrad


3. RE: RE: Request for Re-assignment
"You're not understanding me, Conrad — I'm not worried about my own safety. I'm telling you that I am no longer willing to contribute to Project Ilithyia. You can of course count on my discretion but I can't... I just can't do this any more. And I think you know as I do that these soldiers aren't here for our protection. We can't even..." — Dr. Stanton

"Dr. Stanton? Come with me please." — Unknown male

"I... sure, of course." — Dr. Stanton


4. Please Mom...
"Mom, it's Anne. I know I said I wouldn't ask for more money, but I need — we have to go home, but the company won't pay for a shuttle off world. It's Russ. We found this thing... I thought it'd killed him, but it died, it just died, and he says he's fine but something just feels wrong..." — Anne Jorden

"Mom, are you OK? Dad's waiting in the cafeteria." — Rebecca Jorden

"OK, Newt, just a second honey. I'll call you back mom." — Anne Jorden


5. Supply Requisition Order
"This is a formal supply requisition order WY-823, requested by site foreman Joshua Morris. We're gonna need a hell of a lot more research modules, sorry to say — whichever backbirth geologist chose this place as an instillation clearly had their head up up their ass." — Joshua Morris

"I heard that." — Unknown male

"Yeah, yeah. LV-426's structural instability has disabled not two, but three — count 'em, three — separate modules. One broke in half after an earthquake, the other two tumbled down ravines. I mention how much I hate this goddamn place? Should probably edit that out." — Joshua Morris


6. Origin Construction Status Report
"Beginning my weekly update on the construction of Origin Facility. Apart from all the Goddamn research modules we've lost, we're way ahead of schedule, partly because there just ain't as much of the Origin left as we originally believed. It looks like one of the arms broke off before we got here — why'd you say that was again, doc?" — Joshua Morris

"A lava flow detached the arm." — Unknown male

"So, yeah, that. We should have the Origin Facility built within the next two weeks. And lemme tell ya — even without that arm... she's a real looker." — Joshua Morris


7. Evacuation Notice
"Message repeats. We are abandoning the research modules due to increased Xenomorph activity. All personnel need to move into the Origin Facility by tonight. If you ain't in here with us by 0900, we are not coming to save your ass. Message repeats. We are abandoning..." — Joshua Morris


8. Xenomorph Lifecycle Notes
"What follows are my notes on the Xenomorph's observed life cycle. Beginning in the Ovomorph, or 'egg' stage, the creature remains in hibernation until detecting a possible threat. Upon conformation of such a threat, the creature, now having morphed into a sort of arthropod parasitoid form, will exit the egg and attempt to find and implant a suitable host. Implantation occurs through the host's mouth. After the implant is complete — a process taking roughly an hour or so — the parasite dies and the host feels... normal. After a brief incubation period, the fully evolved Xenomorph will... exit the host through the rib cage. The process is fatal to the host." — Dr. Stephen Hale


9. Hale Autopsy Report
"Autopsy report for Dr. David Hale, incubation specialist. Dave — Dr. Hale was implanted by the parasitoid Xenomorph form a day ago following a containment breech. After the parasitoid's expected death, I, against the recommendations of my colleagues, attempted to extract the fetal Xenomorph. My attempt... My attempt failed. Due to the cancerous nature of the Xenomorph's placenta, it appears physically impossible to remove an incubated Xenomorph without killing the host. He did not die quietly... This is Dr. Stephen Hale, singing out." — Dr. Stephen Hale


10. Security Concerns
"This is a foreman Morris, submitting formal requisition for... You know what? Hell with it. I dunno how many times I gotta tell you bureaucratic windbags, but this entire facility is hangin' on by a thin Goddammed thread. The only thing standing between us and those things is a couple thousand volts running through a perimeter fence, but we don't even have a backup generator. That fence goes down, this entire place is gone in a matter of minutes, you understand? I need permission to build at least three more perimeter fences as well as the juice to keep 'em all running. Otherwise, you ain't getting much info out of your beloved Origin before we get turned into walking Goddamned bug wombs!" — Joshua Morris


11. Queen Progress Report
"Preliminary attempts to develop a living Xenomorph Queen have been surprisingly successful. Though her presence has not clued us into any sort of pheremonal control of her children like we initially hoped, she's producing eggs at a regular rate. The tranquillizers we've introduced into her food supply seem to be keeping her docile. Uh, relatively." — Unknown male


12. Origin Status Update
"Quick status update on the derelict ship codenamed Origin. Interior is stable — cross-referencing the ship's current state with reports supplied by y'all, it looks like the Origin has been relatively untouched since the, what was it... USCSS Nostromo encountered it fifty-odd years ago. Hell, even most of the eggs are still intact. If I cared, I'd tell you suits that you're a bunch of exploitative dumbasses who are going to get yourself's, and a lot of innocent people killed. But since my shuttle leaves tomorrow and this little project has got me enough money to buy a small country, I'll just say: Good luck with all of that." — Joshua Morris


Stasis Interrupted

No Title
"Received message from Weyland-Yutani Special Projects Director Burke, Carter J. Message is transcribed as follows: "I don't have a lot of time. The jarheads are checking out the pick-up spot. Look, they're gonna nuke the site. I tried to convince them otherwise, but — look, you need to send a ship now. I've already got a backup plan to get the specimens back to you but, but I can't be sure if..." Female voice heard in the distance. "Hey, company stooge, we're moving. Help me lift Gorman." Burke responds, "Alright, no problem." Message ends." — W-Y radio tech


No Title
"Hello, Mr. Stone. It's me again. After seven unanswered messages I wont be naive to enough to expect a response, but I just want ask you one question. What would they have wanted? Would they have wanted you to stay stuck in your home, drinking booze, living off your welfare checks and trying not to stare at their empty rooms? Or would the want you to get back up and do something with your life? Travel to another colony, meet people? Start over? As always, Mr. Stone, you have my number." — Recruiter


No Title
"Ripley said I should talk to you but you're on the radio so... I'm sorry your face got burned. I didn't like the other soldiers, but you were nice. Thanks for trying to help me. Uh... I cant really think of anything else to say. I'll talk to you more once we wake up." — Newt


No Title
"This is a status update from Bishop 341-B. Prior to their hibernation, I attempted to develop a rapport with the Marines, though my questions about their personal lives have been met with derision. They seem to be particularly fond of physical displays. Private First Class Hudson was extremely pleased with my prowess with a knife. This method of bonding may warrant further investigation." — Bishop


No Title
"Bad news — while attempting to dig a tunnel between the landing pad and the research modules, we broke into what looks like a pretty dammed extensive cave system. This usually wouldn't be much of a problem, but the caves are full of those things, and we don't have the time to drill through, nor the explosives to plug the hole we opened. I requested a few sentry guns and some grunts to watch the hole until we can get a resupply, but for now we just gotta wait. Me? I'll be waiting as far from those damm caves as I can get." — Morris


No Title
"Site foreman Josh Morris here with an update on the tunnel — yeah, it ain't happening. The cave we found..."

"What do you mean 'it isn't happening'? We need this tunnel to transport supplies from the landing pads to the modules." — Aaron

"Well you're not getting it. You're better off walking the supplies around the Origin altogether." — Morris

"Walking? Have you seen the surface of this planet?" — Aaron

"Then jog." — Morris


No Title
"I've set up a tunnel for luring in the Queen, but the plan has some problems: Firstly, we need somebody to lure the Queen to the lift, and as nobody around here's got a powerful desire to die, there's your first snag. Secondly, once we've got the Queen angry, she ain't just gonna run down the tunnel by her lonesome — we're goinna have to deal with a whole horde of the things, and our firepower's already spread thin thanks to the big-ass cave we dug into. I recommend we don't attempt to snag the Queen until we've got at least another dozen gun-hands for defence... or bait." — Morris


No Title
"This containment chamber should fit our needs in developing the Egg production of a Queen specimen. However, the real excitement will come in the exploration of her ability to communicate with and control her progeny. Understanding and developing this bond will be one of our first steps in controlling the Xenomorph Drones." — W-Y geneticist


No Title
"Remember — should the Queen break free of her restraints, hit the suppression button immediately. The C-284 nerve gas integrated into the holding cell should kill the specimen in a matter of seconds. Though Mr. Weyland suggests that we use this as a last resort only, as lead geneticist, I know enough about these creatures to say that if the Queen so much as makes a crack in that glass, you pound that button as fast as you can." — Dr. Miller


No Title
"Dr. Miller, it's come to my attention that you've told the employees to eliminate the Xenomorph Queen at the first sign of trouble. Firstly, I ordered your engineers to replace the nerve gas with the C-95 variant — lethal to humans, of course, but little more than a mild sedative to the Xenomorphs. The Queen is an incredible specimen and I won't let your men exterminate her because you got a little jumpy. Secondly, you're fired. The security force within the lab have already received my order. Goodbye, Dr. Miller." — Weyland
