Nostromo departs planetoid.


04 Jun 2122: After approximately 20 hours on LV-426, the Nostromo takes off again, by which time the facehugger has detached from Kane. Shortly after setting course for Earth, Kane wakens. During a final meal before returning to hypersleep, the embryo inside Kane hatches, killing him. The hatchling (‘chestburster’) grows to over 7 feet tall in about 2 hours and kills Engineer’s Mate Brett, during a search for the creature. >>>About 30 minutes later, Captain Dallas is taken by the Alien while trying to force it through the ship’s ducts towards the airlock. >>>Warrant Officer Ripley discovers that Weyland-Yutani want the Alien specimen and the crew of the Nostromo are expendable. It is revealed Science Officer Ash is in fact a Hyperdyne Systems 120-A/2 android, who has been protecting the Alien. Chief Engineer Parker renders Ash inoperative when Ash attacks Ripley. >>>Parker and Lambert are killed by the Alien whilst evacuating the Nostromo. Ripley rigs the ship to self-destruct and escapes on the shuttlecraft Narcissus with the ship’s cat Mr. Jones. The Alien also escapes on the shuttle, but Ripley manages to blow it out of the airlock, effectively killing it. REF: TIMELINES 2090.
