This is becoming increasingly interesting.

I thought the bulk of the story in Labyrinth was disappointingly generic, but there's no denying that hive flashback is the single greatest thing to come out of the EU.

QuoteAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as motor neurone disease (MND) and Lou Gehrig's disease, is a specific disease that causes the death of neurons which control voluntary muscles.[5][3][10] Some also use the term motor neuron disease for a group of conditions of which ALS is the most common.[2] ALS is characterized by stiff muscles, muscle twitching, and gradually worsening weakness due to muscles decreasing in size.[2] This results in difficulty speaking, swallowing, and eventually breathing.[3][2]

Thanks Hicks.

This is what Steven Hawking has.

QuoteA dramatic new Alien novel, as Weyland-Yutani seeks to recover from the failure of Hadley's Hope, and successfully weaponize the Xenomorphs.

With the failure of the Hadley's Hope, Weyland-Yutani has suffered a devastating defeat—the loss of the Aliens. Yet there's a reason the company rose to the top, and they have a redundancy already in place. Remote station RB-323 abruptly becomes their greatest hope for weaponizing the Xenomorph, but there's a spy aboard—someone who doesn't necessarily act in the company's best interests. If discovered, this person may have no choice but to destroy RB-323...and everyone on board. That is, if the Xenomorphs don't do the job first.

It's why everyone was dumping buckets of icy water on their heads a couple of years back.

Hmmm...I wonder if this is going to be following on from River of Pain in terms of Hadley's Hope being deliberately there to follow up on the Nostromo mystery?

HuDaFuK

I never really liked the idea of Wey-Yu establishing Hadley's Hope intentionally to find Aliens; the way the film presented it may have been a big coincidence, but I thought it played far better. That said, if it does link into River of Pain, it'll be nice seeing the books tying into each other like that.

Ultramorph

Well, that answers when this is set. I'm really looking forward to this.

Nostromo

Sounds like a cool story

Russ840

This is sounding interesting.

Ill Echo Huda's thoughts on Hadley's being a deliberate attempt to follow up on the Nostromo. I prefer that it's a coincidence. Although a big one at that
