Well not me then :-) Like I say I'm pretty sure there was a reminder right near the beginning.

The first thing that came to my mind when colonists started to disappear was, check the damn PDTs!  It was kind of frustrating that a whole colony didn't clue in until later.

I guess it would depend on how regularly they have to use them on a day-to-day basis. If they frequently have to locate people by their PDTs, yeah, forgetting about them in this situation is pretty dumb. If they literally never use them and they're just some over-the-top health and safety thing, it's not so far-fetched that everyone forgot about them.

It's mentioned fairly early on that they are used to track "Wildcatters" who go off and explore. Tbh I can get in the stress of an Alien attack which mainly takes place over 12 hours they could be forgotten, for some time, or at least being able to get to the right place, set up whatever they need etc could be impractical.

If they had used them sooner it wouldn't have made a difference.

It caused a facepalm on my behalf. It was just the blasé way it was handled.

Thought about picking this up today because I was looking for a science fiction book to read now that I'm on break from school. Is there some action in this novel? The whole background of LV-426 interest me a lot, and I did read a small section of Newt and her father with the whole

The three books I had in mind were Halo: Fall of Reach, Star Wars The Old Republic: Revan, and this.  Aliens: No exit seems to have a cool plot.

Alien: No Exit really becomes a let-down in the final third.

No Exit started really well. It was this story of a psychologically damaged detective hunting down Aliens. It started so well and was really interesting but then the second half descended into an over-blown Aliens-esque book in which a dude beats up an Alien. Really disappointed me.



Anyway! I've just uploaded my own review of the book onto the website.
