Q
Let us know what you think after you read it. :)

A tad off-topic, but I'm going through the rule book now and really enjoying it. Not sure how well it fits with the films but I like the world it's building. Got a kick out of finding Pandora and Arcturus in the star map :)

Now that you found it on the map, could you please point me in the right direction towards some Arcturian Poontang?  :P

I'm curious about Pandora, has it had any significance in the Alien franchise? I don't remember hearing about a planet called Pandora.

That's exactly my point - this book was released some 18 years before Avatar, so the fact it talks about a colonised planet named Pandora is a neat coincidence :)

Doubt it's ever appeared outside of this book/game.

I also got reminded of Pandora from Avatar so it's a nice coincidence.

As an aside one of Saturn's moons is called Pandora, discovered in 1980 and named in 1985.  Also named in 1985 was Prometheus.

I've read it. About a third of the stories do not deal with Aliens.

There's an amusing story devoted to how the Marine Pulse Rifle was created.
