Welding and cutting of metal can be heard as a circular piece of metal piping falls in on itself.

Bishop put's his hand in and pulls out the piece of metal.

Bishop say's, This conduit runs almost to the up link assembly... 180 meters. Say 40 minutes to crawl down there... 

As Bishop places his electronic equipment inside the tunnel Ripley say's "Right"

Bishop starts to climb into the pipe, He say's, An hour to patch in and align the antenna, 

He continues, Thirty minutes to prep the ship, 

And about 50 minutes flight time, It's gonna be close.

Vasquez picks up a pistol from her left hand side and carries out a quick chamber check before handing it to Bishop, Bishop looks at the weapon for a moment then passes it over to Ripley, I guess not needed.

Ripley say's Good Luck as Vasquez fits the circular metal back over the pipe, Bishop say's See you soon.

Bishops voice starts to echo as he say's Watch your fingers as Vasquez and Ripley fit the piece of metal back down into place.

Bishop turns onto his stomach and starts to shimmy his way down the narrow dark and long tunnel system. The sound of heavy breathing echoes around the pipe system as Bishop slowly inches his way along.

Vasquez say's, Vaya con Dios, man as she starts to weld the metal plate back down for a permanent finish.

The welder creates a loud electrical fizzing as it slowly melts the metal.

The sentry units are really working some overtime, A very loud noise is being generated as the powerful weapons continue there onslaught. Xenomorphs can be heard screeching and exploding as the bullets spray out.

Hicks's says as Ripley and Vasquez come running into the room, This is unbelievable in a fascinated way. He say's, Twenty meters and closing. Fifteen Hicks, say's. Ripley intervenes and say's, How many? as she looks at the display monitors, 

Hicks say's, Can't tell. LOTS!

Hicks say's, "D" guns' down 50%, 

The sentry units are very hot and smoke is bellishing from the metal joints and heavy duty barrels, The sound of xenomorphs screeching in pain echoes all around the corridor.

Hicks say's "C" gun's right behind it.

The bullets continue to explode out as aliens screech and disintegrate on impact.

Hudson say's Stoppin them, This it aint stopping them, 

Hicks say's, 150 rounds on "D", 

Hudson say's, Come on, Come on, baby. Come on!

Hicks say's, Hundred rounds.

Hudson say's, Come on! Come on!

Remote Sentry Weapon System "D" has started to beep and a CRITICAL thick Yellow square is flashing.

Hicks say's, "D" gun's down to 20.

Hicks say's, 10.

Hicks watches as the bullet counter goes to zero, He grabs his weapon and shouts, Damn it.

Ripley is fixed to the display monitors, She say's, Wait! Hicks stops and looks back, Ripley say's They're retreating.

The guns whine and smoke from left to right but all is quiet.

A low beeping sound can be heard, Ripley say's, The guns stopped them.

Hicks is quiet and hesitates before saying, You're right as he looks at the display monitors.

Hicks say's, Next time they walk right up and knock. Referring to there being NO more ammunitions in the corridors.

Ripley replies, Yeah, but they don't know that.

Ripley continues, They're probably looking for other ways to get in. That'll take 'em a while.

Hudson say's, Maybe we got 'em demoralized. Vasquez turns round and tell's Hudson to shut up.

Hicks looks at Hudson and Vasquez, He say's to them, I want you two walking perimeter. 

Hudson and Vasquez are silent, Hicks shouts "Move" as he raises his left hand.

Hicks says, Hey listen.

Hicks continues, We're all in strung out shape. But stay frosty and alert.

Hicks say's, We can't afford to let one of those bastards in here. 

Vasquez say's, All right,... Vamonos, as she softly hits Hudson on the left shoulder. 

Hicks say's, How long's it been since you got any sleep?

Hicks say's to Ripley as an absumption, Twenty four hours?, Ripley is looking slightly down but is not looking at Hicks, She replies quietly, Hicks, I'm not gonna end up like those others. You'll take care of it won't you?. She hesitates then looks up at Hicks in a meaningful way.

Hicks hesitates and then say's quietly, If it comes to that, I'll do us both.

Hicks say's, enthusiastically Listen, let's just make sure it doesn't come to that.

Hicks say's to Ripley in a reassuring way, All right?, Ripley smiles softly and replies quietly, All right as she looks down.

It is very quiet, Hicks say's, Hey, I want to introduce you to a personal friend of mine. Hicks lifts his weapon up to show Ripley.

Hicks continues, This is an M-41 A pulse rifle, 10 millimeter, with an over and under 30 millimeter...Hicks pumps the weapon and say's action,   grenade launcher.

Hicks passes the gun over to Ripley, He say's, Feel the weight. 

Ripley takes the weapon in her hands, She looks down and up then ponders for a moment, Ripley say's as she look up at Hicks, Okay, what do I do?

Bishop is still in the conduct and has maintained a constant speed and pace. It is very quiet in the pipe and only a very low level breeze is heard.

Hicks say's, Okay, pull it in tight here, Ripley replies, Right. Hicks say's Uh huh, Lean into it, Ripley say's, Mm-hmm. Hicks say's, All right, Now, it will clicks in.

All right, When the counter reads zero here, you...Ripley replies, I press this up? Hicks replies, That's right.

Ripley pulls a magazine from the bottom of the weapons magazine catch.

Hicks say's and get another one in quick, Slap it in hard. 

Ripley is learning well, She say's Right, Hicks replies, And you're ready to rock and roll.

Ripley has noticed something else of interest, She say's What's this?, Hicks replies cautiously, That's the grenade launcher.. I don't think you want to mess with that. 

Ripley turns to look at Hicks and say's, You started this, Show me everything.

Ripley say's, I can handle myself. Hicks is amused and say's Yeah, I noticed.

Ripley exits the operations room and comes out onto a corridor, The double electronic doors whine as they open up. Her feet tap as she walks along.

The medlab doors suddenly whirr open and Gorman appears. Ripley say's, How do you feel?, Gorman replies, All right, I guess, One hell of a hangover. Look Ripley, I just want... His words are cut short as Ripley replies sharply forget it. Excuse me Ripley say's to Gorman as she enters the room.

It is very quiet, Ripley presses the open button and the electronic doors whirr open with a sound not to dissimilar to Star Trek, They thud to a stop. The door closes behind with a whirr and a high pitched jet sound.

Ripley slowly walks over to the bed Newt is sleeping in but the bed is empty.

Ripley lifts the sheets back but there is no Newt.

Ripley turns her head all around, She is a little worried but also wonders where she might be.

Ripley then looks down towards the floor, She bends down to see a sleeping Newt who has hid under the bed.

Ripley puts her weapon on top of the mattress and then decides to climb down under the bed to give Newt some comfort and company.

Newt whimpers quietly as Ripley's presence disturbs her slightly. Ripley tries to comfort Newt, She say's Shh. shh, shh, shh, shh, It's Okay, It's Okay as she strokes Newt's hair and gives her a reassuring peck, Ripley then lies motionless.

Bishop has made it to the up link assembly point, A storm is building and there is frequent streaks of lightening. Bishop connects a thick cable from his portable terminal to the up link assembly network equipment. 

Bishop starts to programme commands into the device, 

A parabolic satellite dish starts to move around and then lock into place.

Bishop looks up then completes a few more strokes on the keyboard before he presses the White Enable button.

The drop ship support carrier suddenly comes alive and starts to slowly turn the second drop ship around.

Bishop continues to programme the portable terminal and after several more key presses he presses the Enable button for a second time.

The drop ship starts to move forward and the engines increase in volume as the ship prepares to leave the Sulaco from the airlock doors.

Ripley and Newt are sleeping when Ripley suddenly awakes.

Ripley looks at her watch to see what time it is.

Ripley settles back down but starts to look out onto the floor of the medlab.

She notices that some medical lab plastic flasks have fallen onto the floor.

Ripley looks out and can see that some flasks have been knocked onto the floor. One of the flasks is rocking slightly and Ripley realizes that this has just happened.

Ripley starts to alert Newt that something is not right, She whispers, Newt, Newt, wake up.

Newt awakens and say's Wha but her words are cut short as Ripley say's, Be quiet.

Ripley say's to Newt, We're in trouble.

Ripley reaches her hand up on to the top of the bed.

Ripley looks around to see what she can see,

Suddenly a face hugger strikes leaping from a side table straight onto Ripley.

The face hugger misses Ripley as she ducts back down under the bed, She screams ughh as the face hugger tries to attach to her. 

Newt screams loudly.

Ripley shouts Move, Newt! as the face hugger continues it's attack, A sound of whipping tails is heard.

Newt has escaped a little from the bed and is on her feet, Ripley manages to get out from under the bed and as soon as she does she picks the bed up by it's frame and throws it back upside down.

The bed frame clatters as it goes over, This gives Ripley and Newt a small amount of time to decide what to do next.

Newt and Ripley run to the exit doorway and Ripley presses the open button but nothing is happening.

The organism escapes from the bed and scatters across the floor.

Ripley is still frantically pressing the open button to the door. 

Both Newt and Ripley try to push open the exit door. They can be heard straining and pushing with all there might.

Both Ripley and Newt start to bang on the extra tough and sound proof glass window. They shout, Hey! Hey! to try and attract some attention.

From outside of the room not a sound is heard as the glass panels are completely sound proof and there efforts are in vain. Newt shouts Help! but her voice can not be heard.

Ripley notices her weapon has been placed on a table outside of the room, Earlier she had left it on top of the bed. Now she has realized that someone is responsible for this situation.

Newt frantically taps on the glass, She shouts, Help! Help! as loud as she can.

Somebody help Newt shouts, Ripley starts to wave with her hands, She shouts Hicks into the camera to try and attract someone's attention.

There is no sound on the monitor display system only an image of a frantic Ripley, Hicks can be heard talking, He say's, Say again, Bishop, You've got it into auto-refuel mode, and it's sequencing right?.

Bishop replies on the radio, That's right. Hicks replies, Okay good, Stay on it.

Bishop replies, I'm clearing the craft?, Hicks say's Get back to me when you've activated the launch cycle. Burke is watching Ripley on the monitor but does nothing except turn off the display.

Bishop replies, Roger!, Hicks say's to Gorman and Burke, He's at the up link tower.

Gorman replies, Good, and Burke say's Terrific.

Ripley is frantically screaming and shouting at the camera lens,  Ripley shouts, Hicks! Hicks! Hicks!, Newt shouts, Help!

Hicks Help us Ripley shouts as she waves frantically, Newt shouts Help! Help! to no avail.

Newt starts to bang the glass over and over and shouts to Ripley, Break the glass! Break it, Break it. Ripley listens to Newts words and say's Yes, I'll try as she comes over to Newt.

Ripley picks up a metal chair that is lying close to the window, She swings with all her might at the window but the chair just bounces back.

She swings again but the chair still just bounces back, There is a silent wobble of the window as the chair hits it hard but no sound is made from outside of the room.

Ripley tries for a third time and makes a loud ughh sound as she tries giving her best shot, Incredibly the glass does not break even after three strikes. Only small abrasions can be seen in the glass from the metal chair. Ripley gives up on this idea and slams the chair to the ground knocking some plastic medical equipment to the floor as she does.

A scurrying can be heard but the alien organism can not be seen.

A clinking is then heard as quite clearly the face hugger is very close.

All is quiet except for the odd noise of medical equipment, Newt say's, Ripley, I'm scared.

Ripley say's to Newt in a loud whisper, Me too.

Ripley is looking around and then say's to Newt in a whisper, Stay here.

Ripley takes a few steps and then pulls out her gas filled lighter from her right side pocket. She reaches up towards a sprinkler system heat detector.

Ripley holds the flame for a few seconds under the heat sensor.

Suddenly the sprinkler system leaps into life, Water starts to spray down all over the room as an alarm siren rings out. The lights turn off and are replaced by some emergency red lamps instead.
