Re: The venom spiked tail problem.

Not sure but i don't think so.  There wasn't really any place in the Alien novel to address a venom spiked tail.  I don't think it's ever mentioned that it has a tail in the Alien novel.  Alan Dean Foster is pretty non-specific when describing the creatures in that book and some descriptions point t...

Re: The venom spiked tail problem.

An Alien broke in during the escape.  This was the original script for the sequence. INT./EXT. APC    104-     105    Something lands on the roof with a metallic clang.    Gorman has plastered himself against a wall, as far    from the door as possible.  A latch lever behind his    head turns.  The ...

I believe Event Horizon did a decent job of portraying decompression with Justin in the airlock.

Re: The venom spiked tail problem.

Cameron invented the tail stinger for Aliens.  Gorman was originally stung by an Alien tail instead of getting bonked on the head with some boxes.

It was absent from River of Pain where the Aliens vomited goop in the faces of victims which knocked them out.

Re: What date is Hopes Last Day set?

I don't imagine a starved and dehydrated host would be a preference.
I don’t have my copy to hand, but is that date actually listed in Fire and Stone?
Yep.  First words on issue 1.

Re: Stellar type data - real world - near stars

I have no idea about anything you just said.

A map shows you where stuff is; not sure how it describes what to do.  More how to get there.

But maybe it's because I haven't RPGed in at least 25 years that 'I'm not interested in what Alien is about'...

Re: What date is Hopes Last Day set?

Fire & Stone had survivors leaving on July 3 and landing on LV-223 (though as a crossover into AvP that wasn't regarded as canonical).  River of Pain had four survivors departing in an escape ship on June 25 (the original Dr Komiskey being abducted by the Aliens a couple of days earlier). The film h...

Re: Stellar type data - real world - near stars

Given the circumstances, surviving is the best career path.  ;)

Not sure how the starmap describes what to do.

Re: What date is Hopes Last Day set?

Sounds like around July the 5th. Aliens dates are here  https://alientimeline.wordpress.com/2127-2179/  (s croll down to June 2179). River of Pain details  https://alientimeline.wordpress.com/2127-2179/river-of-pain/ It looks like this rewrites RoP, but wierdly changes Komiskey into another characte...
