"Anyway, I don't intend them to actually fight the Xenos. The closest will be an event I plan to play out like a scene in Alien Isolation. They'll hear something and be warned to hide."
Hm, an Alien Isolation-inspired scenario would work fine, with limited scale, on Novgorod station for instance. That could form a short campaign, with a flashback visit to LV-426, cinematic style, and re-using some iconic scenes from the game (which is awesome). Players could be a WY "damage control team" (of course with all different agendas/cover ups etc) sent to secure the log, and end up in the plot of the game.
Anyone already done a "conversion" or care to share some thoughts?
