The crew of the Nostromo ore transporter wakes up, believing they are arriving close to the solar system. Instead, they were woken up to respond to a distress signal from a nearby planet. A team crash-lands near a large alien spaceship. As part of the team repairs the shuttle, others go out and discover the long-dead body of a creature with a hole in its torso. Analyzing the signal, Ripley concludes it's a warning to stay away, not a distress signal. One member, Kane, discovers a chamber containing hundreds of eggs and as one of them opens, a spider-like creature jumps out and attaches to his face, through his helmet. When the shuttle flies back to Nostromo, Ripley insists Kane's body remains in quarantine, but science officer Ash decides to let him in the infirmary, where he tries to remove the creature from Kane's face by cutting one of its legs. The creature's blood is very corrosive and manages to drip through several floors. The creature eventually detaches itself and Kane regains conciousness, but a few hours later he dies as another creature jumps out of his chest. The crew starts hunting the creature, but, having quickly become full-grown, it kills first Brett, and then Captain Dallas who was following it in an air duct. Having to assume command, Ripley learns from Mother, the board computer, that Ash has secretly been ordered by the Company to bring alien creatures back to Earth and that the crew is expendable. She confronts Ash, who tries to kill her, but with the help of Parker they manage to kill him out and discover he's an android. Upon reactivating its head, Ash indicates the alien cannot be killed. The remaining crew decides to self-destruct the Nostromo and to escape in the shuttle. Parker and Lambert are ambushed and killed by the creature, so Ripley initiates self-destruct, and despite the alien initially blocking her way to the shuttle and a failed attempt to cancel the self-destruct, she manages to escape just in time. As she prepares for stasis, she notices the alien is hiding in the shuttle; she puts on a space suit and flushes it out of the airlock. She then prepares for the trip back to Earth.
