Upon discovering an Alien hive nearby, they were at war with the Xenomorphs which turned into a total massacre of Hicks’ crews. Ten years after the horror, a grown up Newt is now mentally unstable and Hicks has still grief stricken over the event. Following the occurrence of a similar incident in deep space on the salvage crew, the marines are called in along with Hicks to assist them as well as collect a few eggs for them and destroy their home world.

As they travels towards LV-426, which is now called Acheron, it appears that back in Earth, the Bionational Corp somehow gotten their hands onto an Alien Queen and their scientists have started to experiment on living test-subjects to study and gather more specimens.

Meanwhile, a spiritual cult decides to unleash the Aliens on earth by willingly becoming their host as they believe the Xenomorphs to be some form of messiahs.
