Fire and Stone | Comics

A group of researcher from Hadley's Hope on planetoid LV-426 manages to leave everything behind in an attempt to outrun a Xenomorph outbreak. They make a quick escape using an excavating vessel Onager in 2179 and landed on barren moon of LV-223, unknowingly carrying on-board the very death they were desperately trying to evade. One by one, all of them succumb to their hostile surroundings and the genocidal aliens but scientist Derrick Russell was able to make some interesting discoveries before he finally met his fate.

Nearly 40 years after this event, Weyland-Yutani sends some more crews to LV-223 for a salvage mission led by Captain Angela Foster, whose real motive is to find out what actually happened to USCSS Prometheus' crews and Sir Peter Weyland but no one else was aware of that. Astrobiologist Francis Lane also volunteered for this voyage despite having a certain medical condition. Upon landing on the moon's surface, Angela and her crews were taking a tour there and came across a lake of black goo and a pack of mauled animals.

When they stumbled onto a long-deserted ship Onager from Hadley's Hope after exploring the harsh wildlife around them, the crews unknowingly entered inside only for the deadly Aliens residing within to unleash on them. Many of the crews were slaughtered by the horde and some are attacked by Facehuggers. Rest of them ran towards their ship while a wave follows them. Chief security officer Galgo Helder somehow survived from Xeno onslaught and retreats without wasting a single moment with the ship Perses as well as Piper and Higgins, leaving Angela and remaining survivors to their uncertain fate.

Amidst this chaos, Francis and his construct assistant Elden got separated from main group and found a cave, where terra-forming engineer Derrick Russell spent his last days. Finding his research notes on black goo, Francis decides to make an experiment with Elden. Things escalate pretty quickly when Francis tricks his construct aid Elden to be a filter for the accelerant goo, to use it as a cure for his terminal cancer. Torn and turned by betrayal, he allows a waiting group of Aliens into Helios to massacre everyone on-board.

A game-hunting Yauta Clan noticed the presence of Xenomorphs on LV-223 from a nearby star system and follows Perses as it was carrying a number of them that Elden brought on board. Galgo barely manages to escape from the blood feud of these extraterrestrials, unknowingly carrying a Predator on his ship. The Yautja kills all of his crews to secure an Engineer rifle he stole from the crashed derelict ship. Then it forces Galgo to head back to LV-223 for having one ultimate showdown with a vengeful Engineer.
