The Alien campaign begins in a Temple dedicated to the Xenomorphs. The USCM are on the scene, establishing a provisional research & extraction camp. The Temple's lower Levels are USCM-secured, the upper ones still xenomorph-controlled.
A single xenomorph managed to breach through the first USCM perimeter, killing many soldiers & scientists. It finally activates some kind of security system within the temple in order to cut off the USCM's access to the upper levels and the main hive. (Mission 1)
After that, the Xenomorph raid the human camp to recover stolen eggs and wipe out the human presence. As the USCM's position and their collected specimens are compromised, they order to evacuate immediately.
One Xenomorph infiltrates the cargo-shuttle thats picking up a last load of eggs before the area is completely overrun.(Mission 2)
The shuttle heads for the 'Ferarco', a heavy military cargoship. The Xenomorph uses the airvents to kill everyone on board. The captain tries to escape in a Lockmart-Starcub shuttle, but he is too slow. He gets killed as the shuttle is ready for takeoff. The Xenomorph causes critical damage to the ship's MOTHER-system, provoking a critical system malfunction which is going to destroy the whole vessel. (Or maybe the captain activated the self-destruction sequence before, would be more reasonable). Before everything blows up, the Xenomorph enters the shuttle. The shuttle launch by autopilot just before the ship detonates. According to standard emergency protocol, the ship targets for earth. (Mission 3)
The Shuttle reaches Earth sector, autopiloted for the Gateway-Station, R&D security tower. Once landed, the landing bay's surveillance detects the xenomorph immediately. For immediate containment, the landing bay airlock is opened. But the Xenomorph was faster, escaping through the vents once more... The Xeno slays its way through the whole R&D tower, breaching through all quarantine systems. It gets out of the R&D tower into the main gateways station tower C ("Tower C" is devised), panic occurs among the civil inhabitants (Mission 4).
As the situation is out of control, evacuation orders are given in order to dissever Tower C (that's preconceived, but i guess the gateway towers can be cut-off from each other just like the POD's in AvP2). Two Predators has also arrived- making a lil' hunt, but then get killed by the Xenomorph.
One of the last outbounding shuttles is a WY corporate transporter, which has orders to collect and rescue at least a few xenomorph-eggs before Tower C is entirely lost (that adumbrates Tower C is a WY-reloading point, which makes sense due to its connection to the R&D-quarantaine tower). The Xenomorph, what else, get onboard, kills everyone on the way to earth. A Xeno and a few eggs are going to make holidays on earth, just great... :-)
OK that's the main story (or my opinion of it). No timeline at all. Questions:
1) This temple, how do the humans found it?
2) What happened to the temple after the USCM's first camp was destroyed?
3)In which span of time these events taking place, and in which year at all?
4) How do the preds are fit in this?
5) What happened after the alien arrived on earth?
6) 'rarity': IMO Aliens have to be rare in the end to keep their mystery. That means any specimens/eggs/etc. should be disappeared before the story is complete- otherwise, the story wouldn't fit with any other sources like movies and games. I mean, why should WY try to get their hands on some xenos all the time if they still posses em'?
That's some of the questions. You are free to post your suggestions. Btw., this is just for fun, i hope to arse around about such stuff makes you guys and gals as much fun as it does to me :-)
