It has been five years since both failed attempts were sent to Acheron. Five members of the team survived and were farmed out to different units as the Easy Eights were refilled and outfitted for other missions. These five survivors were forcibly recommended to sign off on Confidentiality Agreements. They were to never speak of what they had witnessed on that inhospitable planet.
During the five ensuing years rumors began to circulate concerning the wholesale disappearance of colonies on small backwater planets. At the request of several High Ranking officials among the big five Corporations:
- BIO-NATIONAL INTERNATIONAL “BIO-NAT” - the largest medical conglomerate around.
GRANTCORP - Daniel Grant’s Corporation started his childhood dream in his basement when Weyland Yutani was controlling the spacelanes. As he acquired mining rights and medical grants, he and his staff developed advanced technologies that were more than just effective, they were cheap. GrantCorp offered low-grade alternatives to the huge marked-up products of larger corporations that cornered the market in their field.
WEYLAND - YUTANI (“The Company”) - A joint stock corporation that works closely with world governments in the areas of space exploration, commerce, colonization, and military trading.
HYPERDYNE SYSTEMS - Once the largest corporations around until Weyland Yutani sprouted.
CENTRAL SPACE CONSORTIUM “C.S.C.” - A baker's dozen of corporations felt the tight arm of their huge brethren clenching tightly. Large conglomerates covered many fields but these small corporates specified their areas.
On Board the USS Heimlich, a small craft dreamed up by the joint committee of the big five. The Devil Dawgs were awaking to life in the fast lanes, the Heimlich would function as their Dropship and Interstellar vessel. The unit was sitting around their briefing table as Gunner Eagle explained the scenario for them.
"Okay boys and girls, it seems that some group within their infinite wisdom decided to take one of those bugs that we have all encountered in our careers to study. Bio-Nat has called on us to head over to their secret laboratory on a satellite orbiting Helix in the New Eden Sector. These smart men and women took a queen in and allowed her to breed. It seems their security measures worked a little to well for them. One of the Xenomorphs breeched their holding cell and the entire system shut down tighter than a virgin on her first date. It is our job to get in and contain the breech with as little damage as possible. Our orders are to kill all the drones and warriors of the queen but keep her highness alive. Last count has there being some 15-25 drones and 1 or more queens." James stopped and looked around the table allowing the information to settle. "Do we have any questions? If not go get your gear together we will be docking with the satellite in 30 minutes!"
