Challenged to retrieve a fallen star, Tristran Thorn leaves the sleepy English village of Wall and crosses into the land of Faerie and the realm of Stormhold. Locating the star, he discovers it is no meteorite but a young woman, Yvaine. When Yvaine evades him and escapes, Tristran discovers he is not the only one in pursuit of the star: there are dark forces in this magical land, and he must find Yvaine before she falls into their clutches.

Ellen Ripley finally returns to Earth, only to discover that LV-426 — where the crew of the Nostromo first came into contact with the deadly xenomorphs — has been renamed Acheron. Protected by Colonial Marines, the colonists seek to terraform the storm-swept planet against all the odds. But in the face of brutal living conditions and the daily struggles of a new world, there is humanity and hope.

If you've seen Aliens you know the fate of Hadley's Hope already. But that doesn't stop you being drawn into this brilliant tale, leaving you hoping that somehow there's another fate for the colonists. With scripted content from Aliens intermixed with this original story it's a truly worthwhile listen and highly recommended.

Ian Holm excels as Frodo, rather than Bilbo in this earlier version of The Lord of the Rings.
