First edition.
When an industrial spy steals a Xenomorph egg, former Colonial Marine Zula Hendricks must prevent an alien from killing everyone on an isolated colony planet. Venture, a direct rival to the Weyland-Yutani corporation, will accept any risk to crush the competition. Thus, when a corporate spy "acquires" a bizarre, leathery egg from a hijacked vessel, she takes it directly to the Venture testing facility on Jericho 3. Though unaware of the danger it poses, the scientists there recognize their prize's immeasurable value. Early tests reveal little, however, and they come to an inevitable conclusion. They need a human test subject... ENTER ZULA HENDRICKS A member of the Jericho 3 security staff, Colonial Marines veteran Zula Hendricks has been tasked with training personnel to deal with anything the treacherous planet can throw their way. Yet nothing can prepare them for the horror that appears--a creature more hideous than any Zula has encountered before. Unless stopped, it will kill every human being on the planet.

display_description"When an industrial spy steals a Xenomorph egg, former Colonial Marine Zula Hendricks must prevent an alien from killing everyone on an isolated colony planet. Tamar Prather is a spy for Venture, a company in direct competition with the Weyland-Yutani Corporation. When Prather steals a Xenomorph egg from a Weyland-Yutani vessel, she takes it to the Venture proto-colony on Jericho 3. Though unaware of the danger the egg poses, the scientists there realize how important it is to their rivals, and seek to use it to gain an edge over the competition. Zula Hendricks--former Colonial Marine and teammate to Amanda Ripley--learns about the stolen egg and infiltrates Venture as a member of their security team. But Zula is a member of the underground resistance that opposes Weyland-Yutani, and is eager to stay under their radar. When Venture resorts to a human test subject, allowing him to be impregnated by the Alien, Zula and scientist Dan McClaren must stop the resulting Xenomorph before it can escape and kill every human being on Jericho 3."--Provided by publisher.
