The Weyland-Yutani facility on LV-742 was established to conduct Top-Secret weapon's development research and exploit the resources on the planet... shortly after establishing the facility, ancient ruins were discovered all over the region.
It wasn't long before Weyland-Yuntai's research into Xenomorphs resulted in disaster. In all of his hubris, man believes himself to be an all-controlling God...
Weyland-Yutani Personnel could not maintain quarantine of the facility...
...the first Xenomorph escapes onto LV-742 through an atmosphere processing pipe!
The creature scans it's surroundings, looking for the next unsuspecting victim...
United States Colonial Marine Operations Command (USCMOC) located at Camp Lejeune is made aware of the dire situation on LV-742. A distress call is made by the surviving Weyland-Yutani personnel at the research facility. The call for help is responded by sending the USS. Valkyrie, a Bougainville-class attack transport with a full regiment of USCM marines.
Meanwhile, half the galaxy away...
Kalakta, the supreme leader of Yautja Prime awaits a petition from an Elder seeking hunting rights.
Elder Dhi'rauta approaches Kalakta with a bow of the head and extending forth a hand in greeting.
Dhi'rauta paces as he speaks. <"Exalted One, I seek hunting rights to an ooman (human) planet. They breed the r'ka (Xenomorphs) on it's surface. Much glory, many trophies!"> Shaman Yin'tekai listens intently, acting as religious advisor to all Yautja. Also council to both Dhi'rauta and Kalakta.
Kalakta cocks his head and lifts a hand before speaking. <"Dhi'rauta, old friend. What warriors will you bring to the hunt?"> Dhi'rauta lifts a hand to indicate speech once again. <"These finest warriors will bring much glory.">
Dhi'rauta's clan mates step forward at attention to Kalakta.
Many look upon Kalakta for the very first time. Tales of his Glory permeate through all of Yautja society. The Elite warriors are asked to come forward from the Young Bloods.
Upon approaching, both Gahn'tha-cte and Bhu'ja clasp a fist across their chest. Dhi'rauta states proudly: <"These are among the finest warriors in my Clan. They will lead the hunting party against the oomans and the r'ka." Kalakta's mandibles click in approval. "See to it that these warriors instruct the Youngbloods. The hunting petition is granted. Yin'tekai will also accompany your hunting party. Bring many trophies and glory to your clan!"> Dhi'rauta addresses Kalakta and chuckles. <"I would have it no other way.">
The Yautja mothership carrying the "New" Lost Clan arrives in the same system as LV-742. While scanning the planet, the ship remains undetected.
The ship-board systems detect an anomaly in orbit above the planet.
The scan reveals a human ship....!
