Now facing Lambert, the Alien rises to it's full height.
PARKER: Get out of the way, Lambert!
RIPLEY: Parker? . . . Lambert . . Lambert?
No way to use the flamethrower without killing Lambert, Parker charges the creature.
The Alien quickly turns and delivers a severe blow with it's tail on Parker.
Bleeding from his wounds, Parker is pinned by the creature.
The Alien flashes it's metal teeth, set to strike. Ripley listening on the communicator, grabs the flamethrower and the cat carrier and races to Parker and Lambert.
Parker in agony, sees the creature extend it's inner jaw. The Alien's inner jaw ejects like a bullet into Parker. Parker screams. Blood and flesh erupt.
The creature turns it's attention to Lambert.
Lambert sobbing uncontrollably and still frozen in fear, the Alien guides it's tail towards her.
Ripley still scrambling to get to them, can hear everything over the communicator. Lambert's dying shrieks. Then abrupt silence. Ripley reaches their location . . .
She waits for a response. But her expression shows that she expects none. A long moment.
Nightmare without end. Sees carnage. Ripley gasps for breath. Regains control of herself.
INT. ENGINE ROOM - CUBICLE: Ripley enters the power center. Approaches the main control board and pulls levers to unlock the Emergency Destruction System compartment.
Ripley activating the switches, one by one. Sirens begin to honk. Mother speaks.
MOTHER (voice over): Danger. The emergency destruct system is now activated. The ship will detonate in T-minus ten minutes. The option to override automatic detonation expires in T-minus five minutes.
INT. OILY CORRIDOR - "C" LEVEL:> Ripley starts toward Narcissus, carrying the flamethrower and Jones.
MOTHER (voice over): The option to override automatic detonation expires in T-minus three minutes.
Ripley climbs down a ladder to the Undercarriage Room, it's dark and foreboding. She moves further and see a strange alien encrustation forming on the walls and structures.
Then Ripley is startled by a wimpering moan. She turns and is startled by a horrific site. Dallas is covered with the alien encrustation and in obvious pain.
Ripley looks to her left and is shocked again by another ghastly site. Brett is also encased with the alien adhesive, but at more advanced stage..
Ripley turns back to Dallas, he's moaning again.
Dallas: Kill meeeeee. . . . Kill meeeeee!
Ripley steps back, in tears, she know's what she must do.
Ripley triggers her flamethrower, igniting the whole area in flames, giving them a merciful and quick death. . . . She races for the shuttle area.
Ripley makes it to the shuttle area and peeks around the corner into the shuttle entrance . . . . THE ALIEN.
Ripley slinks back slowly. She turns and bolts toward the engine room, leaving Jones in the companionway. Ripley bounds down the companionway. Up the companionway, exhausted, stumbling. A final sprint towards the engine room.
