Bug Stomper was the name of the UD-4L Cheyenne dropship aboard the USS Sulaco. Piloted by Corporal Colette Ferro, it was notably involved in the initial USCM operation on LV-426 in 2179 by the Marines to deploy ground forces to the Hadley's Hope colony. My version of this classic nose dropship artwork from Aliens is very much based on the original in the film, though slightly tweaked to clean up a few oddities.

There's not many places to get a cold beer and something to eat in the Hadley's Hope settlement on LV-426. Ok, there's just one place and that is the Last Exit Bar & Grill, but like any good bar, they have souvenir t-shirts available. This shirt design is a one of the more unique artifacts from the Alien franchise, mainly because the actual bar was never explored on screen, but now you can say that you've been there or at least have people asking...

The mission of Project Prometheus was to seek out the origins of mankind, wherever it may be in space. Weyland Industries believed this voyage would yield extraordinary dividends for its investors; financially and spiritually. The mission was incredible in scope and marked the furthest a human has ever ventured into our universe. The Project Prometheus tee is designed much like a modern mission patch including key points about the voyage along with a striking illustration of the ship itself.

Name and registration number of the USS Sulaco, from Aliens, as seen on the side of the filming miniature. I recommend a darker, but not black, shirt for this art. The original Sulaco was a dark blue-gray color.

The United States Colonial Marine Corps (USCM), commonly known as the Colonial Marines, is the United Americas' primary "force-in-readiness", founded in 2101. They specialize in force projection, being able to operate independently in environments far from home for extended periods thanks to their technological prowess and sizable space fleet at their disposal. The USCM is the successor to the United States Marine Corps and are at permanent readiness for immediate deployment across human-controlled space without any additional reinforcement, training or provisioning. The Colonial Marines, along with the United States Army, are part of the United Americas Allied Command. The primary duties of the Colonial Marine Corps are to maintain security for all United Americas signatories and at all extraterrestrial colonies that fall under United States of America's control, and serve as the vanguard of any major combat operation. They have fought on more than two dozen worlds, including Tientsin (8 Eta Bootis A III), Helene 215, Linna 349, BG-386, LV-1201, LV-742, and the infamous Acheron (LV-426).

57 years since the Nostromo incident and even a military grade, state-of-the-art motion tracker still has no Z axis. But that's okay, you've got a machine gun that fires explosive tipped projectiles... for an enemy that bleeds acid. Uh-oh...

Weyland-Yutani is a large conglomerate corporation known as "The Company." It is one of the corporations that runs the human colonies outside the solar system through the Extrasolar Colonization Administration, has a seat in the Interstellar Commerce Commission's Company Review Board, and also has a large presence on Earth. They hold their main offices in Tokyo, San Francisco, The Sea of Tranquility, and Thedeus. Weyland-Yutani consistently exhibits the worst aspects of corporate profiteering, willing to sacrifice decency and human life in seemingly the pursuit of profit. The corporation has consistently ordered its employees and agents to attempt to obtain living Xenomorphs so that they can be exploited as a biological weapon, without regard for their obtainers' lives.
