This Aliens fan film is remarkably light on actual Xenomorphs and doesn’t really fit into the official Aliens timeline, but it’s a very cinematic experience with high production values and superb acting. Newt deserved much better than being unceremoniously bumped off before the third Alien movie. This fan film not only gives Newt a little closure but also gives you an even greater appreciation for Bishop as he still tries to protect Newt from things that can harm her (emotionally rather than physically this time). If you can get past the fact that there are no Aliens in it and that it doesn’t quite tie in with the ending of Aliens then you’ll find a lot to like in this powerful and emotional tribute to two great Aliens characters.

1. That is NOT LV-426
2. That spaceship does not belong in the Aliens universe. It's straight outta Star Wars, and needs to go back there.
3. That's not Bishop, and Newt wouldn't go to Bishop for information about her family, because Bishop never actually met her family.
And I'm going to stop there, because I can't watch any more.
I wouldn't complain about these things, but this is ostensibly a "fan" film, and things like planet and mecha accuracy are, you know, IMPORTANT to actual fans.
The premise is flawed from the get-go though, because Newt knows what happened to her parents - it happened in front of her, and it didn't happen like this. There's a Director's cut of Aliens - I suggest you watch it before you make a fan film.
The production values are high, and the acting's pretty good from what I watched. Clearly a lot of work went into this, and I'm impressed by that. I hope all involved get more work in the film industry, or at least go on to produce original work.
Original work. Because this isn't fan work. Want to ignore every movie/other media after Aliens? No worries- I'm with you on that. Everything after Aliens basically sucked.
But you can't ignore Aliens when you're making a fan film about a character from Aliens. The world they're in (including how interstellar travel works and what specific star systems look like) is important. If you're going to ignore it, then take your story, rename the characters, and make it an original piece...
Because this isn't an Aliens fan film. As an Aliens fan film, it fails to the point of being offensive, because the creators don't care about the lore.
As a stand alone science fiction story that uses certain borrowed themes from the Alien franchise? It's pretty great.
Not bad if u ignore the whole alien franchise
