After landing on the planet, three crew members (Captain Dallas, Lambert and Kane), leave the ship to explore the area and find the source of the signal. Meanwhile the Nostromo's mainframe "Mother" deciphers the message to be a warning, not a distress call. However, it's too late to stop the away team as they have arrived at the source of the signal - a massive derelict alien spacecraft. Inside they find a sole alien corpse, thousands of years dead, and a cargo hold full of leathery egg-like structures. When Kane disturbs one of the eggs it opens and an organism attaches itself to Kane's face, immobilizing him.
