Thanks

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from CPTSkip
Review:
SWEET! Just frakking sweet. Your story even sort of explains the abomination that was the third movie. Thanks for a great story and I so look forward to the Council recruiting other heroes from around the multiverse. Hint, hint. Lol!

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from CPTSkip
Review:
RAOTFLMAO! Now THAT was a great last line. Yeah, if I had to go through the Gates of Hell I'd really like to have Ripley, Hicks, and Bishop at my back. I really hope there will be more to your story. I think there is going to be the multiverses' greatest catfight when the Slayers sort out who is going to have Ellen for their Watcher.

Andrew's head of course is going to explode the first time Xander calls Warrant Officer Ripley "Ellen". Lol! I'll bet even Faith is going to go all nonverbal when she meets one of the greatest female heroes ever. I so hope there is going to be more to this story. Please? Pretty please with ice cream and Alien blood on top?

I noticed you never mentioned that Joss wrote the original screenplay for the fourth Alien movie before that French director mostly screwed it up. Only one lift on the whole ship and the 'bottom' of the ship is filled with water? No acid proof observation 'glass'? What the frak?
Comments from author:
When I first saw it, I knew that film was going to turn into a whole crock of shit right from the start when the scientists kept the Ripley clone alive for, um, no specific reason, because they really couldn't just say, "If we don't, this movie stops right now in the first two minutes!"

Then, there was the point of the Alien breaking free due to the decades-old cliche of 'the minion tormenting the monster.' People got PAID for coming up with that?

Not to mention the head military guy ordering his troops to allow the slavers into their tightly controlled, extremely secret installation at the exact moment one of their little pets got loose. Now that was a career-builder, at the same level today of the commander of Fort Knox inviting the local branch of the Hells' Angels over for milk and cookies.

Next, the slavers (incidentally, why exactly were we supposed to care about anything bad that happened to them?) met the clone-Ripley, who then showed off her really impressive ability to sink a no-eyes, behind-her-back, basketball shot. That'll scare those monsters, you betcha.

And now comes the obligatory chase scene, with the checking off of those who're gonna get it. The black guy, check. The cripple, check. The first guy to go off on their own, check.

Plus, we have our movie star appearance by Winona Ryder, who at that time actually had huge popularity and fame, which meant she could have gotten away with making script demands. Dammit, we wanted to see her rip apart an Alien with her bare hands while wearing that tight outfit! But, nooooooo. In her role of another android, the best she could come up with was poking her finger into a computer interface to open a door. 'Nona deserved everything in her life that happened to her after that -- getting dumped by Johnny Depp, the shoplifting incident, etc.

Okay, we're coming to the end, the wrecked spaceship heading right towards the Earth. Now, in the future, there's in existence a gigantic military organization that can spend billions of credits or zlotys or cowrie shells to set up a humoungous black research center a few dozen light years away, but they can't come up with, in their own Solar System, a single lifeboat with a dinky popgun to shoot down something the equivalent of a civilian jet plane carrying a dozen rabid tigers covered with anthrax dust on their fur about to collide directly with their home planet?

Afterwards, we have the big boom, and while clone-Ripley and robot-Winona are having their philosophical discussion that ends the film, both totally ignore the gigantic impact crater on the horizon. Hey, not to worry. I'm sure every innocent person directly below that miles-wide circle of flame had enough time to stroll out of the death zone.

Bah.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from valdimarian
Review:
You know, with an accurate gravity map and enough time (against non propelled targets like planets or space stations) you can launch a missile from one side of the galaxy to the other (barring unfortunate asteroids and meteors) and in space, with nothing to slow it down, you can even build the thing up to a speed where the kinetic impact would outclass the payload.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from CPTSkip
Review:
Oh, yeah! A ticked off Bishop is going to be so helpful to whatever nefarious plans Willow has cooked up. Is Xander really going to take down the Company? If so, very cool. If I didn't think things would get terribly out of hand, I would love to see the high command of W-Y introduced to some face-huggers.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from CPTSkip
Review:
Lol! Excellent ending to this update. If and when they go back to Sunnydale, I hope they can bring the ship and its weapons with them. Ellen and Hicks? Good pairing, I hope she says yes. Lol!

Edit: Oops! I knew that. The memory is the second thing to go and I can't remember what the first is.

This is after the Sunnydale Collapse, with the New Council now based in their castle in Scotland.
