Some stories often feature the company Weyland-Yutani and the United States Colonial Marines. Originally intended as a sequel to James Cameron's Aliens, the first mini-series features the characters of Rebecca 'Newt' Jorden and Corporal Dwayne Hicks.

Other stories are completely unique to the Alien universe, and are often used to explore other aspects of the species, such as their sociology and biology.
