The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I've been working on this off and on for many many years....maybe 10 or more. Finally have it to a point where I might be finished with it. I made this with the idea in mind of what you might find on a WY office desk. It contains various print-outs, photos and reports regarding the events following up to and during ALIENS. The one part I CANNOT take credit for, is the WY personnel report you see with the orange sticky note on it in the lower right-hand corner. I believe someone here made that, I printed it off to help fill the folder.

Items of interest:
-John Marachek autopsy report
-oversized photo of approach to Lv 426 solar system
-various glossy photos that colonists took of the inside of the derelict ship and it's contents
-directive from Carter J. Burke to M. Simpson
-Narcussus lifeboat analysis report
AND MUCH MUCH MORE!

If you make that a nice color PDF I will gladly add it to my convention table book as a stand alone folder.

Cover of the folder, pretty simple. The folder itself is made out of a clear plastic material....perfect for space-like office settings. :)

knoxvillejoker, I don't know, trying to make all these files jive with PDF would probably drive me crazy. Just trying to get print-outs of each item was a trial unto itself.

That looks really cool DSB!

Makes me think of the prop paperwork that Mike Rush created for the 'Alien Encounter' experience at the National Space Centre events a while back.

You could do a run of these and make a few quid I reckon.

Great work :)

Wonderful work. It makes me smile because I along with others drafted up similar things back in 2011 for a project, though yours are 'finished'. Unfortunately I had to pull out as at the time I had relocated and was very busy looking for work. I think that project eventually became the 'Weyland Yutani Report'. I have similar sheets set up for the derelict and space jockey in the Alien: The Blueprints project (similar but different approach). I like seeing work like you've done here as it's an interesting side-approach to the events in the movies - and it's faithful to it without going off on a tangent. Great job.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. :) I had thought of making copies and selling them, but the problem is once you do that, you run the risk of someone out there making and selling copies themselves.

Space Jockey, I'd love to hear more about what you worked on and how that all came about.

Please a watermark hidden in the pictures and make a condition of sale that it shall not be copied.

"Medical report on facehugger victim Marachuk, John J."

I thought his last name was spelled "Marachek"?
