After the USS Sulaco left LV426 in the film Aliens and approached Fiorina 'Fury' 161 as in the film Alien 3, the Sulaco was boarded by W-Y PMCs and in a fire fight Hicks was released and Turk was put it instead and jettisoned with the remaining crew in an EEV, the Sulaco returned around LV426 followed later by Stone and Hicks.
A forward board party arrive aboard the Sulaco after the umbilicals are attached and reconn the spacecraft.
Distress is the start for Winter and the other marines aboard the Sephora. Winter starts in an airlock, negotiating the umbilical as he boards.
Corporal Christopher Winter joins the squad of Actual under command by Cruz who have already boarded and are reconning the spacecraft. After an explosion which was felt around the two spacecraft, Winter enters the USS Sulaco to find members of O'Neal's Actual squad injured by the blast. Even though Paluski is injured he is later in the Cargo Bay with Winter and O'Neal helping defend Keyes as he accesses the controls of the Cargo Bay doors and O'Reilly, Tolentino, Tanaka, Romerio and Hernandez are returned aboard the Sephora.
After Winter heads for Life Support and finds Keyes cocooned, releasing him they both go after the flight recorder and then return to the Cargo Bay and group up with O'Neal and Paluski and battle the Aliens defending the Cargo Bay, as they clear it and escape Paluski and Keyes die as the umbilical is destroyed, O'Neal saves Winter and they find a different route to a Cargo Bay as Reid lands a UD4L Cheyenne to finish the level but as the doors are sealed, Winter and O'Neal must find a different route.
