InteractionsEdit

As they arrive Ellen Ripley kills herself by jumping into molten lead and failing to obtain the Xenomorph specimen Michael Bishop leaves the planet bringing along Fiorina 'Fury' 161 prison's sole survivor Robert Morse for relocation.

ContinuityEdit

Aliens: Colonial Marines
Michael Bishop appears in the game Aliens: Colonial Marines aboard a W-Y FTL on LV426 after having returned from Fiorina 'Fury' 161. Aliens: Colonial Marines is a continuing story from the film Aliens and takes a slightly different line as in the films, this includes Hicks being removed from the Sulaco and the Sulaco returned around LV426 by Weyland Personnel, a story similiar to early drafts of the film Alien 3. The fire aboard the Sulaco is explained by the boarding of Weyland Personnel, from here a fire fight between them and the Aliens aboard the Sulaco occurs.

Alien 3 (film)
Patna was not named onscreen, the name came from an early script and the novelisation. The ship was a re-use of the Sulaco model with added detailing on the Sulaco's right side.

Patna could also be in the Conestoga Class like the Sephora and Sulaco, having between 4 and 6 decks and between 2 and 4 flight bays. Patna is different to the the Sulaco or the Sephora as it is able to enter the atmosphere similiar with the W-Y FTL spacecrafts.

The script for the film went through a number of drafts before finally producers Walter Hill and David Giler took control of the screenplay themselves, melding aspects of the Ward/Fasano script with Twohy's earlier prison planet screenplay to create the basis of the final film.

Patna doesn't feature in any games that include the surface of Fiorina 'Fury' 161 or the foundry and prison.

On-setEdit

EEV2

Michelle Moen matte department supervisor and Paul Lasaine matte painter painted all the matte backgrounds for the surface, sky and surface features. This included the EEV's atmosphere entry from space and as it entered the atmosphere and crashed into the water the crew used an ultraviolet light to give the clouds a glow against a matte painting of the sky, this was an animated shot with the water splash a digital shot.

ProductionEdit

Patna1

The surface was produced using matte backgrounds, miniatures and full sets, this included the salvage of the EEV with oxen, background of the surface with a cross, a crane salvaging the EEV, Ripley's return to the EEV to use a stasis' scanner and the opening sequence. Later the USS Patna arrived with Michael Bishop and an assortment of Weyland Personnel with the spacecraft flying near the surface and the foundry facility and penal colony.



TimelineEdit

The film Alien 3 is set after the film Aliens and because shortly afterwards as they escape, a fire occurs aboard the Sulaco with Ripley's, Hicks', Newt's and Bishop's stasis units being ejected into the EEV.
