The time is the future. The crew aboard a massive commercial space vehicle is en route to earth with a load of extraterrestrial ore when they are sidetracked by mysterious signals from a nearby planet. The signals seem to be calls for help and when the space ship arrives they find a ruined, moldering spacecraft and within it egg-like living organisms.
Starring Sigourney Weaver. Directed by Ridley Scott.
