Colonial Marines Technical Manual was published in 1996 by
Harper-Prism. These was an issue with copyright infringement on some of
the illustrations, so printing was halted after the first edition. This
manual has become popular with fans and currently sells for between
$30.00 to $70.00 on eBay. I have included the complete manual here for
your enjoyment. The PDF versions of each page have been disabled to

I was fortunate
enough to attend a pre-screening of the first Alien movie the Wednesday
before the nationwide opening. From that moment on I was hooked. I have
not created any artwork for the series, but did run across this book as
the sole example of fan-created material.
