Alien: Sea of Sorrows is a 2018 audio drama adaptation of the novel of the same name. It is directed by Dirk Maggs and stars Stockard Channing, Laurel Lefkow, Tony Gardner and John Chancer. It was published by Audible Studios and much like the previous audio drama, it was released on April 26, 2017, to coincide with Alien Day.
Set 300 years after the events of Alien: Out of the Shadows and Alien: River of Pain, Alien: Sea of Sorrows deals with the rediscovery of dormant Xenomorphs (Aliens) in the abandoned mines of LV-178, the planetoid from Alien: Out of the Shadows, which has now been terraformed and renamed New Galveston.
The Weyland-Yutani Corporation, reformed after the collapse of the United Systems Military, continue their unceasing efforts to weaponise the creatures, eliciting the help of Alan Decker, who is forced to join a team of mercenaries sent to investigate an ancient excavation lurking deep beneath the planet's toxic desert, dubbed the Sea of Sorrows.
Somewhere in that long-forgotten dig lies the thing the company wants most in the universe — a living Xenomorph. Decker doesn't understand why the company needs him until his genetic heritage comes back to haunt him. Centuries ago one of his ancestors fought the Aliens, launching a bloody vendetta that was never satisfied. That was when the creatures swore revenge on his forbear, 'the Destroyer', Ellen Ripley... and all her descendants.
