Predator Mission 1 
Date: November 25, 1730
Time: Unknown
Location: Somewhere on LV-1201 
500 Years before the Incident, the Predator lands on Planet LV-1201 in his 
spacecraft to hunt Aliens. While wandering around on the surface of the planet, 
the Predator follows some Aliens to the hive and after a bit of exploring, he 
discovers a strange object. Soon enough the Predator learns of a strange 
Artifact built by these so-called Pilots which can control the Aliens. The 
Artifact is currently disabled when he gets to the Artifact Chamber so he must 
find a way to activate it. When he gets to the Artifact Activation chamber, he 
presses a few buttons and pulls a few levers and the Artifact is activated, 
giving him the power to influence Aliens. When the Artifact was enabled, an 
invisible force-field was also activated, preventing Aliens from coming any 
where near it and kills those that do.

Predator Mission 2 
Date: July 25, 1731 
Time: 7:10 PM
Location: Near Artifact Chamber
During the eight months, other Predators arrive at the planet to explore and 
establish themselves. On one particular day, other Predators went to 
investigate the Artifact Activation Chamber while the main Predator went on 
hunt for the Alien Queen. After getting so close to the Queen's nest, the 
Aliens retaliate and disable the Artifact so the Predator is called back to the 
Artifact Chamber to defend it from Aliens. The Aliens kill all Predators in the 
Artifact Chamber and it's up to the main Predator to reinstate the stasis 
fields so he makes his way to the Egg Chambers to try and activate the stasis 
fields.

PredAlien Mission 1 
Date: July 25, 1731 
Time: 8:15 PM 
Location: In a tunnel near Pilot Ruins
During the retaliation of the Aliens, a lone Facehugger makes its way through 
the Zeta Hive, somehow avoiding all nearby Predators. While ducking and diving, 
the Facehugger cannot facehug any of the Predators along the way because they 
are in groups. So it must find a suitable host, preferably a Predator who is 
alone. With help from some Drone Aliens to distract the Predators, the 
Facehugger manages to crawl through shafts and above ceilings avoiding the 
Predators. Eventually the Facehugger arrives at the Egg Chamber where it sees a 
lone Predator trying to reinstate the stasis fields. The Facehugger jumps down 
into the Egg Chamber and pounces towards the Predator...

Predator Mission 2
Date: July 25, 1731 
Time: 9:20 PM 
Location: Egg Chamber
While trying to reinstate the stasis fields, the Predator accidentally triggers 
the stasis fields but has enough time to turn around and spot the Facehugger. 
With the Facehugger in mid-air, the stasis fields freeze everything including 
the Predator and the Facehugger. Somehow, the Facehugger manages to implant the 
Egg but as the Facehugger dies, unknown to the Predator, he is carrying the 
egg. As the centuries go on, the Predator is still trapped waiting for someone 
or something to free him but 500 years later, there is someone on their way to 
free him... 

Corporate Mission 1 
Date: September 21, 2230
Time: 7:06 PM
Location: Forward Observation Pod 5
Around 500 years later, General Rykov and Dr. Eisenberg learnt of this Artifact 
and sent in a team of Combat Synthetics to retrieve the Artifact. 
Unfortunately, they didn't make it to the Artifact and were killed by many 
Praetorians. At the present time, Rykov calls Dunya in to explain to her the 
situation they're in and tells her that he has found a buyer for the Artifact 
and Dunya is the one who has to go to the Pilot Ruins and find the Artifact.

Corporate Mission 1
Date: September 21, 2230
Time: 11:40 PM
Location: Entrance to Zeta Site
Popov, another corporate, transports Dunya and two Iron Bears in an APC to an 
entrance to the Zeta Hive and it's here where the journey starts. The two Iron 
Bears escort Dunya to an elevator which takes them down into the Alien Hive and 
while defending Dunya from the Aliens, the two Iron Bears are killed. It's now 
down to Dunya alone to retrieve the Artifact. She rushes through passageways, 
avoiding Aliens and she eventually arrives at the Artifact Chamber. Other 
Aliens are unable to come into the Artifact Chamber so Dunya is safe for the 
time being. Rykov speaks to her via the walkie-talkie, telling her to find a 
receptacle to disable the Artifact. Dunya finds the receptacle and places the 
disruption device, given to her by a scientist, into the receptacle and that 
disables the Artifact. After a long time of waiting, the online Pilot systems 
shut down but also causes damage to the entrance of the Artifact Chamber so 
she's forced to find an alternative route... 

Predator Mission 2
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 7:32 AM
Location: Egg Chamber
By Dunya disabling the Artifact, the Predator who was frozen in the stasis 
fields, is now freed after 500 years of been trapped. The Predator rushes to 
the Artifact Chamber via an Alien tunnel and arrives on a very high platform 
just in time to spot Dunya steal the Artifact. After Dunya leaves, the Predator 
must chase after her to return the Artifact but a group of Aliens surround the 
Predator. These Aliens prove no problem for the Predator and continues through 
the Pilot Ruins behind Dunya.

Corporate Mission 1
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 7:46 AM 
Location: Artifact Chamber
Dunya climbs up to a platform above in the Artifact Chamber and continues 
through many doors and killing many Aliens. She eventually gets to a control 
room which was probably built by the Predators and takes an elevator up to a 
platform above. After escaping Facehuggers and crawling under rocks, Dunya gets 
to a room with skulls hung up on the wall which were trophies gained by 
Predators of many different species. She exits the room and goes through 
numerous doors and faces a powerful Praetorian which is no threat to her. After 
avoiding a few Facehuggers, she exits Zeta site and emerges into open air where 
she is given new objectives.

Predator Mission 2
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 7:48 AM
Location: Artifact Chamber
As soon as Dunya leaves the Artifact Chamber, the Predator jumps down onto the 
platform below and follows Dunya. Traveling through passages and killing 
Aliens, the Predator soon gets to the control room with an elevator. Since 
Dunya took the elevator, the Predator must find a different way to get to her 
so he jumps up onto platforms below and through a window. On the ground below, 
Dunya has just gone through a door but the entrance has been blocked so the 
Predator has to go a different way. He goes into the trophy room and jumps up 
onto platforms and over the wall just behind Dunya. The Predator manages to 
fend off Aliens long enough to make it out of Zeta site through the same door 
as Dunya. After Dunya makes her way to Pod 5, the Predator somehow manages to 
get to Pod 5 but it is unknown which way he went.

Corporate Mission 2
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 9:34 AM 
Location: Exit of Zeta Site
When exiting Zeta site, Dunya receives a call from Rykov telling her where the 
APC is so she now has to make her way to the extraction zone to be picked up. 
The APC has activated its locator so it appears on Dunya's Motion Tracker to 
make it easier to find. She travels by foot along the surface of the planet 
meeting Runners, Drones and Facehuggers and indigenous creatures. While 
traveling through winding paths, Dunya finally gets to the APC and Chekov is 
there to pick her up. In the APC, Dunya tells Rykov that his suspicions were 
right about some other species using the Artifact - the Predators. 

Predator Mission 3
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 11:16 AM
Location: The walkway connecting Pod 5 to the water pumping station
Just over one and a half hours later from leaving the Zeta site, the Predator 
arrives at Pod 5. He gets to the top of a walkway where he finds an access 
panel which he need to get through. The Predator pulls the panel off and throws 
it off the platform to the ground and flattens an unfortunate human on the 
crater floor. He climbs through the hole into Pod 5 where the mission begins. 
First of all, the Predator needs to hack into the Pod's systems to find the 
location of the Artifact. Along he goes through the narrow corridors killing 
humans and eventually the Predator gets to a big boiler room where he kills two 
Combat Synthetics. After exiting the room, he climbs up a ladder into a control 
room. The creature kills all humans nearby and hacks into the Pod's system to 
find the location of the Artifact. As soon as he knows it's in Storage Area C, 
he climbs up the elevator shaft and hacks his way through the door into another 
room. After a big fight between humans and Aliens, the Predator hacks into the 
Storage Area to retrieve the Artifact...

Corporate Mission 3
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 11:25 AM
Location: Pod 5
After resting in Pod 5 with Dimitri, Rykov contacts Dunya and tells her that 
Aliens have breached the water walk. Rykov orders Dimitri to go to the water 
walk to meet Chekov and tells Dunya to retrieve the Artifact so they can take 
it to another pod. She goes to Storage Area C to check on the Artifact so she 
sets out towards the Artifact. Aliens are already inside the pod but Dunya 
makes it to Storage Area C in time to see a strange creature in the Artifact 
room and then this creature disappears in front of her very eyes. Unknown to 
her, it's the Predator who has turned invisible. Dr. Eisenberg has blown up the 
walkways connecting Pod 5 to Pods 2 and 4 and she's now ordered to get to the 
cargo lift in order to evacuate the pod.

Predator Mission 3 
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 11:40 AM
Location: Storage Area in Pod 5
After getting the Artifact, the Predator exits Storage Area C and goes in 
search for a communications room to broadcast a message to any nearby Predator 
ships. Other Corporates are killed but the Predator manages to get to an 
elevator where he's taken up towards the communications room. Hurrying along 
the corridors, he gets to the communications room and sends his current 
coordinates to any other Predators nearby but during the process, the Predator 
collapses to the floor in pain. The Alien egg planted inside him 500 years ago 
by a lone Facehugger has hatched and a Chestburster breaks its way through the 
Predator's chest, killing him in the process...

Corporate Mission 3
Date: September 23, 2230
Time: Unknown
Location: Storage Area in Pod 5
After been ordered by Rykov, Dunya sets on her way towards the cargo lift. She 
exits the storage area and climbs up a ladders into a shaft. She climbs through 
and goes through a door and encounters many Runner Aliens. These are no problem 
for her and carries down the stairs into large cargo room. She runs down to the 
level below and gets to the elevator. Just as Dunya calls up the elevator, a 
sweep of Aliens crawl into the room but with the help of her weaponry and the 
deployable Sentry Guns, she manages to fend them off. Off she goes down the 
elevator to the cargo bay where she catches up with Rykov. Dimitri hasn't 
returned since he went to secure the breach so Rykov presumes he's dead. Just 
as they're speaking, Dimitri radios to Rykov so Rykov tells him that they're 
evacuating Pod 5. Ivan, Chekov and Rykov take the cargo lift down to the crater 
bottom while Dunya stays at the cargo bay to defend it until Dimitri arrives. 
Dunya sets up her remaining Sentry Guns and uses the Turret Gun to kill any 
Aliens flooding in. Dimitri eventually arrives and explains to Dunya that he 
took a detour through excavation storage before going to the walkway and must 
have just missed Chekov. They both go down the cargo lift to the bottom of the 
pods where they catch up with Dr. Eisenberg. 

PredAlien Mission 2
Date: September 22, 2230
Time: 12:05 PM
Location: Communications Room in Pod 5
After the Predator is killed, the Chestburster hides in the room and a 
Corporate investigates to see what made the unauthorized broadcast. He radios 
to a team about the mystery creature that's lying dead on the floor and tells 
them that it was holding the Artifact. The Corporate exits the room but is 
sadly killed by a Runner Alien. Now the Chestburster is born, it must avoid 
enemies at all cost and find a food supply in order to evolve. The Chestburster 
should have been enclosed in the corridors but the only explanation could be 
that the guards on duty in the next few rooms must have been distracted and 
opened the doors. The creature escaped the humans and made its way to a room 
with a circular table. Humans came into the room and the Chestburster managed 
to slip by the guard unnoticed. The creature makes its way to the cloak room 
where an Alien helped it to escape. Along it goes above the ceiling and drops 
down to the corridor. A few fully-grown Aliens distract nearby guards and the 
Chestburster gets to the Pod 5 Morgue. In here it has a full food supply and 
soon evolves into a more fiercer creature...

PredAlien Mission 3
Date: September 23, 2230
Time: 03:28 AM
Location: Morgue in Pod 5
A Corporate enters the Morgue after a while and radios to others that Aliens 
are everywhere in the pod, but as he turns around, the evolvement of the 
Chestburster is staring right at him. The PredAlien kills the Corporate and 
escapes through a vent in the ceiling. Its mission at the moment is to escape 
the pod but it does need to find the Artifact and return it to the Alien Hive. 
The creature's intelligence is far superior than every imaged and it manages to 
disable the Electrified Duct Control which shuts down electrified grates. With 
the grates unprotected, it destroys Sentry Gun controls in the room nearby so 
it slips in and goes through to a boiler room. The creature kills the humans 
and eventually makes it onto the corridors. Even with Combat Synthetics on 
guard, the powerful PredAlien kills anything in its path and gets to a large 
pipe. It exits the pipe and wanders around Pod 5 and destroys a control panel 
giving him access to further rooms. It crawls underground and emerges next to a 
room near the Artifact. 

After the Predator was killed, the Artifact must have been retrieved by a Drone 
Alien which brought it to this room. It's not clear how the Drone Alien died 
but Chekov sent a team to collect it. Ivan, Popov and a couple of other 
synthetics arrive in the room to get the Artifact before Pod 5 is blown up. 
Numerous Aliens are trying to get to the Artifact in the room next door and 
Ivan and Popov leave the room before the first charges goes off so they go down 
to the extraction point. Just as the two Corporates leave, the Aliens burst 
through the door and the two Combat Synthetics try to kill them but are easily 
killed by the Aliens. The first charges blow and kills the remaining Aliens in 
the room so the PredAlien must abandon the Artifact before the whole of Pod 5 
comes down. With the pod shaking, the PredAlien crawls up a shaft into a much 
bigger room. It finds and destroys the Security Array Access panel and even 
destroys to humans in Exosuits. In order to escape, the creature must find a 
panel to disable the electric girders so it crawls up to a higher level power 
room and disables them so crawls out of a shaft to exit Pod 5. 

PredAlien Mission 3
Date: September 23, 2230
Time: 7:02 AM
Location: Somewhere aboard Pod 5
After retrieving the Artifact, Popov and a couple of Combat Synthetics were 
killed which could have been caused by the many blasts or by Aliens. Other 
Aliens including the PredAlien escape the pod by a beam on the top but where 
the Artifact is, next to Popov, a Drone Alien appears next to it but it's too 
late as Dr. Eisenberg makes his final order regarding Pod 5...  

Corporate Mission 3
Date: September 23, 2230
Time: 7:02 AM
Location: Beneath the Forward Observation Pods.
Dunya wonders if there's any chance to save the pod but once the lift broke 
away, there's no chance of regaining the pod so the only option is to destroy 
Pod 5 before the Aliens find a way to spread to other pods. The question of any 
survivors is ruled out by Dr. Eisenberg and he then orders the removal of Pod 5 
from the rest of the pods.

Any Mission
Date: November 23, 2230
Time: 10:18 PM
Incident: -1 day, 7 hours.
Location: Primary Operations Complex, LV-1201.
Dr. Eisenberg and a scientist are talking about the loss of Pod 5 and the 
scientist gets onto the possibility of "potential relics" going missing at the 
Zeta dig site. Dr. Eisenberg replies by saying that nothing has gone missing 
when he was on watch and the "relic" the scientist heard about was of little 
importance compared to the knowledge, he's getting from xenomorph studies. 

Predator Mission 3
Date: November 26, 2230
Time: 3:55 PM
Incident: +1 day, 11 hours.
Location: Somewhere near the Primary Operations Complex, LV-1201.
With the coordinates the Predator in Pod 5 sent, a couple of months later, a 
Predator ship lands on LV-1201. Presumably, the ship contains many Predators as 
a few were captured in AvP2 but one Predator comes to the Primary Operations 
Complex and kills two guards. Note that I think this is the Predator you play 
as, in Aliens vs Predator 2.

Conclusion
Date: October 12, 2230
Time: Unknown
Location: Gateway Station, Earth.
Weyland-Yutani Weapons Division, Oversight Committee, Summary of Meeting 
Concerning the Loss of Pod 5.

The loss of Pod 5 is a significant setback for operations on LV-1201. Though 
the pod contained only secondary systems, crew quarters and recreation 
facilities, its loss serves to justify the concerns some committee members have 
long felt regarding Dr. Eisenberg's oversight of the project. Rather than wait 
for an official explanation from Dr. Eisenberg, the committee has authorized 
the immediate departure of a class 2 investigative team and auditor for LV-1201 
with the intention of conducting an independent investigation into the events 
leading to the severing of Pod 5. Until more data is available the priority 
must be stabilizing the situation on LV-1201 before any more mistakes are made.
