Last year 20th Century Fox established Alien Day as April 26th, referencing LV-426. It also marked the 30th anniversary of Aliens. The franchise is a fan favorite here at Fanbase Press, and to celebrate, stalwart fan Bryant Dillon (our fearless Fanbase Press President) and Guest Contributor Nicholas Diak wrote editorials exploring the fandom and lesser-known media output of the Alien franchise.
