The journey to bringing fandom together is not a straight line. Much like Peter Weyland himself, I’ve had grand plans since forming this blog. But success is not a straight line. The contributions of the Alien Community stretch from Facebook to Twitter to Instagram to Podcasts to Tumblr to Blogs. There is so much that can be overlooked during your internet scan. But in an attempt to shine a light as much as I can, here is a distress beacon for the week. I hope to make this a weekly or at least a bi-weekly event. Here are your links for the week! Go ahead take a look, you’ll like what you see…
