Pretty inventive, the whole post is interesting to read, it's about a dozen or so posts down the page at the link.

<snip>

Ripley wakes up and lo and behold, society functions. From her testimony, the entire board of directors of The Company are promptly hanged! She is made advisor to the Grand Revenge Fleet. Meanwhile, she raises her daughter, who reaches university and has her own alien-fixation that has veered differently than Ripley's. Newt becomes an anthropologist.

Newt persuades the president to allow one teeny little ship to try to make peace while the Grand Fleet roars off to engage in garish space battles. After much whizzing and pyrotechnics, humans approach the Aliens' planet and Ripley will have the honor of pressing the Planet Buster button...

... only at that very moment, a message comes from her daughter that contact has been made! Ripley screanms NO! and dives for the button but is stopped.

Her DAUGHTER is hero of the age. Turns out the aliens are elegant, dignified beings... who had to work MUCH harder than we did in order to overcome their inherited natures. They are horrified to learn the reason for our anger... that we encountered untutored Eggs! They are ashamed that we (especially) Ripley) were put through that through their carelessness.
