There are plenty of ways to die horribly in space. Just ask any red-shirted ensign from "Star Trek," if you have time before he or she gets shot out an airlock, vaporized by a Gorn or burned up by a Horta.
But now one of the worst ways to die in space is coming to the Star Trek universe. The characters from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" will meet the acid-bleeding, face-hugging, chest-bursting xenomorphs from "Aliens" in a new comic book miniseries, "Acceptable Losses," coming out in April.
And hat tip to whoever at Gizmodo photoshopped a drooling Alien facing down Commander Data. That's not an actual scene from the comic of course, but it gets at the heart of what fans want to see. Not sure even Data's positronic brain can get him out of this one.
