Step outline

Scene 1 - Space  10s
The Alien wakes up from stasis to find her ship damaged and descending towards a nearby planet. Alarms are ringing and the ship is grumbling.

Scene 2 - Crash  15s
The ship plummets through the atmosphere as the alien tries to steer towards land. (I am not sure if I want the Alien to do it, or she blacked out and the ship does it for her) The screen goes black as it impacts the ground.

Scene 3 - Death  25s
The Alien staggers out of the ship, coughing from the smoke leaking out from the console. Turning around she notices a large gash in the ship’s side. She comforts the dying spacecraft as it uses its last moments to eject it’s “egg” (A clone of the ship’s organic half, stored in stasis in some form of egg. This is normally hatched when the original nears the end of its lifespan)
After the ship dies the Alien holds the egg.

Scene 4 - Gathering supplies  10s
The Alien unattaching the machinery from the dead ship and piling it together. Then collecting wood and long grass.

Scene 5 - Make shelter  10s
Constructing a shelter to provide shade from the sun.

Scene 6 - Fishing  5s
The alien is standing in the water looking for fish. After a second or two she darts forward catching one. Maybe a later shot of her walking back up the beach with a few.

Scene 7 - Fire  15s
As it gets darker a storm rolls in. The Alien rushes to cover the egg and protect it from the cold. As it starts noticeably shivering She runs off and drags over the ship’s battery and by sparking some wires near the wood she builds a fire.

Scene 8 - Night time 5s
End the day with a wide shot of the island camp with the fire dying down.

Scene 9 - Morning 20s
The alien wakes up to the sound of the egg cracking. As she kneels down beside it, the egg breaks down the middle, revealing a creature very similar to the ship but much smaller. The scene fades to black as the alien picks up the tiny ship.
