For the past few years, each April 26th I have to look up why it’s “Alien Day”. The date is named after the planet LV-426, where the xenomorphs are first encountered in the original, 1979 Ridley Scott film. Well, I’ve been a fan of the horror-scifi franchise since I saw the sequel, Aliens. I’ve since watch any film in the series (good and bad) and read a lot of the comics. So, anyway, happy Alien Day to my fellow sci-fi fans.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there should always be a line that’s “Black Coffee Only.”
Our general advice: The fewer hyphens the better.
Use them only when not using them causes confusion. Think of hyphens as an aid to readers’ comprehension. If a hyphen makes the meaning clearer, use it. If it just adds clutter and distraction to the sentence, don’t. #APStyleChat
Real men leave their threatened manliness messages carved in wood of trees they felled and made using bone tools of animals they hunted. Just sayin’

@pablohidalgo I actually didn’t learn that the Emperor’s name was Palpatine (or Darth Sidious or anything other than “Emperor”) until reading the Zahn books freshman year of college. But yeah, there’s always been a bigger world than just the films.
