The Upper Deck Company has announced an agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products that will allow the game and trading card company to produce trading card games, trading cards, stickers, and sticker albums based on the Firefly, Alien, and Predator franchises. 
The first product to result from this new agreement will be Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck-Building Game.  The new Alien game will be a stand-alone game that is playable by itself, but Upper Deck is also working to make elements of the Marvel Legendary Deck-Building Game compatible with the new Alien game.
In addition to the Alien and Predator licenses, which are based on movies, the deal also includes the rights to create card games based on Joss Whedon’s cult hit outer space western Firefly, which has enjoyed something of a licensing renaissance recently (see "New 'Serenity' Comics," "New 'Firefly RPG',” "'Firefly: The Board Game'"), a tribute to the longevity of its appeal and the dedication of its fans.
