He is first seen in the group of prisoners who attempt to rape Ellen Ripley but are stopped when Dillon intervenes. He is present when Andrews gives his second 'Rumor Control' speech in the mess hall and is a witness of his death. Arthur is seen again later when the group decide who is in charge. When the prisoners prepare to capture the Alien, Arthur and Troy are seen checking flashlight batteries briefly, and Troy complains about the difficulty of the job. After the explosion, Arthur is in a search party for surviving prisoners, though they find none. He is then put on a guard duty to watch the door of the waste tank. While Arthur is on duty, Golic approaches the waste tank. Arthur tells the insanely babbling criminal to get lost, but Golic quickly slits his throat with a straight razor. Arthur looks at Golic in stunned disbelief, and quickly bleeds to death from the injury while Golic screams a panicked, maniacal apology.
