In 2179, Ellen Ripley crash landed on Fiorina 161 after the EEV ejected her along with Corporal Hicks, Newt and Bishop from the Sulaco due to the presence of the facehugger. A facehugger eventually emerged from the wreakage of the EEV and impregnated the prison dog, Spike. A Xenomorph eventually ruptured from Spike and matures to its adult form. It begins a killing spree in the prison, causing mass hysteria among the prisoners. Superintendent Andrews tried to take control of the situation, but was killed by the Alien during his "rumor control".
He is killed by the Alien during the plan to trap it in the furnace. He uses a meat cleaver as a weapon against the monster, and his body is found by Ripley.
