Shortly after the Origin Facility was established around the derelict spacecraft on LV-426, Michael created a synthetic double of himself and ordered him to monitor the Origin Facility's operations while Michael would monitor the facility from elsewhere through the synthetic. After the Origin Facility was overrun by the Xenomorphs, the synthetic double used the FTL vessel,Resolute, to escape LV-426. The surviving USS Sephora Marines were able to intercept the vessel and eventually confronted the double, still unaware of his true nature. The double begged the Marines to spare him as O'Neal was about to execute him, but Bishop intervened and successfully convinced the Marines to spare the double. Hicks suddenly executed the double, noticing that he didn't breathe the whole time they were in the room and deduced that he was merely an android double left behind as a decoy. Bishop later connected himself to the destroyed synthetic's CPU in search for useful information and states that he has "everything".
