Robert Morse

"How about if I sit here on my ass?"
Played By: Danny Webb

"...we ain't got no entertainment center, no climate control, no video system, no surveillance, no freezers, no fucking ice cream, no rubbers, no women, no guns. All we got here is shit!"

A loud and argumentative prisoner.

Walter Golic

"In an insane world, a sane man must appear insane."
Played By: Paul McGann

"It was a dragon! Feeds on minds. It was- nobody can stop it!"

A strange, unpredictable prisoner who is something of an outcast.
  • Ax-Crazy: Was originally sent to prison for multiple violent murders. He mentions that he "knew lots of pretty girls, back home" and that they liked him "for a while".
  • Apologetic Attacker: Apologizes (a little frantically) after slitting another prisoner's throat to get to the alien.
  • Blood-Splattered Innocents: Well, sort of. He winds up splattered with a hell of a lot of blood through no fault of his own, so he's technically innocent. In that, at least.
  • Cassandra Truth: Nobody believes him about the alien but Ripley. The rest think he murdered the others on his crew.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: And is proven right in a really gruesome way.
  • Insane Equals Violent
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: in the Assembly Cut, the prisoners actually did manage to trap the alien. Unfortunately Golic, who worships the thing as a kind of dragon, kills the guard and lets it out again. Oops.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: He's easily excited, easily upset, and apologizes frantically to his murder victim like a misbehaving child.
  • Talkative Loon: Halfway. He doesn't say a lot, but when he does speak, he tends to babble.


An older, more educated inmate.

  • Bald of Awesome
  • Nice Guy
  • Noodle Incident: When collecting chemical barrels with Ripley, he mentions witnessing the chemical's explosive properties firsthand. He doesn't go into much detail, but the blast was big enough to put a ship in dry dock for 17 weeks.
  • Only Sane Man

Ted 'Junior' Gillas

Played By: Holt McCallany

A younger and more silent prisoner, sentenced for aggressive sexual crimes. He is easily recognizable via the teardrop tattoo he has below his right eye and the welding goggles he often wears.

    The Company 

Michael Bishop II

Played By: Lance Henriksen

"Think of all we could learn from it!"

A Weyland-Yutani executive that the Bishop model was based off of, this Bishop wanted his hands on a Xenomorph
