He reunites with his son Danny on Earth for a brief, awkward encounter that Danny uses as a pretext to steal a data drive from his father. Gabe continues therapy with a Bishop unit to work through his traumatic memories while Danny and his girlfriend Iris storm the Epsilon Station satellite where Gabe used to work, killing staff and attempting to destroy data for corporate espionage but they come across a room full of biological experiments using Xenomorph DNA.
