History[edit | edit source]

Operating Manager Simpson sends Russ and his wife Anne beyond the colony to search for a derelict ship on vague orders of Carter J. Burke back on Earth. Russ Jorden and his wife went inside the Space Jockey's spacecraft to investigate, and discovered the ancient alien egg nest, where he was then implanted by a facehugger. He is the second known human to be implanted by a face hugger since Nostromo crewmember Kane's discovery of the Alien egg nest and subsequent facehugger implantation 57 years earlier. He died after he returned to the colony in front of the physician and his wife. His daughter and son secretly watched his death from a vent.
