"I may be synthetic, but I'm not stupid."
Lance Bishop was a Hyperdyne Systems model 341-B synthetic technician with the United States Colonial Marine Corps, assigned to 2nd Battalion Bravo Team. He served as Executive Officer aboard the USS Sulaco, and as such was part of the combat unit deployed to LV-426 in 2179, to investigate the sudden loss of contact with the colony of Hadley's Hope. He was subsequently involved in combating the Xenomorph infestation at the colony.
As a technician, Bishop was not part of the squad's combat personnel, although he used his non-combat skills to aid in the oescape of the survivors from the colony. He survived the incident along with Ellen Ripley, Corporal Hicks and Rebecca Jorden, although he was seriously damaged and later deactivated at his own request. *Aliens (1986)
