- "It was a nightmare! So real, never felt so alone..."
- ―Meeks (from Alien: Isolation (comic))
Alan Meeks was a crewmember aboard the Anesidora. He was serving on the ship during its fateful voyage in 2137 when it discovered the derelict ship on LV-426, an incident that ultimately unleashed a Xenomorph infestation on Sevastopol Station and led to the destruction of both the station and the Anesidora.
Once the Xenomorph outbreak began, Meeks found himself trapped aboard Sevastopol along with the rest of his surviving crew. At some point, Meeks himself was also subdued by a Facehugger.
Discovering the derelict
After recovering the black box from the Nostromo, the crew of the Anesidora followed the flight path data it contained back to LV-426, hoping to locate and salvage the ship itself. Meeks accompanied Captain Marlow, Foster and Heyst as part of the ground team that set out to investigate the transmission they had detected coming from the surface, eventually discovering the derelict.
Inside the crashed ship's cavernous cargo hold, Foster was attacked and subdued by a Facehugger, and even though the creature later detached, apparently without causing Foster any harm, Marlow elected to take her to Sevastopol Station as quickly as possible, seeking medical help. Upon arrival at the station, Meeks confronted Marlow over his intention to take Foster aboard, refusing to accept such a breach of quarantine. Marlow ended up punching Meeks and took Foster aboard the station anyway.
At some point, Meeks himself was attacked and subdued by a Facehugger, and he was taken to San Cristobal for monitoring. While unconscious, he experienced vivid nightmares involving strange, half-human, half-Xenomorph apparitions, the derelict and a twisted creature resembling his mother with huge Xenomorph jaws in place of her face. Eventually, Meeks was placed in stasis, presumably in an attempt to halt the development of the Chestburster growing inside him; because of this, it is most likely he perished when the station burned up in KG-348's atmosphere.
