Aboard the USS Sephora, a squad of Colonial Marines are battling against a horde of Xenomorphs before Weyland-Yutani PMCs arrive and take out both the Xenos and the marines in an attempt at scorched earth, leaving only 'Doc' and Private O'Neal alive. After a close encounter with a group of Xenos, leading to the Doc saving O'Neil's life, the two come across a wounded PMC soldier, who cites that he just wants to see his wife. Suddenly, a Chestburster erupts from inside him.

After the two regroup with Captain Cruz and a group of marines, Doc reminisces to himself that he realizes that it is no longer is his job just to save lives, but to survive.
