"42 million in adjusted dollars. That's minus payload, of course."
―The insurance attorney (from Aliens)

An unnamed insurance attorney working for the Weyland-Yutani Corporation was present at the Interstellar Commerce Commission tribunal held in 2179 that reviewed the destruction of the USCSS Nostromo 57 years previously.

During the tribunal aboard Gateway Station, the insurance attorney was keen to point out the huge loss of investment the destruction of the USCSS Nostromo represented. When confronted with Ripley's assertions that a Xenomorph had been involved, he immediately sought clarification on whether any such creature was known to exist; the ECA representative at the hearing promptly alleged that it did not. When Ripley became frustrated with the tribunal's refusal to accept her story, she grabbed a handful on the insurance attorney's papers, angrily throwing them across the table.
