There is something a little creepy and off about Carter Burke (Paul Reiser) from the first time we meet him in Aliens. And it turns out that the Weiland-Yutani rep, who convinces Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) to accompany him and a platoon of marines to LV-426, the planet where Ripley and her Nostromo shipmates first discovered the acid-blooded xenomorphs, does in fact have a nefarious plot: he is planning to smuggle two alien embryos past Earth customs in the body of Ripley and the little girl Newt (Carrie Henn). To that end he locks the women in a lab with two facehuggers.
