I've mentioned Murphy before, especially during the release of Cold forge. He's played the role of "bad guy" (in my head) for most of the Alien novels and unused scripts I've ever read. But Sudler was the best character I could ever hope to see him play in the franchise. If we never get to see him as the dirty "suit" in an alien movie, it will be a tragedy. But no matter what Alien literature I read, he'll always be the bad guy. And, as far as I'm concerned, he always has.
