He would've wisely continued to defer to Ripley.

In his defense, Burke was a rat f**k son-of-a-bitch.

Burke would tried to back stab them the first chance he got. If Ripley had been foolish to take him back with them she would have doomed them all.

Depends on how many Marines they had left.  Had the Aliens stayed at the processer and made it back with the crew they had left they could've managed him.


If it would've been down to the crew at the end with no standing Marines..................prob ably not.

Perfect-Organism says Hicks was quiet and reserved, but that in no way says he was a pacifist. I would also say quiet and reserved (at the start) , but also reluctant, as in, reluctant for leadership or responsibility. That bit where Ripley points out to Burke that Hicks is the successor in the chain of command, and Hicks's shoulders slump and he sighs so heavily - priceless!

I've always imagined him as coasting through his time, lack of ambition holding him back from further promotion. Ricco Ross says after 2weeks of James Remar he could barely recognise Hicks in what Biehn was doing with the character. Remar was forthright and dominant; Biehn was low key  and softly spoken, and it took Ross a while to understand Biehn's acting choices and overall interpretation. I think we lucked out there.

There are  the Geneva Conventions, and then there are situations where your squad got decimated light years away from support, and you have dozens of nightmare creatures wanting to snack on you and then you have a saboteur to boot. Survival will trump the rules when you are in extenuating circumstances. From Hicks POV, Burke might as well have been pointing a gun at him and the others.

I don't disagree, but it's not Captain America approved.

The place was about to go nuclear.

There'd be no evidence left.

You got it.  Hicks was played brilliantly by Biehn.  Literally one of the best action characters I’ve seen.  He has no patience for BS.  Is so at ease with himself he can fall asleep during a space drop, yet that doesn’t mean he is incompetent.  He always rises to the occasion without any Mach bravado.  Just all serious.  All business.  There are so many layers to the character and to Biehn’s performance.  You see it furthered in Coffey in the Abyss, but after that, he never really gets a chance to shine in a big role.  It really was a terrible loss all around that Biehn didn’t get a chance to reprise his role.  Hopefully that chance will come soon.

Not what I'm saying.  Not arguing he could've got away with it.  Arguing that he wasn't as clean cut good guy as he's often remembered as.

It might not be what people wanted. But it's what Alien needed.
