Ted Gillas, better known as Junior, was an inmate at the Fiorina "Fury" 161 Class C Work Correctional Unit, one of several who stayed behind after the facility was officially closed down by Weyland-Yutani. He was involved in battling a lone Xenomorph that was born in the prison in 2179.
A serial rapist, Junior was the ringleader in the rape attempt on Ellen Ripley. While he is presumed killed in the explosion and fire that claims several prisoners in the theatrical version of the film, in the Assembly Cut he sacrifices his life in order to lure the Xenomorph into a nuclear waste dump where it is then trapped by the other inmates.
Junior was sent to Fiorina for committing "aggravated sexual assault; assault with a deadly weapon".
Little is known about Junior, except that he was one of the 25 prisoners on Fury 161 who converted to the religion the rest of the prisoners follow. He along with Gregor and another (possibly William) attempted to gang rape Ripley until Dillon intervened and "re-eductated" Junior by severely beating him with an iron rod. Junior is identifiable by the tear-drop tattoo under his right eye, and then after the beating Dillion gives him, he is identified by the large bandage on his head. Junior was killed in the explosion.
In the 2003 Assembly Cut of the Alien3, an entire sub-plot was restored which shows Junior redeeming himself of his past sins. During the mayhem of the explosion, he goes to activate the sprinkers, running into Troy who yells out that the Alien is behind him and has cut him off from the rest of the group. Junior then looks at Ripley with remorse, and proceeds to bait the Alien to follow him into the waste container. After the Alien chases Junior into the container, Ripley shuts the door behind them. Junior's tortured screams are then heard from outside.
Personality and TraitsEdit
Junior was known to be difficult to control. His distinguishing mark was the teardrop tattoo in the corner of his eye.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Junior's death scene was cut out from the theatrical release of Alien3.
It is interesting to note that Gregor's screams from the Assembly Cut of the film (as he was caught in the flames and was being put out by Junior and Ripley) were reused for Junior's screams as he was being mauled by the Alien in the waste dump.
