- "This little synthetic bitch is gonna plug into the Auriga, and she is gonna take us right back to home base, according to the standard emergency procedures."
- ―Dr. Wren (from Alien Resurrection)
Wren came close to surviving the outbreak aboard the Auriga, but his continued attempts to betray the other survivors eventually led to his death aboard the Betty.
When he discovered that Call, an android member of the pirate crew of The Betty, was attempting to work on the inside to kill Ripley 8 and extinguish the Xenomorph species, he attempts to have her shot as a "terrorist." Wren also orders the execution of the other pirates from The Betty for association. There is a small fight between the soldiers and the pirates. This failed and the pirates capture Wren and one of the soldiers. Wren acted as a guide until he betrayed them, shooting Call non-fatally and heading to The Betty, hoping to get there before the others and escape, stranding them with the aliens. He attempted to try to bring the Aliens to Earth. He is killed when Purvis attacks him in a violent fit of rage, forcing Wren's head to his chest moments before the chestburster emerges, killing them both.
Personality & TraitsEdit
Wren is a seemingly immoral man, having no qualms with killing innocents for the furtherance of science. Wren appears supremely confident and often smug when talking to Ripley 8, although he does seem to have a genuine interest in her well-being, if only from a scientific point of view. Wren was one of the major proponents for keeping her alive following the successful extraction of the Alien Queen from her body. Subsequently, he would interact with Ripely 8 frequently, often pandering to her and appearing genuinely interested in what she had to say.
