Bishop - Aliens

In Aliens, in a pleasant twist on expectations, Bishop, the android counterpart to Ash from the original Alien film, takes on a team-player attitude, ultimately sacrificing himself for the sake of Ripley and Newt. Bishop 341-B is created by the Weyland-Yutani corporation and addresses some of the faulty programming of earlier android models like Ash. Ripley is rightly skeptical but eventually give Bishop a second chance and finds her trust well-placed. Aliens paints a much rosier picture of human-android relations.
