A line of android models created by Charles Weyland, and seen prominently in the movie "Aliens". Bishop is a highly advanced synthetic human who accompanies a military team to the planet LV-426 to wipe out an alien infestation. He primarily works as a driver or pilot, as is shown in the movie when he hovers a dropship above a landing in order to save Ellen Ripley from being killed by an alien queen.
Bishop: "I may be synthetic but I'm not stupid."
