At the beginning of the game, he approaches Amanda Ripley and offers her to come with him on board the courier ship Torrens which is headed to Sevastopol to find out what's in a flight recorder which was retrieved by the Anesidora.
That flight recorder was obtained from the Nostromo, the ship on which Amanda's mother, Ellen Ripley, served on when she disappeared.
