"I only need to know one thing…"

And that thing is... what's Private Vasquez' first name?

I can't seem to find it in any cast listing. Ripley & Hicks's first names got revealed in the special edition but as for the others.. who knows?

  • It’s Jenette…it’s on the wiki page. – Adamant Jan 11 '17 at 19:53

The in-universe factbook The Weyland-Yutani Report names her as

Jenette Vasquez

In case you're interested, the rest of the crew of the Sulaco were Lance Bishop, Scott Gorman, Dwayne Hicks, Trevor Wierzbowski, William Hudson, Al Apone, Cynthia Dietrich, Mark Drake, Ricco Frost, Tim Crowe, Colette Ferro and Daniel Spunkmeyer. Company representative Carter Burke and civilian adviser Ellen Ripley were also in attendance (joined later by Rebecca "Newt" Jorden).

  • Where did you find that picture? I was looking for it. Do you have the book? – Adamant Jan 11 '17 at 19:59
  • @Adamant - Youtube is your friend. This copy is in Spanish but it's the same in the English version, just not as clear – Valorum Jan 11 '17 at 20:02

    Based on the information on those wiki pages, it looks like the first names of the characters who didn't have their first names mentioned in the script come from the first names of the actors. They match for Vasquez, Apone, Bishop, Dietrich, Drake, and Ferro (and possibly others; I stopped checking after finding enough to rule out coincidence.) – Ray Jan 12 '17 at 3:08
