During the initial outbreak of the Thing within the facility, he was left stranded in the now infested facility; luckily Blake, who just gained his consciousness was, able to rescue Dixon and gained his trust. Unfortunately, his alliance with Blake resulted in him being put in Whitley's extermination list. Dixon, along with Blake and several others, fought their way through both the dreaded Thing Beasts and Whitley's elite Black Ops units. However, he was killed by the explosion caused by the time bomb that was set by Whitley, causing the entire facility to be destroyed. Blake was the only one that made it to the surface and proceeded to the Transit Hangar.
