Starred In Goldeneye (1995)
Alec Trevelyan accompanies Bond in the pre-title sequence to enter a Russian chemical weapons factory, where they head to the factories storage facilities to plant detonators. Whilst Bond is planting the detonators, Alec is caught and held at gunpoint by General Arkady Grigorovich Ourumov. As Bond walks out laying his gun down, Alec tells Bond to finish the job at which Ourumov shoots Alec.
Making a surprise re-appearance much later in the film, it becomes apparent that Alec and General Ourumov are in partnership. Alec explains to Bond his plan is to get revenge for the mistreatment of his Lienz Cossacks parents at the hands of the British. When Bond refuses his offer to join his scheme, he is shot with a tranquilliser dart and placed inside the Tiger helicopter.
Alec later encounters Bond when his Russian tank stands in the oncoming path of the armour train. After stopping the train in its tracks, Bond boards and confronts Alec, Xenia Zaragevna Onatopp, and Ourumov holding Natalya Fyodorovna Simonova at gunpoint. Alec makes Ourumov the sacrificial lamb to allow him and Xenia to escape, leaving Bond trapped with explosives, giving him three minutes to escape.
Bond and Natalya later travel to Cuba where all the main players are ready to steal money from British banks, moments before activating Goldeneye satellite over London, removing any trace of the crime. With Natalya's help, Bond manages to stop Alec. After a nasty fight atop the Goldeneye satellite transmitter, Bond drops Alec to his death.
Secret service agent 006, Bond regrets the death of his colleague when he believes General Ourumov has killed him. Bond is shocked to see him several years later when he emerges as the leader of the Russian organised-crime group Janus.
Trevelyan makes it clear to Bond on a number of occasions that he is smarter than him, and that he had anticipated every move Bond has made. Describing 007 as 'Her Majesty's loyal terrier', he frequently tells him that he is naïve with sarcastic comments. However Trevelyan doesn't count on Bond changing the time on the detonators in the pre-title sequence, causing bad scaring to Alec's face, or indeed gaining the eventual upper hand. §
