The Aurora was a cargo vessel operated by Captain Jonas Richter in 2230. It was used to smuggle Xenomorph Ovomorphs to LV-1201 for the Weyland-Yutani Corporation. On September 23, 2230, the Aurora landed on LV-1201 at the Primary Operations Complex on a routine delivery. Richter was arrested by Lloyd on General Vassili Rykov's orders. Accidentally, a single Facehugger hatched inside the ship and escaped into the POC where it impregnated Cisco. The Aurora's fate after the POC was overrun by Xenomorphs is unknown, most likely it remained in the bay where it became part of the Hive that was formed there.
