LV-44-40 was a scientific research space station operated by the Seegson Corporation. It was designed to be moved from one place of scientific interest to another and to collect research data whilst on-station. It had a typical crew complement of twelve.
In 2137, the space station was operating in the Dorado constellation, near Zeta Doradus, when it was overrun by Xenomorphs. The entire crew had been taken to the alien hive in a storage bay, where they were cocooned and used as hosts. The hive was ultimately destroyed by Davis and Zula when stolen data from Weyland-Yutani flagged this space station as a contagion breakout point.
