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.[1]

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.[1]
