San Drad, California is a fictional city located in the United States. Before the Xenomorph infestation it had become the largest city on the West Coast.


While the origin of the city is unknown, its development as an advanced human colony was possible thanks to the management of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation containing a more civilized urban area, warehouses for cargo and a huge laboratory in the middle of the forest for research. Experiments using Xenomorphs were led by General Bush, a member of the United States Colonial Marines Corps. Later the city was destroyed by the colonial marines Dutch Schaefer, Linn Kurosawa and two Yautjas by launching a military ship which crashed into it, wiping out the Xenomorphs from Earth


  • San Drad resembles Hadley's Hope from Aliens. Both colonies were managed by Weyland-Yutani corporation, even both locations share a very similar architecture and technology, both were infested by Xenomorphs and destroyed with a nucear expossion.
