The Weyland Corp logo.

The Weyland Corporation, often shortened to Weyland Corp, and sometimes referred as simply "The Company"[1], was a British[2] multinational corporation with a stock worth of $218 trillion in 2093, specializing and developing in major advancements in technology such as holographics, off-world colonization, FTL travel, and others which are consolidated into seven verticals: health, transportation, energy, electronics, terraforming, security, and cybernetics, headquartered in San Francisco, California,[3] Weyland Corp eventually acquired the Yutani Corporation and formed the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.

HistoryEdit

Weyland Corp was established by Sir Peter Weyland on October 11, 2012. Weyland Corp soon became the first company in history to make $100 billion within five years due to massive successes in technological advances. In 2029, the Yutani Corporation filed a lawsuit against Weyland over a patent dispute with the David series. Weyland Corp won the lawsuit, securing its investments and shareholders. Due to Weyland Corp's combined value of various patents, the company incorporated a higher fair market valuation than any other company in history once it was created.

Weyland Corp would go on to terraform the first functional and breathable atmosphere on GJ 667Cc, paving way for further terraforming on other planets, one of which would eventually be LV-426. Sometime after Project Prometheus, Weyland Corp would acquire the Yutani Corporation thus forming the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.

TechnologyEdit

ElectronicsEdit

  • Spectagraph: This next-generation device, used by Weyland geologists and engineers, surveys unknown planetary terrain in the pre-terraforming process. An omni-directional laser live-maps 3D topography and sends the detailed scanned images to the viewing platform. A new hyper-conducting spherical shell allows smooth, self-propelled flight in any atmosphere. Polymer film bio-sensors can detect airborne toxins and life forms down to 500 nanometers.
  • Weyland Modular Computing Device: Invented in 2024. Perfected in 2073. The Weyland Modular Computing Device (WMCD) can provide audio, visual and kinesthetic enhancement to any room, anywhere. The WMCD picks up live video feeds from a remote receiver and fills any space with the sights and sounds of that environment in real-time. The WMCD can also recreate a full-surround environment of a specific location from any point in time for academic study or personal entertainment.

EnergyEdit

  • Zero-loss Lithium Ion Batteries: Composed of traditional lithium with rare metal cathodes and nano-layered silicon anodes, Weyland's newest models of Lithium Ion Batteries have ultra-low internal resistance and zero memory loss. Zero-loss LIBs are used in everything from Hypersleep Chamber backup systems on deep space missions to classroom HoloTabs in Mumbai. The zero-loss battery system can be deposited on a single-layer graphene substrate, making portable power essentially invisible.
  • RLF Reactor: One first-generation RL fusion generator can power 23 million households or 15 million businesses at an affordable price point with limited maintenance. Best suited for civilian power grids due to their size, Weyland RL fusion reactors generate steady Terawatt levels of power, without pulse, making power delivery more replete and efficient. Systems powered by Weyland RLF have blackout percentages at less than 0.01%.
  • Toughened Ceramic Turbine (experimental): While still in the prototype stages, these 18-story turbines, constructed of rare iridium-silicon matrix interspersed with nanocomposite tougheners, have been shown to produce anti-3rd curvature leverage in the testing environment. This amount of power has never been seen before, and Weyland aeronautics engineers are researching a way to enhance SEV space travel performance and in-flight design, possibly eliminating the need for hypersleep in the future of FTL space travel.
  • "Solstice" Solar Array: Once Weyland’s first enterprise as a fledgling corporation. Today, the Solstice is a best-selling product meeting over half the energy needs of colonies galaxy-wide. Fully-articulating, in-orbit solar arrays deliver uninterrupted, constantly renewable power. Our solar sensors are composed of thin film polymer with polycrystalline silicon distribution. The Solstice is the first and only orbiting solar array used today by the governments of the US, UK, Germany, Russia and their colonies, largely serving military power needs due its unique flexibility in power delivery.

HealthEdit

  • MedPod 720i: This year, Weyland Industries introduced the FDA-approved MedPod 720i - our most advanced unit to date - which can diagnose, treat and perform a range of surgical procedures with ultra-fine laser incisions guided by 3D anatomical scanning. Procedures include everything from diagnosis and treatment of infection through concentrated antibiotic injections, basic wound repair, appendectomy, laparoscopic ablation and Cesarean section. At present, a dozen units have been manufactured and deployed in the field by Weyland Industries for practical testing.
  • MEDIC (Mobile External Diagnostics Center): MEDiCs are a critical tool for any publicly occupied space or civilian home environment. MEDiCs provide peace of mind like never before. Simply open the wall-mounted case and remove the diagnostic vest. Once placed over the patient, MEDiC will determine the extent of all external damage, analyze blood samples, if present, and return results within minutes. Emergency personnel responding can immediately access the patient’s information from MEDiC and relay it to nearby clinical facilities. MEDiCs can be administered by any adult citizen and have saved millions of lives.
  • Anti-Gravity Recovery Chamber: Anti-Gravity Recovery Chambers are a highly sophisticated technology used in hospitals and rehabilitation centers. Research has shown that patients in anti-gravity conditions exhibit a 70% faster recovery rate from traumatic injury or disease. Weyland scientists designed a room-sized facility that simulates anti-gravity on a particulate level. Patients can receive the benefits of anti-gravity treatment while remaining comfortably in bed. This product is currently under limited release exclusively in major metropolitan areas on earth.
  • Synapse Reestablisher: Another remarkable technological feat from Weyland scientists, the Synapse Reestablisher, through precise, minute electrical innervation, awakens dormant neurons in the brain tissue of deceased or dying patients. This delicate technology is highly sensitive and restricted to a select group of doctors and scientists. The 9 existing Reestablishers have been in use for the past 2 years in medical schools and biotech research centers for experimental use only, pending FDA investigation.

SecurityEdit

  • Weyland FTL Lifeboat: Exclusively designed for FTL crafts of a suitable size, this emergency sustaining pod is an embedded safety module comprised of 7 luxury-appointed rooms, complete with independent navigation and piloting controls. Reclaiming decontamination system allows one occupant 50 years of breathable air with or without hypersleep.
  • Advanced SE Suits: Used in exploration, reconnaissance and for tactical maneuverability in the field. Nano-reinforced composite helmet allows a 320° rotational field of vision with info display of vital stats, environmental conditions, communications systems and data analysis. Cadmium exoskeleton provides safety and stability over rough terrain. Iridium-coated, laser resistant light armor optional.
  • Power Loader: Since introduction, the power loader has improved workplace safety by 300% in off-world applications. Its low alloy steel exoskeleton is designed to withstand maximum compression stress, keeping the driver safe from external blows. Hydraulically stabilized legs give 3 tons of load lifting ability.
  • Weyland Storm Rifle: Fabricated from heat-resistant micro-perforated titanium, the Storm weighs 1.3 kg (empty of ammunition). With unrivaled technology like satellite-guided target detection, the Storm can track and assess a threat at over 300 miles away. At close range, it fires 5.56 mm uranium carbide spin-stabilized rounds, through auto-adjusting crosshairs.

TerraformingEdit

  • Atmosphere Processor: This proprietary system creates a localized environment in the lowest atmospheric strata by mining the surrounding air and delivering electrostatic charge to correct the chemical composition of the planetary atmosphere. The system does this by converting toxic compounds into a breathable air ratio of approximately 1:3.1 oxygen-to-nitrogen ratio, depending on a colony’s oxygen needs. Once stable equilibrium is achieved, the AP continually monitors environmental gas compositions and corrects imbalances. By-products can often be isolated and condensed for use as fuel sources, industrial cleaning supplies or raw materials for manufacturing.
  • IM 80: The IM 80 (Igneous/Metamorphic) Rock Processor is designed to improve the quality of life on off-world colonies with adverse indigenous terrain. Through high-powered mechanical disturbance and the introduction of proprietary enzymes, the IM 80 transforms inhospitable terra into fertile soil for use in agriculture and bio-replication. It can be operated by a 4-person crew of Weyland planetary engineers or trained civilian contractors. A prototype is currently undergoing practical trials on KOI-854.01 outside the heavy ore mining colony of Luther City.
  • Bio-Replicator Pod: This remarkable device was introduced in 2058 for use by Weyland planetary engineers. However, recent advancements have made bio-replicator pods available to off-world civilians for home use. Each pod has a database of over 40 million seed varieties and plant DNAs. With the push of a button, it can replicate the requested sample. Growth rates are currently at about 55%, not factoring unsuitable planetary conditions for a given species. At 1 cubic foot in size, an array of thousands of bio-replicator pods can be outfitted to any seeder for industrial use. For household use, it is recommended to store bio-replicator pods outside the home.
  • Atmospheric Pressurizer: Sold exclusively in conjunction with Weyland Atmosphere Processors, the Atmospheric Pressurizer can create a locally adapted micro-pressurized environment to prevent injury, illness or discomfort on off-world colonies with either marginal or oppressive stratospheric hold. On most planets, a standard atmospheric pressure of approximately 1.0 atmosphere at sea level can be achieved, reducing the need for decompression treatments and additional medical personnel in the early stages of terraforming.

TransportationEdit

  • ATV NR6: Two-person transport vehicle with 4-tread, track-belted wheels able to negotiate near-vertical terrain carrying small payload. With the NR6, Weyland planetary engineers are able to survey previously inaccessible areas of newly discovered proto-colonies. Vehicles reach top speeds of 88 mph in standard atmospheric pressure and gravitational pull. Variable-friction axes for front and rear wheels provide micro-torque gear adjustments for maximum safety and mobility across any foreign surface.
  • Hypersleep Chamber: The only product on the market capable of suspending the body’s autonomic functions while maintaining the health of each individual cell during stasis. A Holographic display communicates with ship’s mainframe to monitor metabolic conditions to suspend cell function. The Hypersleep Chambers can be programmed to initiate, maintain and terminate hypersleep stasis of human crew depending on length of mission and percent FTL travel. Zero-loss lithium ion batteries in a tertiary backup system support the chamber’s function for up to 100 years in case of emergency.
  • RT Series Group Transport: One of our most popular and best-selling products. The RT Series Group Transport's shape-memory alloy wheel system has nano-reinforced hard-composite treads that resist temps up to 2000°F. Its ceramic gas turbine engine has .4 million pounds of thrust making its cargo weight virtually unlimited. With an 5.7 meter wheelbase, the personnel bay fits up to 20 occupants.
  • Heliades: As the first-ever FTL space exploration vehicle, Heliades revolutionized the known galaxy. Dual FTL engines are driven by a 2.1 terrawatt RL fusion reactor. The ability to provide molecularly stable transport for ship components and human crew over light-years of space gives Weyland explorers, scientists and planetary engineers access to regions never before imagined. ICC-certified and compliant, our newest flagship model has a payload capacity of up to 9 megatonnes and a redesigned airframe and features a medical bay, lab facilities, and over a dozen HES-compatible chambers.

Weyland Corp Timeline

2089 AD Elizabeth Shaw finds in Scotland a cave painting depicting primitive men around a large being, who points to a group of stars. Prometheus
2091 AD The spaceship Prometheus, under contract to Weyland Corp, leaves Earth heading for LV-223. Shaw is one of the key members, as Peter Weyland thought her theories about the origins of humanity could help him overcome death. Prometheus
2093 AD Prometheus arrives at LV-223 after two years of travel. A strange structure which has a cavern filled with Urns is found. A storm traps two crewmembers, Milburn and Fifield, inside a cave. They are attacked by snake-like creatures. Inside the Prometheus, the android David finds inside an urn a dark liquid substance, with whom he infects Holloway, who then passes onto Shaw through sex. Prometheus

2093 AD

As the storm passes and the crew goes after the missing members, David discovers one of the former inhabitants of the Derelict is still alive, and Holloway's infection ravages his body, leading Meredith Vickers to torch him alive. Shaw discovers herself pregnant despite being sterile, and an automated surgery table cuts a squid-like creature from her womb. An infected Fifield kills seven crewmembers before being shot by Captain Janek. Janek suggests Shaw that the planet was used by the Engineers as a military base until they lost control of their biological weapons; the ampoules. The caves within the strange structure are revealed as corridors of a ship. The remaining crew goes to awaken the Last Engineer, who kills Peter Weyland, Ford and Jackson and decapitates David, but Shaw manages to escape. The ship starts to take off, but Janek rams the Prometheus onto it to take it down. Vickers is crushed by the Derelict, but Shaw survives and goes to the Prometheus Lifeboat. There she finds both the overgrown squid creature and the Engineer, who tries to kill Shaw but she escapes by unleashing the squid onto him. Shaw goes after David, and the two manage to leave LV-223 with another Derelict ship, sometime later a Deacon emerges from the Engineer's body.

Prometheus

TriviaEdit

  • Weyland Corp and it's founder Peter Weyland appear to contradict the Weyland Industries origin portrayed in Alien vs. Predator. When Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof pointed this out to director Ridley Scott during the film's production, Scott made it clear that he had no intention of following the timeline laid out in the Alien vs. Predator films.[4] It remains to be seen if this is an official retcon of events. However, it seems that at least the change in the company's name was intentional — in Jon Spaihts' original script for Prometheus, titled Alien: Engineers, Weyland Corp was still referred to as Weyland Industries, the name used in Alien vs. Predator.[5] This was subsequently changed in later drafts.
  • Originally, the Weyland Corp website simply displayed pictures of Peter Weyland's TED Talk.[6]
Stasis Interrupted-Player 2

Player 2 in Stasis Interrupted. Note the Weyland Corp logo on the jacket.

  • When playing co-op in Stasis Interrupted, player 2 will wear a coat with the Weyland Corp logo.
  • In AVP: Evolution Predator Mission 6 - Power Out, towards the end of the level before facing the Praetorian, an old worn out poster of the vintage Weyland Corp logo can be seen. The logo is also featured on the game's main menu.
