GJ1227.02, more commonly dubbed Kawlang, was a moon located in the GJ1227 System of the Frontier's Weyland Isles Sector. Originally a mining colony located in Union of Progressive Peoples space, Kawlang was nonetheless annexed by the UPP during the Frontier War and used as a production center for state companies such as Hyperdyne Corporation and Norcomm.[1] In 2377,[3] mercenaries Dom Vriess and Ron Johner sustained paralyzing injuries and graphic facial scarring respectively during a mission on Kawlang.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Kawlang was first mentioned in the novelization of the 1997 film Alien Resurrection. The 2014 reference book Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report referred to Kawlang as a planet; however, the 2023 book Alien: The Roleplaying GameBuilding Better Worlds later identified it as a moon. This article assumes that the latter source is correct.
