Ryushi is a ranching planet at the edge of the Chigusa Corporation's holdings in the Beta Cygni system.

It has two suns - Cygni Minor and Cygni Major, colloquially known as "big" Cygni and "little" Cygni. Cygni Minor created a lot of interference, making it nearly impossible to receive a message out from the planet while it was daylight.

Geographical features[]

The entire planet is a desert. It has many canyons and flat areas, but almost no vegetation at all.

Terrain and Climate[]

Ryushi has harsh living conditions. It's very hot during the day, making it hard for vegetation, as well as all other living beings, to survive. The entire planet is a huge desert with some canyons. The planet has two suns, so finding shade is impossible during the day.

Days on Ryushi last 19 hours.[1]



Weyland-Yutani once tried to settle on Ryushi, but they aborted the mission after complications caused by both Xenomorphs and Yautja. Everyone who was sent on the mission left the planet after these complications except for one, Machiko Noguchi, who decided to stay for personal reasons.

At some point after the incident, a Marine ship received a distress signal from the planet, which also ended in a complete disaster.
