The USS Odobenus was a space station orbiting Acheron (LV-426) in the late twenty-second century. It succumbed to a massive Xenomorph infestation.

History[]

A joint-operation between Colonial Marines and Weyland-Yutani, used the Odobenus as a research platform, notably developing the Xenoborg cyborgs on the station. It was in orbit around LV-426 in 2189 when a large Xenomorph infestation broke out at the Weyland-Yutani research complex on the moon. The station suffered a containment breach when it was attacked by a Yautja ship causing structural damages that unleashed many Xenomorphs onboard and three Predator warriors boarded the station. After escaping the infestation on LV-426, Private Anderson boarded the station only to realize that the station was infested, he was forced to battle both Xenomorphs and Yautjas to reach the hydroponic gardens escape pods as the Predator ship destroyed all docking plateforms.

Trivia[]

  • While the Odobenus is not named after any specific element taken from the works of Joseph Conrad, odobenus rosmarus is the taxonomic name for the walrus, which is heavily hunted for its ivory; Conrad's novel Heart of Darkness concerns the ivory trade (albeit in Africa).
  • An "Odobenus Station" is mentioned in a text log in Aliens versus Predator 2; while it seems unlikely this is intended to be the same station that is overrun in the preceding game, it is almost certainly an intentional reference.
