The USS Verloc was a Conestoga-class troop transport ship in service with the United States Colonial Marine Corps. It was deployed to LV-1201 to investigate a loss of communications with the Weyland-Yutani Primary Operations Complex on the planet.

It was manned by Marines under the command of Major McCain and served as the Marines' command center while investigating LV-1201. It housed at least two UD-4L Cheyenne Dropships, which the Marines used to travel to the planet's surface.


LV-1201 mission

After receiving a distress call from Weyland-Yutani personnel stating that they had lost contact with the Primary Operations Complex on LV-1201, the Verloc was deployed to investigate. Its initial mission was to investigate the loss of contact and rescue any survivors.

Major McCain and a detachment of United States Colonial Marines were dispatched to the planet surface aboard two UD-4L Cheyenne Dropships, one of which was lost in the landing process. The initial landing force was to be a scout force which was to be reinforced by a larger Marine force, but a Xenomorph presence on the world prevented it from happening.
