The Fiorina 161 Class C Work Correctional Unit at one point maintained thousands of Double-Y Chromosome maximum risk prisoners but in 2179 supported twenty-two inmates and three custodians.The prison was originally an mineral ore refinery but this operation was ceased and it became a leadworks, in time that operation stopped and Fiorina was then reduced to merely serving as a toxic waste disposal dump.

Alien3 (1993).

In 2179, an EEV unit containing the four survivors of the conflict at LV-426: Ellen Ripley, Newt, Corporal Hicks, and the Bishop android crashed at the prison. After the crash an alien that was held in the ship was accidentally let loose in the facility, getting bred from prisoner Murphy’s dog. A Weyland-Yutani “rescue team” arrives on Fiorina 161 after the company was contacted by Francis Aaron regarding the presence of the Xenomorph, personally accompanied by Michael Bishop. Michael tries to convince Ripley to surrender so that they can extract the Queen embryo within her. Ripley chooses to sacrifice herself in order to keep the company from getting their hands on the Xenomorph and jumps into the molten lead. Following the events on Fiorina 161 in 2179, Weyland-Yutani terminated its contract, and the single surviving inhabitant was relocated. The remaining functional lead works apparatus was scrapped and the Fiorina 161 Correctional Unit was closed for an indefinite period.

Fiorina 161 is a barren, windswept world in the Neroid Sector, orbiting around a binary star system. The planet’s exact location is held secret by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation for security reasons. Its position can be estimated to 19.5 light years from Earth, hardly outside the border of the Galactic Nucleus. The soil on the planet’s crust is rocky and thin, and as a result of this, combined with the planet’s extreme seasons, very few plants grow on Fiorina 161, and the few plants that do grow grow in between the black rocks and are small, twisted, frail and brittle in nature. Fiorina is home to several indigenous species, although none of these lifeforms are particularly advanced. Several species of fish-like organisms live in the planet’s oceans, while the land masses support a genus of slow, primitive ground-dwelling animal. Due to the planet’s intense climate, large oceanic coverage and arid, desert covered landscape, Fiorina 161 was perfect for industrial facilities. Fiorina 161 was only known for its two establishments, an industrial lead smelting works and a Double-Y chromosome work correctional facility, both owned by the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.
