The USCSS Patna is a Conestoga Class Starship that was used by Michael Weyland to travel to Fiorina 161 to collect the Queen embryo from Ripley. After failing to obtain the Xenomorph specimen, Michael and his team head off to leave the planet, bringing along Fiorina 161 prison's sole survivor Robert Morse for relocation.
- Though the Patna was not named onscreen, the name came from an early script and the novelisation. The name derives from that of other ships in the Alien series from the novels of Joseph Conrad, in this case, Lord Jim.
- What we see of the Patna arriving in orbit around Fiorina and on the surface was a re-use of the Sulaco model with added detailing to it's port side.
