Aliehs III is home to the Federation Shipyards' main facility, referred to in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. It is the location where Samus's Gunships (specifically, her iconic Chozo Gunship and her custom Chozo/Federation hybrid Gunship) and both the G.F.S. Olympus and Valhalla were built. The Federation Shipyards are also referred to as the Federation ship yard and the Federated Shipyards.
- In the non-canonical Nintendo Comics System, which called Samus's ship the Hunter IV, her starship was stated to have been built at Hyrodyne Shipyards, Altair V.
- The name of the planet resembles Alien3, acting as another connection between the Metroid and Alien franchises.
