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 Aran's Gunships (in both games) 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.
- The Hunter-class gunship designation likely originated from the Nintendo Comics System, which called Samus' ship the Hunter IV. It was stated to have been built at Hyrodyne Shipyards, Hyrodyne Shipyards, Altair V.
- The name of the planet resembles Alien3, acting as another connection between the Metroid and Alien franchises.
