Where is Ryushi (AvP comic) located?

Tue 21 Sep 2021, 17:49

The original Aliens VS Predator comic was located at a planet called Ryushi (which seems to have been a W-Y cattle breeding colony). It's not mentioned in the rulebook, so... does anyone know where could it be located?

Ryushi orbits Beta Cygni / Cygni Minor which is a system located 430 ± 20 ly or 133 ± 6 pc away ... so it would be WAY off the map.

Amazing! How about the rest of the planets in the predator and AVP franchises?

It would take the same kind of web searches that I did.
If you know the names of the planets, web search them on Predator or AVP fan sites.
If you can match them to system/star names, then web search up the related stellar info.
If its on Wikipedia, then you can generally find a parallax distance.
If its not on Wikipedia, crossreference whatever system naming you have to track down the HIPPARCOS survey number.
The HIPPARCOS data has distances. Anything more than about 50l.y. or 15pc would likely be off the map.

The first pc AvP game featured Lv-426, so nothing new to add (although i kinda remember some kind of alien temple... it has no sense if the derelict crash-landed there). The second game featured LV-1201, but there is no reference in the xenopedia about which star it orbits, so i guess our only candidate is Ryushi.
