Based off of the unused Vincent Ward "Wooden Planet" script for Alien 3, Arceon is a small wooden satellite occupied by techno phobic monks. The EEV from the Sulaco crash lands in the lake on top, and Ripley finds herself stranded.

Nice concept art.

Still, I am glad they did not go with the wooden planet. It always reminded me of something straight out of Futurama.

Even if "space-monks on a wooden planet" isn't a good idea for an Alien film, I think it could make a pretty solid standalone sci-fi film. I'm thinking "directed by Terry Gilliam".

So glad that they didnt use this for the alien 3 movie, wooden planet wouldnt work for the alien series which is more real life science, even star wars death star feels more real than a planet made of wood. Cant protect the people onboard from radiation or the vaccum and make it work with FTL technology and the idea of monks and a lake on the planet, no I dislike it.

It had a metal machinery core that generated gravity,
I like the concept and Vincent Ward's script a great deal.
Aside from the Wooly Alien and some problems here and there.

But you're right in the establishment of such a structure doesn't
have any logical basis within the script,  for a group of outcasts
monetarily it doesn't make much sense it's more- Sci-Fi Fantasy
Alejandro Jodorowsky the Incal idea.

Ultimately for the tale Alien presents;
I believe the Refinery turned Prison / Monastery much more.
