Does anyone know the name of the planet (the Engineer Homeworld?) where the crew intercepts the radio signal when on their way to Origae-6?

I think I read somewhere that it is called Paradise, but I can't find anything official.

There is no name for it.

enter image description here

Aside from a code-name, which identifies its sector and region, it has no name. From the wiki:

As the crew repairs the damage to the ship, they pick up a radio transmission from a nearby unknown planet.

What you may be thinking about is the movie's description:

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world.

Edit: From SynthNorbert's answer, I've actually checked the soundtrack and it mentions the planet as being Planet 4. How accurate this information might be, or whether this is just a generic description (like, it's the 4th planet from the sun in that Solar System), I cannot tell. But it is yet another denomination for the Engineer's home planet.

  • What was the code-name? Just curious. @BlueMoon93

  • You can barely see it in the image, below Unknown Planet. 9722-3298 or something similar. I don't have an HD version of the image, so I can't be sure

  • Thanks, I will accept this as the correct answer until there is new information. May 28, 2017 at 18:52

I remember before it zoomed in on the Engineer planet, you saw a few others planets nearby. And they were labeled as, what looked like a "C" followed by a 3 digit #, much like LV426 (Alien) and LV223 (Prometheus).

I'm assuming they're how the human race sort where planets are, in correlation to Earth.

There's nothing further I can particular add to what's already been said other than to say that the planet is referred to as 'Planet 4' this is apparent from both the soundtrack that has a track listed under the name 'Planet 4' but also when Ricks gives his designation of the planets coordinates to the rest of the crew after they intercept the radio signal he refers to the planet as being located in Sector 87 noting it has 2 moons before saying:

'Planet number four is square in the habitable zone. Prime candidate in fact. Zero point nine six G's at the surface. Oceans. Landmass. High likelihood of living biosphere. It's beyond your most optimistic projections for Origae-6.'

You can find further information here: http://avp.wikia.com/wiki/Planet_4


If you look at the soundtrack, you'll see the planets classification is Planet 4.

    Hi, welcome to the site. Perhaps you can add a link or image to the soundtrack to help enhance your answer?
