I don't know if Ridley and Damon mentioned that but....As many of you I've been thinking, that prometheus's scenario happen before Alien. Well, I watched Alien 1 and didn't found any mention of year. Then I watched Aliens - again no mention of the year....BUT. Ripley slept 57 years. And guess what.......she never heard about terraformation and she never heard about atmosphere processors, which are well described at the Weyland Website. If you take a look here you'll find that first terraformation was made on our moon and it was finished in 2039. Which means Alien 1 was bfore 1939 and before Prometheus.
So....if this is a scenario mistake, then why did they paid so much attention to terraformation on the website, wich is absolutely not mentioned in the movie?
Looks like Weylend was inspired not only by Shaw's speaches :)
In Alien and Aliens, it's Weyland-Yutani, not just Weyland...not that any timeline help is really needed.
Interesting idea though.
That's what I said :). Ripley wakes up in some year after 57 years of sleeping and she never heard about terraformation. Wchi means Terraformayion was invented in this 57 years span. And 2039 must be in this span too, according to wetland industries web site. :). Which means Prometheus events happen AFTER Aliens.
Weyland-Yutani could be some consortium, like Sony-Ericsson.
Anyway. Firstable I thought it's just a scenario hole, a mistake. But why to mention it on the website? No one even remember this thing, and they described the whole process and made a map of colonized planets....I think it's another one promt. Besides....who will invest trillions of dollars in an proposal,based on an ancient cave painting. Nooo....Weyland knew where they fly to, cause at the moment they already had the information, which was sent from Nostromos bord computer.
The recieved radio signal, forced Nostromo to get there, get the evidence of 2 lifeforms, one of them is minded (SJs), sent the Prometheus.

ripley4president said: K_Price85 said:2179 is the date of Aliens.But where is it established? Everyone just seems to be quoting each other.
Exactly. The only source is the "Alien timeline", but it sucks comparing to Weyland's website and simple logic. Besides, it's hosted on Alien Vs Predator website only, a movie, which Scott litteraly hates. I wouldn't trust them.
The MTV.com "Interview" is here, but the "30 years" statements is referenced to Deadline.com, where I didn't found any mention of that. Which means the only source for now is that Interview, which is not an Interview at all...
Can any one imagine some reason to dedicate such a big section to Terraformation on Weyland's website (WIth colonization dates)?
