So, was just at the Weyland website reading the time line. Not sure this has been mentioned, having not read the 44 pages of this thread, but did anyone notice the timeline has a mistake? The company develops bullets made from material found in another solar system a year before they introduce the first FTL exploration vehicle.
Besides that, I find the entire timeline ridiculously too short for the advances made. Ignoring that though, the movie looks like it will be awesome.
Tertiary material like this is meant to get you excited for the film and is meant to fill in the gaps a little bit. Errors aren't unheard of.
So this is like AvP, but better?
Its what AVP should have been the first place, presumably the missing piece of the puzzle.
