Alien chronology... is wrong?!


May-26-2017 5:36 AM

Prometheus happening in 2093 year. I saw this date is movie.

Alien Covenant happening in 2104 year. I don't remember - was showed year in movie or not, but it official synopsis.

Alien 79 happening in 2122 year. BUT! Time is not showed in movie! Alien there is no time reference! Wikipedia don't nave  information about time/year too!

And I remember that Aliens/3/R movies there is no indication of time/year too. Aliens just happened form 57 years after Alien, but year don't showed.

Then... we don't have 18 years beetwen AC (or later time-line sequels) and Alien79! Alien 79 maybe happening in 2256, 2367 or later. Doesn't matter!

Your thoughts?

P.S. Sorry for bad english.

No. Fan wikia and article in magazine (mb based on wikia) is not competent source. Need official words.

Where did the date 2122 come from?

I did watch a video on youtube talking about the clip where one of the crew is talking to mother and on an earlier VCR release which was a directors cut did have the date year. Although it was edited out later(not sure why). I can't find the video now though but I will try to find the reference.
