101 Years, Weyland-Yutani 2078 to 2179
Ingeniero a pleasure to read so much information related with Alien universe, Mr. Weyland is still an unknown subjetc for everyone with big potential and wasted by the franchise.
Very true Roger55.
Weyland Industries expansion throughout the solar system and during the time of Peter Weyland's development of David up to the Prometheus mission leaves a whole lot of story to tell.
Thank you for saying that Ati.
sherris asked me for a timeline in regards to the manic approach to topics I take jumping back and forth in-between centuries to give context. I was happy to do it.
Ok, I can't wait one more day.
Can anyone please tell me what year the Covenant mission left Earth based on the Alien: Covenant Origins novelization?
This is a great source supporting the Weyland Industries corporate timeline, see below.
"Dates for the events in Covenant are based around the December 5, 2104 date mentioned on screen. Walter says they have 7 more recharges over the course over the next 7 years and four months. This equates to around 11 months travel time between jumps, meaning the Covenant left Earth around January 2104. Ricks says it’s ‘a few weeks’ to Planet 4, however the number on a blurry and pixelated video screen appears to say ‘2 weeks’. Supporting this data is the Covenant novelization saying that Daniels had been in hypersleep for months; not years. More details regarding the Origins novel cannot be released at this time."
The above calculation is also very respectful of those not wanting to walk into spoilers from the prequel novel. We might need ground rules on that from admin and others. I'll respect spoiler-free wishes.
This analysis above also reconciles with the Alien: Covenant novelization.
"Woozy from months spent in hypersleep, she..."
