Alien unfolds in 2122, and James Cameron’s Aliens begins in 2179, after Ripley’s been in hibernation for 57 years. Prometheus: Fire and Stone is set in January 2219, over a century after Dr. Shaw’s disastrous voyage to LV-223. This is a nice way of ensuring they can mostly steer clear of the events of Ridley Scott’s eventual Prometheus sequel, especially since it seems unlikely that that film would return to LV-223.
