When Does the Movie “Alien” Take Place?

Well, the preproduction materials by Ron Cobb establish this chronology:

2076: US Tricentennial

2088: UK 7th Union

2102: UK joins United Americas(?)

2104: UA flag revised to current design

2115: Red Star Lines purchased by White Dwarf Complex

So, Alien must take place no earlier than 2115…

I have not checked the novelization for information.

The fan-made Alien Anthology Wikia places the events of Alien in 2122, using source material from Aliens as well.
