At the start of Chapter 14 when you exit the ambulance/shuttle, the first thing you have to do is fight your way through the Seegon's security forces. You know, at the same area you first get to talk to a Working Joe and find your motion tracker.

Instead go against the objective and take the elevator up back to one of the very first levels and take a transit car to the Engineering Decks.
You already have your Ion Torch upgrade so you can easily cut through the panel and viola! you can now walk through that giant nuclear 'boom'  'boom'  room, and this time there are no Working Joe's with orange suits so you don't need to take them all out.
Then you can take the elevator down the Reactor Core and Amanda will have her  "Ricardo, coms are going dark" moment
You also still have your Flamethrower so you don't need to take the spare one lying around.

Unfortunately you can only explore parts of the Hive, you cannot interact with the Alpha Core or redirect power to the Central Core. You can encounter two Facehuggers that you can smash and 3 eggs that will open for you ( but 2 without Facehuggers oddly )  and one scripted Alien encounter that will automatically slip into a vent.

I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere else on the Internet. Anyone else tried this before?

I did, back when I wanted to explore the entire station. I could reach the room with the hazmat Joes, but couldn't take the elevator down. The game said it was out of service. I imagine that this is the reason nobody talks about it.

A similarly cool feature about the reactor core is that you can make it to the control room in it as early as mission 3. You just won't be able to do anything in it. When you arrive at the Systech Spire, just take the tram to Maintenance and you should be able to find it.

It's impossible... You said Chapter 14, but Chapter 14 is the Chapter where we discover the hive. And you describe a Chapter that seems to be the 16th, and yes in the 16th, we have an access of all of the station. But it's after Chapter 14... What you said is impossible, so what do you mean ?

Hmmm, it's been too long ago now to remember exactly what. All I know is, it's at the point where you still posses your flamethrower. It may have been Chapter 12 or 13.
