Just reread the old Cinefex issues. Seems like the model was never broken. The gash in the hull is a separate enlarged miniature, and the wide shot is a matte painting. The only time the derelict model is used is in some pov shots from the Jorden vehicle

Every sequel to anything that adds additional context's a retcon.
I think he means in the sense that we already had two perfectly good explanations for why the beacon didn't work in 'Aliens' and the game went ahead and made up a third. :P

I'm absolutely willing to give it a pass though because the Derelict level in Alien Isolation was fantastic.

I'm waiting for some future source to integrate all three into the narrative, revealing that Dallas shut off the beacon off-screen in 'Alien' and a redundant system kicked it back on, which was shut off *again* in Alien Isolation, but was kicked back on again, and then shut off *for good* when volcanic activity damaged the Derelict. :P

I... I think I'll just go with Isolation's depiction.
