Yes but sometimes they do become rigid  :laugh:

I voted yes. I don't want a wildly inconsistent universe.

I even used to avoid all EU because I couldn't consider it top tier canon.

But now I'm more laid back about it. As soon as you've got random eggs popping up on the Sulaco you've gotta let the odd thing slide.

Even if continuity ended up wiping out Alien 3 (ala Blomkamp) I think I could live with it and still enjoy Alien 3 on its own terms. If Romulus or Hawley negate Prometheus/Covenant I'd live with it.

I'm still not sure how Hawley's show would ignore the prequels explicitly. More doing his own thing without referencing them I think.

Ignoring the black goo, for example. Just as Ridley Scott avoided the Queen.  They're usually smart enough to leave things open. And then we have to try to make it work in our own heads.

Aliens existing pre-Alien, for starters. It wouldn't knock the prequels out of continuity, but it would retcon Covenant's intent in having David create them.

We still don't know if they ended up with that timing though.

Yeah presented like that, I'm all for it, but it's still very obscure for now.

No. I don't care about canon. Not really. I take each film as it comes. No point in trying to make sense of everything - you'll only drive yourself insane.
