It shows the confusion the comics and video games cause. Here's an explanation on the regular Timeline page:

Sometime in the future...

Welcome to the most expansive timeline of the Alien films available. It is based on the four 20th Century Fox films: Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, and Alien Resurrection, their respective novelisations, and film production information from a variety of sources. It also includes some references from the Colonial Marines Technical Manual by Lee Brimmicombe-Wood.

The events concerning the Nostromo's landing on LV-426 take place in the period 2063-2123. The events concerning the infestation and subsequent destruction of Hadley's Hope and the Alien infestation of Fiorina 161 take place in the period 2127-2179. The events surrounding the destruction of the USM Auriga occur in the period 2325-2381. The Vehicles and Planets section contains information about the starships, ground vehicles, LV-426 and Fiorina 161. Astro-Cartography contains a maps based on the films. Due to Alien vs. Predators dubious canon status it has been included (for completeness) in a seperate area of The Banned Histories.

Novels and Comics

For the main timeline I've chosen to ignore the comics released by Dark Horse and the novels based on them. This is because they directly contradict the films (and themselves on occasion). Dark Horse released some a number of comics from 1988 onwards that followed the adventures of Newt and Hicks (and later Ripley) 10 years after the events that occurred in Aliens. When Newt, Hicks and Ripley were killed in Alien 3, reprints of the comic and book series changed the names to Billie and Wilks, and Ripley was made into an android. Many more comics and books followed. However in Alien Resurrection, General Perez points out that Ripley had effectively wiped the Aliens out when she killed the Queen Chestburster on Fiorina 161. Wren also says in reference to the Aliens; "Nothing like this we've ever seen on any world before." Therefore none of the events described in the comics and books can have happened as they are described. Novel and comic related material plus items from PC games can be found in The Banned Histories. The Aliens Role Playing Game has not been ignored, but provides no additional chronological information, and therefore has not been referenced.



The Ultimate Predator

Wasn't there one for this for Predator?

Corporal Hicks

If one regards AvP and AvP2 (and the Predator flicks) as true parts of the Alien universe continuity, and not some alternate timeline.  Which many do.

I would have to agree with yautja99, that is the true time line. Then again AVP2 has not come out yet so there might be some speculation as to where that would fit in. What if it takes place in between one movie or the other.
