I realize this is a fictional, hypothetical...ALTERNATIVE time-line...but
Weyland Industries introduces the first FTL-capable SEV (space exploration vehicle).
January 17, 2034
That is approximately the time when we "HOPE" to have a sustained, manned presence on the Moon...and before there is even any optimisitc estimates of a manned landing on Mars. Sometimes, REALITY SUCKS !!!
I know this would have thrown off the canononical "time-frame", but they should have pushed everything 100+ years into the future, starting with the first "Weyland" innovation/discovery/invention.
