Q
Given how deep it sounds like the lore rabbit hole goes with this, are there any mentions of places like Vega 4/New Shanghai, San Drad, Ryushi, Bunda or any other locations related to the AVP side of the Alien EU?

No.  The license was Alien/ Prometheus only and the bible that was used as one of the sources didn't contain any AvP locations.


The RPG references Odobenus Station, which is from AvPClassic.

Thanks for the responses. I figured there probably wouldn't be any locations from AVP due to licensing but thought I'd ask anyway.

That's interesting about there being one from AVP Classic though. Wonder if they were just able to slip that in without anyone noticing?

Huh. Bet no one saw that coming.

That's the only one I caught, there might be others that are just mega-obscure.

An issue I stumbled across re-reading it recently, one part says Fire & Stone/Life & Death/& (by extension) Titan's Alien Trilogy happened mentioning the state of LV-223, the Onager, and the Aliens brought to the planet, saying the Alien is susceptible to the Pathogen but then in another part later on it says certain hives contain the Pathogen, created by the Aliens themselves, it's suitable the Alien is the only thing that's able to control it but it totally contradicts the aforementioned stories.

It already outed The Rage War by saying the Alien is unaffected by the vaccum, it's clear the contradictions only mount with time in regards to the aforementioned stories, just out them from canon and give my head peace.

Ignore what you don't like and don't worry about what's "canon", and you will find peace. :)

Also perhaps it's a different Pathogen, or some kind of variant/mutation of it.

It's like the blood orgy scene from Event Horizon.

Got curious and started looking at the star charts in both the new RPG and the old Leading Edge RPG. There’s a pretty good amount of overlap, with some stars and sectors even being in (roughly) the same location on both maps.

I kinda wish the new RPG had managed to include every planet from the old RPG (the old map isn’t that extensive, and the new map has a lot of open space) but it’s pretty cool that it includes what it does.
