On the upside, having it in an RPG means the GM and/ or players are free to ignore the stuff they don't like.
However I suspect baseless garbage like this will get picked up by other media if they use the RPG as a sourcebook, rather than the films.
And ultimately this whole 'WY owns and runs everything', beyond having no basis in the source material, is just creatively boring.
Imo this whole WY exploitation border itself to; -If the franchise are capable of possibly invent something else, or at least something that don’t include WY? Theme is overused to a point of being repulsive in over shadowing original creations.
ICC and WY are RPG exploitation fluff because the original films didn’t throw out enough usable bread crumbs. WY has become something of a Alien signature and is already heavily embedded in the mind of the alien community due to the over-exploitation.
Company conspiracy was a signature in the first movie although the line between company SOP and conspiracy is a fine line exploring scripts and plot.
In the second movie it was personal motives of a WY employee and has noting to do with the company.
As I understand that the theme of modern ‘conspiratism’ in the US (and half of the internet sic.) had its roots in the tumultuous 1960’s stemming from the JFK assassination and a heavily drinking president (Nixon) that feeds on fear of the unseen, but one would have to do a lot of “begging questions” and confirmation biases to get to where WY is today if only relying on the second film.
By contrast A3 was a huge shake n’ bake production and catastrophe in movie history. It did exploit the idea fully something that made W(h)Y and bio-weapons a concept benchmark. Though its still regarded much as “?” in more artistic Alien circles, that is if seen as a sequel at all, and thus the first spin offs in the series. Also it killed off the original franchise of the original four part Ripley’s anthology [?] (A3 Hicks story, A4 Ripleys return) that was never to be.
This said the Alien company big brother theme was however supported and in a way the main objective of the producers (Giler/Hill - that do have a respectable share in what we all love) who was to include WY as a main (antagonist) actor in the future Aliens 3 and 4 (as described above, though participation in the 4th is unclear).
Cameron himself an avid perceiver in that the corporation whose whole organism is based on the profit of capitalism working the profit as a tool of war competing against other corporations something that cost human life, is not avoiding the big brother concept either (though not affirming the future exploitation of WY by producers). A bit can be observed in e.g. Avatar. A film that by script I see as a metaphor for his own extension of the Aliens universe (there are lots of parallels). However this latter WY “big brother” development stage is not presented in the second film, but unfortunately would in a sequel similar as seen by the “failed” A3 attempt.
The ICC issue was just a glimpse of the (US/UA) bureaucratic colonization system showing an investigation hearing deciding if officer Ripley was responsible for the demise of some millions, insured or not. Nothing else.
Now problems are that any public product that involves economy is forced by public demand to oblige even if public demand is based on a misconception or exploitations. Any one new to a source of experience wants to feel the kick again, franchise or not.
As everything else The Alien franchise just transmutes into something new for each iteration of exploitation like Bram Strokers Dracula ‘Vampire’ concept or …Star Wars(?) and I believe FL has done the best job to date to bundle most of it up. The deepest horror of an Alien/s conservatists is when Disney or whoever, wants to spawn [spam] a new generation of fans and makes a re-make, something that possibly is un-avoidable. Then we’re all in a world of s***.
In my personal case I just cross over parts that don’t fit my vision or the story development concept as far as Aliens -86. For me WY is just like any other of several dozens of companies/corporations participating in the fronteer colonisation process. Yes, they are briefly seen in my campaign contracted by the ECA for some job but nothing more.
