Exactly How Old Is Ripley & Alien Storyline?

So Alien 4 takes place 200 years after the third Alien movie. And after the 1st movie, Ripley is asleep drifting in space long enough for her young daughter to grow up & die of old age....

Ripley would then be easily over 300 years old (if you still count her as a clone).

If all this is in the right context then it seems Weyland & the military have wasted alot of time trying & failing to integrate Alien technology into their own...

I would say she was in her early 30's at the end of ALIEN then you plus 57 years a drift in hyper-sleep in ALIENS.

We do see the failed attempts during the lab scene. But who knows when they started, while they had the Ripley's alien-mixed DNA 200 years prior, the technology to try might not have been available until recent.
