Appearances in the following;
Aliens: Colonial Marines
The W-Y FTLs are used by Weyland-Yutani personnel on LV426 and appear in the levels Derelict Reclaimed, Home and Stasis Interrupted, with the level Home being played aboard the last FTL spacecraft and part of the level Stasis Interrupted being played on Weyland's W-Y FTL.
In the last level Home, after clearing the cargo bay of the Alien Queen, Cruz, Bishop, Hicks and Winter find Michael Weyland aboard who they interrogate but accidentally kill.
In the level Stasis Interrupted, Stone is killed by Weyland and Levy a Weyland personnel decides to side with Hicks who he releases and then are tasked with escaping via an EEV. A short journey to the surface of LV426 which leaves the EEV in flames but surviving there next task is to reach the communication array in the part built facility not far from the Derelict.
W-Y FTLs only appear in the Aliens: Colonial Marines campaigns. Although these spacecrafts are similiar with the Sulaco they are shorter and are capable of descending and landing on the surface of a planet unlike the Sulaco or Sephora. They are configured with their cargo bays in the aft area near the engines and are lightly armed as they are used for scientific research.
Michael Weyland after being shot and killed aboard the W-Y FTL was seen bleeding white blood, this then suggested that the developers were implying that this was the synthetic clone of Weyland who himself appears in the game but in an earlier level.
It is shown in the level Stasis Interrupted that Weyland was talking to Ripley in the film Alien 3 and not Michael Weyland. After Ripley dies, Hicks and Stone are captured and brought aboard his W-Y FTL and not the USS Patna as in the film Alien 3 which doesn't appear in the game.
Areas of the W-Y FTL:
The events of the game Aliens: Colonial Marines are set between those of the films Aliens and Alien 3 but diverge from the film Aliens and over lap the film Alien 3.
