This is a picture from "Top Secret", a games magazine from Poland published in 1989.

Some of the pictures in the magazine they drew themselves. But many others were just cropped pictures from movie/game posters. I believe this is also a cropped/modified poster. They used it as a background pic for an "Aliens: The Computer Game" (1987) game but I don't think this is a ship from Aliens. I googled Aliens' posters and no match.

There is some rectangular blocking in the picture because I removed game-related info.1

Here is a cropped image of just the spaceship:

    I wonder if it’s concept art that never became a movie prop Apr 9 '21 at 15:00
  • @ToddWilcox I don't think they had access to anything "exclusive"

    That specific mis-drawing of the spaceship's underside is ringing alarm bells, but I can't dredge up the specific memory.

    Maybe it's supposed to be the salvage ship from the start of the movie, or some version of Gateway station.

    I've taken the liberty of adding a closeup of just the spaceship. Feel free to revert the edit if you don't want that. I can swear this was in Omni or on a book cover.
