It seems to me that Alien Force and Ultimate Alien have a separate continuity from the original series unless it's convenient for the writers. But that causes trouble when you're trying to determine things. I don't think it's fair that the original series counts sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. That right there does not make any sense to me. Can someone please give me a straight answer? Does the original series count or does it not? It's a simple yes or no question.
