An aged Ford does not mean that he isn't a replicant with the four year kill switch turned off.

I watched Soldier (1998) for the first time a few weeks ago, which I was surprised to discover is considered a kind of successor to Blade Runner by writer David Peoples (co-writer of the script for Blade Runner).

Containing several spoken references to Blade Runner, apparently a Spinner vehicle can also be seen amongst the junk on the main setting for the film (I didn't spot it).
Never heard of it, but a few seconds googling (image search) has revealed Russell's character fought on the Shoulder of Orion.

The four year kill switch can't be turned off, even if the creator of the replicants / god of biomechanics could save their life by doing so (or at least buy themselves some time).
Ford could play an artificial person built to the same spec but without the kill switch engaged in the first place, a la Bishop.

I've seen Soldier many times and it's pretty good, but that image references Tango & Cash, Escape from New York, The Thing, Stargate, and Blade Runner. So is Soldier a maybe sequel for all these films?

Or, indeed, Rachel.

They should make a spinoff about Gaff.

There's also references to the battle of Tannhauser gate made during the film.

And I'm guessing a nod to Aliens with the 'USCM smartgun' reference. (Drake and Vasquez operated these.)
As for the spinner...

I don't know about this.

I think the original was the sort of film that didn't need a sequel and wasn't designed for one.
