Looks like it will be great. We'll finally get some answers on the "Space Jockeys." :thumbup: All we've had so far was the brief scene in the first film. There has been some info filled in with the books. But as that's a separate storyline it doesn't count for the "canon."

One thing I want to know is what happened to whatever burst out of the pilot. That thing had to be around somewhere. It's a shame we won't be seeing any Xenomorph because it would be an explanation. Or maybe we'll get some indication that this is where the Queen came from and that it was in hibernation somewhere else in the ship until the planet was settled in between the first and second film. Which seems to imply "the company" knew what was going to happen even before they put people there. Like it was all a plan they came up with.

A scene from Aliens more or less confirms it when Ripley says she read the report Burke made about sending people out to the derelict ship.

Prometheus may retcon this to be true. If not we have the implications given from the Nostromo's computer and Ash the Android.

What if it were true?

That's an interesting theory about the "Space Jockey" Chestburster, WarAngel. My only question would be which eggs actually hold the Queen Facehuggers? Are there specific eggs for those? If so, then maybe it could have been a warrior alien that was in the Jockey, hibernated on the ship, then grabbed a colonist and immobilized him/her next to a Queen egg.

In a scene cut from the original film Ripley find the alien's lair with Captain Dallas glued to the wall and one of the only guys decomposing into what looks like an egg. I remember reading that the scene was cut because they wanted have a queen alien and this would somehow take away from that.

So whatever burst out of the Space Jockey could have been a regular alien that morphed into a queen when it sensed that no other was present. It then goes dormant until the colonists showed up. Probably sent there on purpose to get use as hosts. I hope Prometheus at least hints at that.

That isn't why they cut that scene though. Ridley said it had to do with the flow of the movie. It wasn't even known there would be a sequel until James Cameron began talking about it in 1983...four years after the first movie.

There are fan theories that both reproduction cycles are used -- Queen laying eggs and also aliens transforming dead bodies into eggs. It's the only thing that would make sense now, given the release of the cut scenes; just means the aliens are even more versatile/difficult to deal with.

In the commentary on 'Alien', Ridley said that the Space Jockey was going to use all those eggs as a means of biological warfare on some planet. Perhaps that planet was going to be Earth, and humans end up thwarting the attack -- could be why you see the Derelict crash with the humans trying to run away from it at the end of the trailer. It makes sense with the tagline:

"They went looking for our beginning...what they found could be our end."

You make a good point. :think:

I found this while looking at the Xenopedia article

Set in the late-21st century, Prometheus will explore the advanced civilization of an extraterrestrial race responsible for the origins of modern humans on Earth

Looks like we'll get a variation of the Ancient Astronaut Theory. :thumbup:

Yep....the good ol' mastermind of the silver screen is digging deep on this one.

I don't think I've ever been quite this anxious waiting for a movie to come out. :crazy: 😀

Here's the new full length trailer. I didn't embed it because you can't click on full screen view when it's embedded (why is that anyway?). This has to be viewed on full screen:

Pure awesomeness. :dance:
