Regarding Prometheus: going into the movie I was expecting the movie to lead into Alien movie, especially since the trailer misled us showing a Space Jockey ship crashing, to our discovery it’s not the same ship from Alien. The problem with the movie is that it is confusing, mostly regarding the Alien series, I could go a life time without knowing why the Engineers created us and then tried to destroy us. What I wanna know is, what happened to THE Space Jockey of Alien, how did he get infected, how did he crash, where did he get the Xeno eggs, where was he taking them? How is the black substance related to the Xenos, since we saw them create Xeno-type creatures. Not Xenos, but Xeno-type creatures. Most people, including myself believe the Engineers created the Xenos, which does make sense. Maybe the black substance is what creates the Xenos or the substance was harvested from the Xenos themselves. My friend who collected ideas that, like Scott said before decades ago, that the Xenos were probably used as biological weapons. My friend theorized that, proceeding Prometheus, the Xenos became uncontrollable so the Engineers abandoned them and moved to working on the black substance. Ridley Scott says he wants to make 2 more Prometheus movies.
But the point I’m trying to make is, I don’t think the Prometheus will end with the Derelict crash on three reasons:
1. Because I doubt Ridley Scott would end another Prometheus movie with a Derelict crash.
2. Because Ridley Scott said he doesn’t want the audience to know the ending of his movies being a prequel and lead into the 1st movie, like say The Thing (Prequel) where the Thing-dog escapes the burning Norwegian camp and goes to Kurt Russell’s camp with the chopper chasing it.
3. Ridley Scott doesn’t wanna do another Alien movie, he said it himself, he’s pretty determined that he wants Prometheus to have nothing to do with the Aliens.
Basically my theory is, the Derelict crashed before Prometheus. Scott even hinted that the ship was on LV-426 at the time of Prometheus, he said that the two ships on LV-426 and LV-223 were about the same age, “2000 years, give or take.”
I suspect that if we do get our answers as to what happened to the Derelict and THE Space Jockey, will probably get it in a prologue like the beginning of Prometheus or even in a holographic recording. I can picture Shaw and David’s severed head in a room with an Elder Engineer(s) as a holographic record explains the history of the Engineers, the Xenomorphs, the humans, and why the Derelict crashed and why the Engineers created us then tried to destroy us.
