    1. Hm. The first icon is a mask. I assume it represents the large humanoid alien. So, is this saying that the liquid he drank CREATED humans? That’s not in the movie I saw.

      The second set of icons makes sense. The liquid came in contact with that one dude and turned him into some kind of mutant.

      The third set makes sense but I don’t remember what chick it infected to create that squid thing.

      The last set makes the most sense, hense the burst chest of the giant “space jockey”.

      I guess I should go see it again.

    2. The opening of the movie showed the empty, barren earth before life existed. He drank what was presumably the same liquid contained in the bio-phials contained in the egg-vase and began to disintegrate to the molecular level.

      We’re meant to imply (due to the zoom-in of the DNA and such) that these molecules were guided to evolve into the complex chains of amino acids > proteins > RNA > DNA etc. that would eventually progress back to themselves.

      This race gave up on us for an unknown reason and set out to destroy us (possibly due to a failure in the evolutionary experiment – perhaps we didn’t return to a satisfactory version of their form, in their eyes). They changed their mind, though the one in the movie obviously was unaware.

      My theory is that this liquid was meant to be a type of panspermia that would be able to generate their master race anywhere in the galaxy, but that the coding was imperfect.

      When a human ingested this, it didn’t dismantle them as it should have, but rapidly mutated them on a genetic level. Before this could set in, the guy got his girlfriend pregnant, passing along a genetic code that the Engineers never meant to exist (hence why, even though the human form of the male was lost, it still survived).

      I’m assuming that because the evolution was guided that the mutated genetics were still guided towards a direction that could be SUSTAINED, thus viable as an individual entity capable of survival.

      This sole creature developed the ability to asexually reproduce to protect its survivability. Eventually, this species would develop much in the same way: a singular alien will convert into a queen and lay the facehugger eggs that implant an egg into a host that will assimilate its DNA to generate a form similar to itself but wholly xenomorph.

      It connects to the AL|EN series but also stands completely alone and has the potential to spin-off into sequels completely unrelated to AL|EN at all.

      • Sounds pretty solid.

        I’m not certain that the planet in the beginning was barren. I think there was some vegetation.

        The thing to remember about the engineers is that the ones that we have seen so far seem to be spreading life for one reason or another. It could be to study it, and once the experiment reaches a certain point, stop the experiment.

        An obvious reason could be for the production of weapons. The zombie dude was very hard to kill. A planet of several billion hard to kill berserkers makes for a pretty powerful force. If humans were meant to be incubators for xenomorphs, you would have again, several billion of them. Sure, the engineer has to die for this to happen, but that may be culturally acceptable. A fleet could show up later to harvest the resulting planet of bioweapons.

        The other possible reason, which I think I saw on IO9, was that the engineers were doing the bidding of some other race, perhaps one that they view as gods.

      • That’s an insightful synopsis, but why are you assuming that that planet is Earth? Nothing points to or leads you to believe it’s Earth. I believe it is LV426 when there was water on it’s surface.

        Think about it: why would the Engineers create something to wipe out the human race, (for whatever un-revealed reason) place it on a planetoid, in a structure, light years away, and hope humans find it? If that was indeed Earth, why not just leave it there, where humans originated, ensuring that it would be found?

        LV426 looked different in the first movie, (Alien) why couldn’t it look different in Prometheus?
