  1. But what really makes me wonder is the captains wheel on the Prometheus.
    How do they get the elves, unicorns and pixie dust underneath a standing captain on a glass-bottom bridge?


    Don't be silly.  The elves, unicorns and pixie dust do not physically hold objects to the floor...they create the magical field that permeates the ship, creating the artificial gravity.  Geez, everyone knows this.  :P

    But what powers the Prometheus engines, you ask?


     
    One problem..  You forgot to factor in the inertial dampeners.  No need to bolt anything down.

  3. I realize it is a pretty standard conceit, within sci-fi films, that futuristic spacecraft have magical anti-gravity systems (powered by elves, unicorns and pixie dust, most likely).  However, the Prometheus designers might have given some thought to having the furnishings physically bolted down.  Call me crazy, but I understand this is even done on most scientific and military ocean vessels  ::)
    Let it go, Deut  :P You'll enjoy yourself.
  4. Now you too can live all PROMETHEUS style!   ;)

    However, most cruise ships do not subscribe to this long standing tradition...and choose to be rebels of the sea:

    I also wondered about zeroG issues with the furnitures, but the Nostromo was also clutterd with stuff.
    At least the dipping bird didn't seem to mind the long travelling.

  6. The 2 real reason why the Prometheus looks slicker than previous Aliens movies :
    Scott is fed up with "grungy" Si-fi as he call it.
    The average audience (the main target) has no taste for old school designs.

    Now the whole "this is the best money can buy spaceship" angle works for me.
    As long as the designs look good to me.
    Those ikea table and that suite are a bit laughable.
    Hope it will work in context.

    I would expect the monitor inside the cocktail table to resemble something a little less high-tech.  Alien used simple, green-screen monitors that looked like they were from the 1980's and it takes place after Prometheus.  The cocktail table should resemble something more like this...

    I imagine the universe of Alien/Prometheus is as diverse (if not, more so) as our universe is here in real-life.  That said, it'd be kind of unrealistic for a mission like the Prometheus' to use the crusty technology you see in Alien.
  8. ... this might have been noted by others before, but doesn't the transparant tubes in the 'lab' shot mounted on the wall, remind of similar tubes in Ashs lab enviroment on The Nostromo?



    Great find! The lab definitely reminded me of Ash's little station on the Nostromo, but I didn't know it could be that specific.  Though the size looks different.


    A loooong time ago, someone, somewhere, discussed it here
    ;)

    That someone was me.  :P

    Look to the right of Fassbender, at the pink coloured objects behind him.  They're the same design as seen in the science lab onboard the Nostromo.

    Could somebody take a screengrab from Alien to show what I'm referring to?  The objects are visible during the panning shot at the start of chapter 12 (theatrical cut).  Thanks.


    I had to submit a load of duff info just to play this game, careful what you put on there if outside the USA guys.


    Could you help me out?  I live in the UK but the registration only accepts USA details!  What can I enter for an address/post code and phone number to fool the system?

    I wish that the people who design these websites would get a f**king clue.  Guess what?  WE DON'T ALL LIVE IN AMERICA!  Jeez.

    Finished the game, not a lot to do except find 2 words GENESIS and APOCALYPSE, also if you turn the power off to absolutely everything, a clue appears in the vault but I still dont know what to do with it lol.  Anyway one of those words (above) is very well hidden and both I suspect to do with Weyland, speaking of which, the answer to the question  to complete the game appears to be anything with his name in it... at least thats what I think!



  10. In fairness, it's one thing to differ from technology represented aboard an old tug and quite another to differ from that used on Gateway Station - and used at an apparently state-of-the-art hearing by Weyland-Yutani, themselves.
    We see one room in Gateway, and the inquest isn't held by Weyland-Yutani; there are different insurance companies there, and maybe a couple of government lobbyists. It's a legal proceeding. WY are there for obvious reasons. But that's not the point (and who said the hearing was state of the art?) -- We have to accept that, even today, technological consistency can't really be found when you go from city to city, country to country. Recently I was shocked when I went to my fiance's clinic - it looked like something out of the Soviet era, and it's barely a mile away from my own clinic. I take experiences like this into account when I'm faced with things like Prometheus-Gateway, etc. Likewise, I've sat in university lecture halls with top of the line equipment, and conversely in a small court room with a battered old projector. In the same year, too. I really don't think it's that far-fetched.
  11. I wish the complaints about the screens would end. The Prometheus and Nostromo differ for a reason, and it's not exactly far-fetched.

    If nothing else, they should have tried to use similar types of font and wireframe-type graphics.

    I can gloss over things like Burke's intercom being relatively low-resolution, because who knows how small the camera was on the other end? Likewise for the Marines' cameras. Maybe stuff like that was because of some new way to extend battery life.

    But nobody was ever shown making mass use of things like holographic displays, even on the Auriga.

    A few updated touches, here and there, are nice. Trying to sell something which is so radically different, wholesale, as being cost-effective enough to install on a spaceship like this, sent far, far away, but not closer to home many decades/centuries later? Even on what are clearly much later military vessels? It can be done, but it's going to make the previous films look really jarring when seen as a single continuity.

    It's like they didn't even make an effort to try and stay relatively in line with the very reality they're meant to be working within and just went, "F**k it, let's out-do 'Minority Report'." :)

    It's their choice! But it's going to make the very foundation upon which it's built seem strange. The more I see of this production, the more I get the feeling it's going to come across like something they should have just given up trying to link in any way with the franchise, rather than using it as an excuse to faff around with the Space Jockey mystery. Would've given them complete artistic and canonical licence to do the story however they want, then. It's not as if a completely new science-fiction project by this director wouldn't have sold just as well. Or just gone ahead and made it a futuristic sequel, rather than confining themselves in the historical precedent of a prequel prison.

    Not judging the film's quality in any way. I still hope to enjoy what there is. Just lamenting apparently missed opportunities.
  12. My take is that it's Peter Weyland suite not Vickers.

    The only thing that bothers me is the furniture not being attached to the ship, i mean those are Ikea tables and chair, can you imagine what happen to the mess hall glass table when the ship navigate a bit rough...
    Won't be important in the movie but its kinda throw me back design wise.

    Pretty sure the tables would be bolted down, or if not kept in storage during flight maneuvers, FTL jumps etc. They have a butler on the ship after all.

  15. Wow, everything looks so spectacular.  With all these new images lately, I don't know where to look...  "Oh shiny!... oh, oh shiny!!!!... oooh look at that shiny..."

    At the same time I'm getting a little nervous they might go overboard with the marketing.  Look how many images we've seen from the film already.  We've had the teaser trailer, the full trailer, the Wondercon/IMAX trailer and then all the viral marketing.  It's a good sign they're so invested in this film but I want to feel surprised by the time Prometheus comes out.

  16. Maybe this has been addressed already.....but that room with the bar and the couch...are we sure it's Vicker's quarters and we're sure it's on the Prometheus? The windows in that room appear to look outside in an earth-type environment.
  17. Yeah, the movie is still a few months away and they’re letting a lot out of the bag. 

    Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    The Verizon mini-game just reassured it. I almost wish the marketing would slow to a halt so there’s still some sense of mystery and intrigue left once the flick comes out.
  18. It will fall on the shoulders of a fella named Lindelof.
    Unfortunately, because it's trendy to hate on him... even though Spaihts did the majority of the script from what we know. And I doubt he'll pander to fan expectations (we've all seen the theories), so I expect plenty of people here to hate the movie, no matter how good it really is.

    Only thing that's doing the movie any wrong at this point is the marketing; they're really letting a lot slip through the cracks as of late, even here with the Verizon minigame, they spoil the fact that

    And with this over-marketing, fanboy expectations will grow and grow and grow until their isolated minds can't handle it anymore.
  19. Heck, she could pour me a shot of Space Tapir urine and I still would drink it with a smile on my face.

    Deuterium... Please, man. Not in front of the children.  ;D

    You know the one thing i'm also really glad to see making a return are the circular designs in the ship. That was something Ridley sorta had to fight for economically on the first Alien, because it costs more to design sets like that instead of building more square rooms. It's very much true to the design of Alien in that sense, too. :) I mean, it looks like a real place which I really like. Unlike some other recent sci fi films which felt like walking through an Apple store.
  20. This is what I guessed -

    Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    And it was the right answer apparently...

    I wrote "She is keeping someone or something onboard that no one knows about. Perhaps Peter Weyland."
    And it didn't verify it as correct :\

    What did it say for the correct answer?

    I wrote about her keeping Weyland on board the Prometheus - that was the correct answer.
  21. Hai this, dr. Lecter...




    Well played...
    Spoiler (click to show/hide)

    I have no idea where any of that came from. SORRY FORUMS.  ;D


    It's rather sad really, most of us don't even have to bother trying to "play" this thing. We reap the rewards of others playing it.

    Quite a head scratcher as to why they aren't making (yet) an official tie in game. Seems like it would make sense, anyway.
  22. Prometheus is a beauty. Inside and out. I love it. Love all the little elements hearkening back (forward) to Nostromo.

    Hell yes. I love the leather/vinyl padding all over the place. So 1979 ;P

    Now is it just me, or have they photshopped an iPad into this picture....

    Wha... why?


    It's probably some item you can interact with on the game :P. And makes me sad that I came across this hours ago and I still can't play it. Grr...
