    Didn't pick up on a connection between the flute and the accordion, but that would be very interesting to hear elaborated on a bit more. I will say, however, that I really liked the use of the flute. Thought it was really cool, and my appreciation of it will likely only go up once I learn a bit of the symbolism (I'll admit that I'm a bit fuzzy on many aspects of Greek mythology).

    I like the anti-theft device of the ship, a flute.* 



    *wtf

    In brief (and I think this deserves it's own thread) the musical instruments of Prometheus are quite on purpose. The Engineers flute activating the ship and Janek's accordion are parallels to be sure. (Not to mention his selection of "O Come, All Ye Faithful." Which ties into the film quite nicely.

    Greek Gods Apollo, and Dionysus, are associated with music and of course ORPHEUS, whose music had the ability to cause inanimate objects to move and influence the forces of Hades.

    It's not a suit, it's his body

    I like that their pressure suits (to help them endure a 2000 year hibernation) are woven/grafted/implanted/grown right into their own bodies. This Giger concept has been around before he ever touched Alien. Makes me wonder how he was compensated this time around.

    I wonder if Engineer's suit is actually some biomechanical enhancement, so the Engineer can adjust his proportions as he needs.. Thus solving the 79' and 12' Jockey difference :)

    The illustration of the Engineer with its bio-mechanoid skin is fantastic. The movie doesn't show enough of the detailing of the merging of the biological and the mechanical . I always thought it is suit

    Man that jockey looks so much better than what we got.

    My thoughts exactly.  It looks far better than the Jockey design in the film.
    I agree 200% too. Since Alien and Giger's Biomechanics works were not meant to be part of this plan. :'(

    How come concept art always looks better than the movie?
    Because it's cheap to accomplish and requires just one guy who knows what he's doing as opposed to a whole team of people who may or may not know what they are doing attempting to work together under a crushing time limit.
