Does anyone know if they will be giving an explanation behind the Space Jockey - which I believe to be the most facinating creature in movie history.

Its kind of f-upped since I want to learn more about it but I know what ever explantion they give will not live up to the hype and msytery the original movie gave it. May be they should never explain it but I doubt Ridley and co will be able to resist the temptation!

Probably not.

And why do you want an explanation on it? What's there to explain? It being left in ambiguity is way more fascinating then what would be told of it.

The one thing I would like to see in this prequal is the alien that came from the jockey, you know the one that killed the creature in the chair.  Maybe it was a Queen I dunno, but it could gave us something different if you accept the alien is based on the DNA of the host, plus it would also explain why it wasn't present when the Nostromo crew arrive years later....

^ That's the plot I'm guessing the prequel to have. A crew finds the downed ship and wakes the hibernating Jockey-Alien... whatever the hell that may look like.

Depending on the xeno's size, the film could have the same basic story as the original Alien, only with a slightly different creature design.

In original script it was present. I think Ash was supposed to see it outside the Nostromo for a while.

If they make it at Weta - it'd be messuv.  And if there was lots of them, they'd be messuv made on Messuv.

There even was a picture of space jockey-alien attached to one of the mountains outside derlict. I think that  it was what Ash was supposed to notice.

I've never heard of any Jockey Alien photos. Anyone have them to post?

I would prefer the Jockies or "Biomechanoids" to remain in shrouded mystery.

I'm sure there would be some mentions of the space jockey. Keep in mind how hard Ridley fought to get it in the movie.

Maybe a reference, but I'm glad the story doesn't revolve around it.
