Though, dampeners didn't prevent the Nostromo from shaking around crazily when landing.

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.

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.

;D    Good find, Lars.

A brief note on the set pic...

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.

Oh, and this came to my mind:

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.

Holy shit. I loved the shot of the landed Prometheus. And the interiors are fantastic. Though I admit, the chandeliers took me off guard.

I love how the front/top of the ship has a shape similar to the design of the Narcissus.

This ship itself has Ron Cobb written all over it

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.

... 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!

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.
