WHY are some people assuming that, just because the new movie is a prequel, this new Alien movie will be about Space Jockeys or even Ripley?? If you didnt get it in the original movie then you obviously wern't watching, soooo, do yourselves a BIG favour and read the book by Alan Dean Foster. CASES IN POINT... Space travel has obviously been around a long time.... NOWHERE is it stated no one had seen the Alien Ship before it was only assumed, but it WAS stated that ship has also been on the planetoid a very long time. Read between the lines people theres BAGS of scope for this.
