My gut says it's Alien related, but in order for Ridley to get cash and the Studio to make money, The Alien side of it is getting steered well clear of publicly.

The Alien is a joke now; I doubt it'll be seen in its familiar form.

Indeed, the Space Jockey is just a name given to that particular entity outside of the film itself

Well F***... this situation has gotten to be absolutely ridiculous. Now Ridley's reporting otherwise? Why can't we just get the epic Alien prequel we've been tortured over?!

...I sure hope he's saying this simply so we're all pleasantly surprised in the theater.

my bet is that the jockey could be the 'engineer 1' character we've heard mentioned before.
so perhaps the jockey's are actually known as 'engineers'. I could be way off though :laugh:

I've been trying to link the giant "head pilot" to the jockey, since it was commonly referred to as "the Pilot" .

Not come up with much yet, other than the giant telescopic piece attached to the chair may or may not be something to do with it. All very interesting.

I actually enjoy this part more than the reveal.

They said ages ago it wasn't an Alien prequel.  What's changed?

Predator 2 has a xenomorph skull in it but we don't call it an Alien film because its part of the Predator franchise.  Alien has a space jockey corpse in the film even though the film is clearly not about space jockeys.

With that logic, you can't call Prometheus an Alien film just because there is a dead space jockey in the movie.  If it's about jockeys, then its also the beginning of a new franchise and/or stand-alone film.

There is your logic right there.

...the thing is, Scott started it in the first place, and he DID say it would be a prequel "set 30 years before Alien" to quote his words ...personally after seeing Robin Hood, I've lost all interest anyway

No ones calling it an Alien film. It clearly is not. It apparently has links to the franchise of which we are fans and may provide back story's. That's enough for me to be interested.

The pilots ship was responsible for 2 full length tales about the Alien. I'd say it holds a little more weight than "dead stuff was in it"
