If there is any reference to the Engineer ship eventually ending up on LV-426 for The Nostromo to stumble upon, I expect that scenario to be suggested in the hologram montage David is watching. The Sacrifice Engineer taking off in that ship to quarantine a very dangerous cargo on a remote, barren world and issuing a warning beacon as his last act.and what If the eggs were already stored there in the Acheron moon?, there's still the possibility that the Derelict wasn't transporting the eggs, and that the chamber underneath the dead jockey was a cave were they had It in store.
A direct reference to the derelict as part of the ongoing plot in Prometheus, would imo be waaayyy to convoluted (and against anything Riddles and Damon has stated on the subject)
I sincerely can't see how the Derelict can have such a huge underneath chamber bellow the pilots room. Also, we have to remember that the Derelict was parked..., so?, what the hell was that jockey doing there?, creating those eggs somehow?
As Eva said, its possible that the sacrafise engineer after being infected flew to an isolated planet and then parked the ship before being killed by the chest burster. The chest burster then grew and eventually laid the eggs before dying itself.
That makes no sense. First because for now there are no eggs in lv-223 to get infected from, and second because If that engineer would have got infected right there in the temple, then I guess he should have had some aid from his mates and removed the alien inside. If this last not, then they could have very well killed the alien emerging from him, or just killing the engineer directly. Jockeys should have plenty of tools for doing such things.
I'm starting to think the jockey dead on the Acheron moon went rogue or something and fled with something belonging to the temple. No way he got infected while having his team mates at his side.
He arrived at the Acheron and then got infected there imo.
Still think the egg chamber was in fact a cave, and the now dead jockey was loading them onboard the Derelict.. Then something went wrong with the stasis fields in the cave and the mess started. I mean, If you pay attention to the image when Kane descends into the cave, then you can see how ALL the eggs in It are already opened and lying down on the floor but those of course under the last remaining stasis field. The jockey dude in the derelict had to deal with thousands of facehuggers I'd say, not just one.
