That always bugged me about Charlie Holloways reaction to finding some dead Engineers. I remember thinking as I watched the movie in the theater, "You've got more temples to explore you dumbsh1t".
I see Holloway is getting a unanimous dislike for his behavior here. I can understand it and I respect your taste. For sure, finding an Engineer, even dead, is still a big step in the field of discovery for mankind and being happy about it is more of a an adult way to apprehend the situation. He could also, as you say Mustangjeff, be patient and give it a try on the other pyramids, and why not, on other places of the moon.
He surely imagined a completely different destination and he probably felt there was nothing there. The disappointment was so big that his rational part sliped away.
I don't mind how he reacted on a personal level, he is coherent with his character of great integrity, like taking off his helmet, saying to David he is ready to do everything and anything, suiciding to prevent the crew of contamination (even if it is too late).
It is also coherent with Damon Lindelof's phrase of ''not responding to 'safe' in writing''
There were 3 or 4 temples on LV-223 that were never explored. I'm not saying there is anything different in any of the other temples, but you never know! Clearly Shaw and David had to go into another one to get to a fresh Juggernaut.
I imagine the other pyramids also being places to experiment and give birth to goo related creatures, with other species than we saw in the first one (human and pre-Xenomorph species, head between knees).
But it could be something different, yes. Still, Shaw's heading to Paradise by saying :''There is only death here now, and I'm leaving it behind''
. Is it a quick assertion or they checked more the place to reach this conclusion ?
It would be a kicker if the ship they took off in had a few Engineers in Cryo along for the ride.
You are talking about some hidden cryotubes then. If I were them, I would carefully check no one is on board, given the slight dispute that occured in a recent past !
