*** To be fair though, there was also plenty of debris falling from the sky. Vickers and Shaw would have been at risk no matter what direction they ran.

* FlippingTheBird: Milburn and Fifield give each other the two-fingered variant while stranded. Given how both characters are British, this little detail was a [[ShownTheirWork rather nice touch]].

There's also the fact that even if it was determined that there was no risk of biological contamination FROM the environment, there's still the very real possibility of biological contamination TO the environment. The human body is constantly host to all sorts of nasty viruses and bacteria, most of which is kept in check by our immune system and other natural defenses, so those microorganisms don't usually have a noticeable effect on us. We've adapted to their constant microbiological onslaught through eons of evolution, but whatever might be living on LV-223 would almost certainly not be. Hardly the best first impression to make when you want to initiate peaceful contact with an alien race.\\

DroneOfDread: The trailers made great use of the [[HellIsThatNoise infamous]] siren from the original ''Film/{{Alien}}'' trailer.
* EarthAllAlong: Actually averted. Many viewers presume that the prologue with the Engineer takes place on Earth (with humans being the offspring that resulted from the Engineer ingesting the pathogen), but [[WordOfGod the creators of the movie clarify]] that it doesn't necessarily ''have'' to be, as the scene is more or less there to show that seeding life on planets is what the Engineers have done since ancient times.

It should be noted, however, that [[spoiler:this creature is '''not''' the first Xenomorph, as evident by the presence of the murals and the gut-burst corpses of the Engineers]], but it does clearly establish that the movie is an ''Alien'' prequel.



* SequelHook: [[spoiler:Shaw's departure for the Engineers' homeworld, as well as the Deacon creature in the final scene]]. In connection to the latter, the alternate ending for the film has David reveal that [[spoiler:the closest word we have for where they came from is "Paradise"]]. Current rumors point to this being the name of the eventual sequel.

* StealthSequel: Although the film is set before the ''Alien'' series, Scott has said that there are possibilities to expand the universe in other ways through the events that occur in the film. The film is set on a different planet (LV-223), and focuses on the "Space Jockey" race from the first film: The Xenomorphs and Weyland Industries do get notable references, but the focus is clearly on the "Engineers" and their connection to humanity.
