*** [[spoiler: Not so important for that, since the Engineer didn't seem to care about what David said. But it was still important, earlier, since it allowed David to open the doors from which it went wrong]].

*** 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.

*** The entire Fifield affair just reeks of idiocy. [[spoiler:As pointed out above, the guy in charge of ''maps'' gets lost. Then, rather than call the ship that has a '''huge holographic map''' of the very place he is lost in (and clearly the communications were not affected by the storm), he just lets himself get lost. Then, rather than follow up with the smart plan of "let's all get away from the strange alien body", the two return to this '''same''' room, and bunk in a room with containers dripping mysterious black goo, although there were clearly better options. Options that as the cartographer, you ''should'' have known about.]]
*** Fifield was in charge of the ''devices'' the were ''creating'' the map. There's no indication that he has actual access to a map. Why do you think that it was those still at the ship who were seeing it?

** Let's see, the film takes place at Christmas, constant shots of Shaw's crucifix, musings on Christianity, and an infertile woman having an immaculate conception. [[invoked]]

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: [[spoiler: Averted. Janek, the TokenMinority, survives until the climax, while Fifield and Milburn are the first to die. Notably, when Janek ''does'' die at the end, it's the result of a HeroicSacrifice that he planned himself. Incidentally, the black dude sacrificing himself is a common occurrence in the ''Alien'' franchise; in fact, ''Aliens'' is the only movie that doesn't feature it.]]

** Did anyone stop to consider that maybe the aliens might be hostile?[[note]] Yes they did, they even brought guns and flamethrowers just in case. Unfortunately for everyone else involved, the guy who funded the exploration and the two scientists he says are in charge of the mission don't allow their use.[[/note]] While it is true that there was peaceful contact in the past, they don't consider that maybe there was a reason it stopped. Everyone seems to think that their arrival will be met with fanfare, that Contact they'll be greeted heartily and all their questions will be answered.

''Prometheus'', a 2012 science-fiction film directed by Creator/RidleyScott, serves as a semi-prequel to 1979's ''Film/{{Alien}}''. This film marks the end of Scott's thirty-year abstinence from the science-fiction genre (1982's ''Film/BladeRunner'').

A team of scientists and astronauts set out on the research vessel ''Prometheus'' to unravel the mystery of the dawn of mankind. They seek the Engineers, an alien race who may be humanity's creators; scientists Shaw (Creator/NoomiRapace) and Holloway (Creator/LoganMarshallGreen) believe they have uncovered an "open invitation" to find the Engineers within a reoccurring star pattern found in several ancient human writings. The team soon learns that the location is far from welcoming… and that what they've discovered could endanger the entire human race.

** Shaw and Vickers don't consider [[spoiler:running ''out'' of the path of the falling spaceship instead of in the same direction it's crashing in. Shaw only gets the idea when she trips and finds herself about to get flattened. Vickers wasn't even that smart]]. [[http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2012/06/13 Noted]] by ''Webcomic/PennyArcade''.

** Let's not carry anything to defend ourselves on our first expedition onto the planet we just found and know literally nothing about the plants and animals. Even if it's a scientific mission, why is Shaw not overruled by Vickers when she tells the security guy to ditch the flamethrower.
