** The Engineers, who already possessed faster-than-light ships, had already had contact with the Yautja and considered them "bad guys". Reason: not only the Yautja hunted the Engineers (evidence: a Space Jockey helmet in a trophy room in ''Film/AliensVsPredatorRequiem''), but they stole their technology as well (evidence: the very premise of ''AVPAlienVsPredator'', as well as a Predator command chair in ''Aliens Vs Predator: Requiem'' that looks like a Space Jockey command chair). The engineers decide to reach a distant planet (Earth) and create humanity.

C) Anger at his father for dying. We know that Peter Weyland has a massive fear of death, and this was probably the origin. Also, his father was already dying of disease before the events in AlienVsPredator that took his life.

* Given that larval xenomorphs take on some of the characteristics of the host (as seen canonically in ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'' and semi-canonically in ''Film/AlienVsPredator''), it is likely that the Engineers designed their initial biological weapon to be highly adaptable and versatile; the classic xenomorph was the result of the base weapon passing through two humans, an Engineer, and probably another human, whereupon it reaches the form we all know and love. This also explains the discrepancies between the xenomorphs' appearances in different movies; a variety of hosts causes slightly different morphologies.

** Except the ship seen in Alien has, as pointed out by the characters, been there for a LONG time, and has a dead Engineer in the pilot seat, not Shaw.

Think of the Forerunners from {{Halo}}. But unlike those benevolent progenitors, these creators are prepared to actively exterminate even their direct descendants to contain this biological threat. No hosts may be permitted to leave the moon. As suggested above, David's translation skills were not quite up to par

[[WMG: The process we see at the begining of the movie is the Engineer version of terra forminf a planet]]

to:

\n* In that case, Shaw could easily be a descendant of Scully: they're both [[PintsizedPowerhouse tiny]] [[TheDeterminator determined]] scientists with strong religious faith that adversity only seems to deepen. They're also both saddled with partners who think their faith is a load of crap (though Mulder is much more subtle about it than David).

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Humans and the Engineers really are genetically identical]]

Related to the above WMG, the analysis the Prometheus crew did on the Engineer really was accurate, and humans and Engineers do have identical genetic profiles.

The reason why the Engineers nonetheless look like 10-foot, black-eyed, albino bodybuilders, rather than normal humans, is actually due to extensive post-natal biomodification. All of their technology seems to have a biological basis: so, for example, instead of building night-vision goggles and other sensor systems like what's built into the crew's exploration spacesuits, they replace or mutate their own eyes; instead of making exoskeletons like the one Weyland uses to walk, they use hormones and viral gene modification to give themselves massive physiques.

If the average person was given the same suite of modifications and medical care that the Engineers received while growing up, they'd look like Engineers too.

**** Given how the "Happy Birthday David" video states that David is an ''8th Generation'' Android, that would suggest 7 other generations before him. Depending on how long a generation is in Robotics and Cybernetics, that would probably be ample time to have some kind of robotics in 2023.

Depending on how long a generation is in Robotics and Cybernetics, that would probably be ample time to have some kind of robotics in 2023. Perhaps that last, 7th generation of Androids were the "Nexus-7" type seen in ''Blade Runner'', technically making David a Nexus-8?
