Well we only see the Hangers in Prometheus for the purpose of those Ships taking off.... However indeed if the Engineer Juggernauts need the Scorpionaught which actually is referred to the Mother Juggernaught ... if they need these to Dock and Land then why are there none on LV-223 or that we dont see.
The other thing is as the Juggernaught approaches the Hanger in AC opens up and the Scorpion Ship moves in to intercept and then Dock with Davids Ship.
The Scorpion Ship is larger and no way will it fit into that Hanger, so this Hanger is meant for the Juggernaught.
What is the the Scorpion Ship? I have to wonder as with a number of Flaws with this movie and how it never follows established Lore of previous movies.. IS did they even know or Plan for what purpose the Mother Ship Docking Ship had?
Or did it just LOOK COOL.
*The Docking Ship cant be needed to Bombard a Planet so we can assume, as otherwise why are there no Scorpion ships seen in Prometheus... the Engineer leaves for Earth... but what was he to do if he lacked a Docking Ship to allow for the release of the Cargo....? Crash Land it?
Nope this cant add up, and if the Docking Station had the Purpose to Activate the Urns, then those Engineers/Beings would surely had been concerned and not interested in greeting the incoming Juggernaught.
So the Docking Ship is a Mystery...
*Did David guide it to the Docking Ship? But why? its not needed to Bombard them surely.
*Did the Docking Ship automatically pull in the Juggernaught as some kind of Safety Procedure? Is this like Passport Control, Bag Checking when you are leaving a Airplane etc..
*Is the Docking Station unmanned?
If it is Manned maybe they would be welcoming those on the Juggernaught as the Juggernaught connects to the Docking Ship with the Part of the Ship that has the Entrance to the Juggernaught.
so yes this is a Mystery and Interesting one at that...
I would assume maybe a few Engineers are on this Docking Ship and are set to welcome or inspect the Ship, but David unleashes the Cargo no soon as it Docks..
If this is the case, maybe those on the Docking Ship or if its unmanned maybe a Automatic Function then does something to cause those Bodies to be Burnt up, as a way to Stop the Infection? The process of this Safety Device sends the Juggernaught crashing?
If its Manned then maybe those beings on board initiate a Weapon that Neutralizes the infection by a Energy Weapon, and also it causes the Juggernaught to Crash..
These being then leave Paradise on that Docking Ship to go to their other Worlds to Warn the others of what has happened... this is a way to tie up loose ends for the sequel.
