Ok i hawe few questions about horseshoe ships.

1. Why engineers leave their ships idle or buried somewhere all the time? Such a advanced nation should hawe task forces to retrieve their crashed ships as they not able to destroy. Is it in their culture or caractheristics to leave their advanced tech stuff around all the time?

2. We talking about race who create other races, hawe control over star systems so whh there is only single engineer ship all the time. Why no fleets or recovery mission ships for fallen ones.


3. Horseshoe ships armor. As i see in prometheus its not possible to destroy  horseshoe ship. What its made from? If its diffirent ki d of metariel why engineers didnt use it even as body armour and get killed all the time.

Like LV223 is a very distant outpost for humanity, it is possibly the same for the engineers. A very Forward Operating Base to experiment, weaponize and stockpile the black goo pathogen to use against Earth. The few ships out that far are likely just a vanguard to their homeworld armada.

The material for their ships is a grown organic.

1; Major biohazard outbreak, there'd be some beacon set off, or an automated emergency transmission sent back to the higher up engineers command base and that world would be Hands Off.

2; There's five buildings there, the Hypermutagen wasn't the ONLY thing they were making there, count on that.

3; Budget limitations of movies limit how many ships can be shown, also scriptwriters have a lot to do with what we see, etc..

4; They weren't expecting to be attacked. Imagine if one of your own nation's warships pulled into harbour, folks are out to greet it...and it suddenly opens fire with it's entire arsenal?

*Man's giant leap was just a stumble in the dark.*

We have concluded before that the ship's structure is somewhat "organic" in that it is grown. Think of it as something like Von Neumann replicating automata. Of course, the ships weren't even aware of David and Shaw while they were on the Juggernaut, so they are probably not "intelligent," like MUTHUR is.
