If we look back at the Engineer sacrifice at the beginning of Prometheus, the mote swarms similar to what was seen in Alien: Covenant are visible escaping.

The Engineer takes from the cup and the black goo consumes him while releasing motes from every opening.

The Engineer hits the water at the base of the falls and breaks apart down to the DNA level from the black goo infection only to be rebuilt instantly in new form.

Beautiful opening.

I can definitely see why Ridleys comments would get u thinking, I got me thinking for a moment as well. id still say for the plot it would be earth. though a thought, maybe the opening scene is planet 4, and those who seeded earth were their offspring? a weird way for the engineers to procreate AND seed worlds after a point in time where they have grown tired of sacrificing themselves?

David 8's comments on the Engineer's ways certainly makes me think there is much more to their horrible existence ali81.

That is another reason I'm excited about next month's prequel book release. It was a little hypocritical for David 8 to point a finger with his compassion record but I can't wait to find out what David 8 knows of the Engineer's ways.

We might get an answer as to which planet was shown (and where it is) on the opening of Prometheus too.

Hello. I think the sacrificial engineer at the beginning of the Prometheus is Prometheus from myths. he created the human race, gave us knowledge, science, religion and for that he was sentenced to death on earth for what he created against the will of engineers - the titans, they was greater. they gave himthim drink black goo to disappear, dissolve his body. at the beginning of the movie you can see that this engineer looks at the departing ship, that sadness and how he drinks black goo wonders what will happen to him. it's the same goo that David dumpedat the planet in the Covenant. and the title alien may have once lived on earth long ago, created by engineers, also a hybrid of engineers and some form of life from the earth. arose these giants and cyclopians, terrible creatures that devoured people after them can be the dinosaurs. engineers decided to create black goo to kill these creatures and forbade further research and creation of life on earth but Prometheus objected and created people. engineers decided to destroy the work of Prometheus and kill people 2000 years ago, but they themselves fell victim to goo or other invaders who did not want the death of people. david wants to finish the work of engineers and kills beings like humans in the covenant and also wants to destroy. David is pride and wants to create life, but he is forbidden so he creates the perfect essence of the hybrid of the beast from alliance and robot. gives the alien armor and bio suit that the engineer has to survive in all conditions. in white gloves decides to destroy people just as he destroyed creatures on the planet from the covenant. sends gives to the earth about a stranger and the company Weyland Yutani is interested in investigating the stranger without knowing what they are dealing with. David knows that aliens will win people.

I think the Prometheus connections are Multiple, such as other Mythos that is Connected to the Movie.

Overall the Context of a Prometheus, such as a Satan or God is to NOT be placed down to a Single Entity as with the actual Mythos/Religion but it maybe is to Connect to a Group.

It was kept Very Ambiguous as to HOW the Mythos could Connect, but the MAIN ELEMENT at Play is Forbidden Knowledge and HOW it is that Knowledge is a Powerful Tool.

The other MAIN ASPECT is about Going against the Wishes/Intentions of the Hierarchy/Leader/Gods and the Fear they have about Losing Control and the Punishment they are willing to INFLICT to Maintain this Control or upon those who have BROKEN the Rules.

To TRY and Connect HOW/WHO is the Figure of Prometheus in the Franchise is Tricky as with the Ambiguity we could look at many Possible Explanations.

The Closest Indication we have is RS saying the Big Head Statue is Prometheus.  But is this in Context to a Single Engineer, is it the Engineers in General or a Faction?
