chris says: Yes, strong similarities with "Alien" , also directed by Ridley Scott of course. But as Alien is one of the greatest sci-fi/horror movies of all time, and as Ridley Scott is one of the greatest directors of all time, I for one have no objection to an updated re-working and cant wait to see it!
As far as i could make out, that was not the same crashed ship as in Alien. For some reason it was transporting flasks instead of eggs? Also, after the crash the 'Pilot' left the ship, so the command seat of the Alien ship would of been empty? As for the plaque depicting a fully developed Alien? I don't know where that came from, or why the pilot inccubated a protoform Alien? More questions, than answers i'm affraid. Must say i enjoyed 'The Thing' prequel much more.
