Weyland Corporation: Building Better Worlds.Hello, friends. My name is Peter Weyland. I am your employer. I am recording this 22 June 2091 - and if you are watching it, you have reached your destination, and I am long dead. May I rest in peace. There is a man sitting with you today - his name is David - he is the closest thing to a son I will ever have. Unfortunately he is not human. He will never grow old and he will never die - and yet he is unable to appreciate these remarkable gifts, for that would require the one thing that David will never have: a soul. I have spent my entire lifetime contemplating the questions "Where do we come from - what is our purpose - what happens when we die?" And I have finally found two people who have convinced me they're on the verge of answering them: Doctors Holloway and Shaw - if you you would please stand. As far as you're concerned, they're both in charge.The Titan Prometheus wanted to give mankind equal footing with the gods - for that he was cast from Olympus. Well, my friends, the time has finally come for his return.
Final report of the vessel Prometheus. The ship and her entire crew are gone. If you're receiving this transmission, make no attempt to come to its point of origin. There is only death here now, and I'm leaving it behind. It is New Year's Day, the year of our Lord, 2094. My name is Elizabeth Shaw, the last survivor of the Prometheus. And I am still searching.
Look, I'm just a geologist. I like rocks. I love rocks! Now, it's clear you two don't give a shit about rocks. But what you do seem to care about is gigantic dead bodies. And as I don't really have anything to contribute in the gigantic dead body arena â€¦ I'm gonna go back to the ship. If you don't mind.
I think there might be some confusion about our relationship. Weyland found you impressive enough to fund this mission, but I'm fairly certain your Engineers are nothing but scribblings of savages living in dirty little caves. But let's say I'm wrong, and you do find these "beings" down there: you won't engage them, you won't talk to them, you will do nothing but report back to me.
Ummm, Miss Vickers, is there an agenda that you're not telling us about?
What did he say, David?
I don't think he'd want me to tell you.
What did he say?
I'm sorry - [she slams him against the wall, as he calmly continues speaking] - that's confidential.
Oh my god - I will find the cord that makes you run, and I will cut it. What did he say?
He said â€¦ try harder.
I don't want go to back to where we came from. I want to go where they came from. You think you can do that, David?
Yes, I believe I can. â€¦ May I ask what you hope to achieve by going there?
They created us. Then they tried to kill us. They changed their minds. I deserve to know why.
The answer is irrelevant. It doesn't matter why they changed their minds.
Yes - yes, it does.
I don't understand.
Well â€¦ I guess that's because I'm a human being, and you're a robot.
