So I just finished watching Prometheus (midnight showing on the west coast), and one thing is bothering me, did Ridley Scott retcon "Alien?" The ending of Prometheus does not have the space jockey in the chair that the audience sees it sitting on in the beginning of Alien, but rather in another ship altogether. I'm wondering what you guys think of this? Am I over-analyzing the ending or did Scott mess up the ending to Prometheus?
...or, was that scene inserted by the studio? Sorry, that thought just popped into my head.
