WOW. This film was a breath of fresh air and a great restoration of the Alien universe. The franchise took an early hit...
Holloway regards the mission as a failure because the Engineers on the planet are all dead. This, however, makes little sense, as it's obviously very unlikely that this was the Engineers' home world. Additionally, his work has directly found conclusive proof of the existence of advanced intelligent alien life, found preserved biological specimens of that life to examine, and working advanced technological artifacts from their culture including writing, art and still-working information technology. The mission had been a massive success by any metric. That said, Holloway could be considering it a failure in that he wanted to meet the Engineers and interact/ learn from them directly.
The opening title appears in the piece-by-piece fashion of the original Alien (1979) movie.
