Following clues to the origin of mankind, a team finds a structure on a distant moon, but they soon realize they are not alone.
Rafe Spall later appeared in The World's End (2013) which made reference to the Alien franchise. It also features humans revealed to be androids, one of which was Martin Freeman, who shares the role of Bilbo Baggins with Ian Holm from the original Alien (1979).
When Elizabeth has the alien "fetus" removed by using the "Pauling Med-Pod", she breaks the umbilical cord which is still internal, thereby leaving the "placenta" in her abdomen. This alone would probably kill her, causing her internal bleeding. However, as this was not a "traditional fetus" (as David described it), it is questionable as to whether a traditional placenta had even formed. Even if there was a placenta of some kind, it is still possible for women to have a "retained placenta" even after a C-section which can later be expelled from the body naturally or with the assistance of medication.
The opening credits take place throughout the Engineers' scene on Earth.
