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).
Despite being set 30 years before the events of Alien, the technology available to the crew on board the Prometheus seems to be far more advanced than anything seen in the 1979 movie. However, the Prometheus is a state-of-the-art science vessel, whereas the Nostromo is simply a cargo towing vehicle that does not require as much high-technology (it would be like comparing a fishing trawler to a nuclear submarine). By the time of Alien, the Nostromo is clearly an old ship. It could well have been made even before the Prometheus was.
The opening title appears in the piece-by-piece fashion of the original Alien (1979) movie.
