the prequel takes place about 30 years before the first movie, in 2085. Weyland-Yutani doesn't exist yet, but Weyland, pre-merger, does. And it's very much in the terraforming business. Adds Scott:

It's fundamentally about going out to find out 'Who the hell was that Space Jockey?' The guy who was sitting in the chair in the alien vehicle - there was a giant fellow sitting in a seat on what looked to be either a piece of technology or an astronomer's chair. Remember that? And our man [Tom Skerritt as Captain Dallas] climbs up and says "There's been an explosion in his chest from the inside out - what was that?" I'm basically explaining who that Space Jockey - we call him the Space Jockey - I'm explaining who the space jockeys were.
Not something that I ever thought needed explaining.
