You mean RT-01? It's a Roving transport. It was documented on the Weyland timeline

http://www.alienprequelnews.com/2012...ows-links.html

In 2051 we find a mention of the RT01, obviously the first generation of the vehicles seen in the Prometheus trailers marked as RT02:
"RT01 GROUP TRANSPORT : Weyland Industries makes essential updates to on-planet transport. The new vehicle is capable of traversing any known terrain and has virtually no weight limit for cargo, passengers and equipment."

lovin the production design.

So has it always been known that Alien takes place in 2122? I was always under the impression the dates were kept pretty vague in the Alien universe, but clearly I wasn't paying enough attention.

In "Aliens", Ripley makes mentions that Burke sent the message to the LV-426 on I believe 06/12/79. So taking the year as being 2179, and Ripley having been frozen for 57 years, the events of "Alien" take place in the year 2122. So it does seems Scott is paying some respect to what canon Cameron established in the series.
They apparently get along very well, Scott even mentioned to Cameron that he should direct the Prometheus sequel while discussing the new movie with him.

^ That was an April Fool's Joke that blew up over last weekend (Cameron isn't directing a sequel).

Cameron made a off hand joke about it on the red carpet for Titantic which was taken out of context. Still he and Scott apparently talked about Prometheus, specifically toward VFX and 3D film. It was in reference to those discussions that Cameron made the joke about Fox needing to wait a while, i.e. after he was finished with the Avatar sequels, if they wanted him to direct it.

That would be hilarious and I now want to see the Prometheus version, where that is the big reveal.

The studio that handled the 3D conversion for Titanic did some work on Prometheus (some shots, only a couple, apparently turned out poorly enough that they needed some conversion work done), which I'd imagine was the source of their conversation.

Ha ha, yeah, apparently so.

And as a David myself I can't help but find it amusing that my name is apparently a good fit for creepy, expressionless androids who look like they could snap and strangle you at any moment. First the little kid in A.I. and now this.

Really liking the look of this film...glad to see Ridley isn't a slave to his past.
