Is the area with all the xenomorphs in the missing derelict in the same place as on an Engineer ship? I thought they might be the same because it has the big gun-like star map found in Prometheus.

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean. I'm assuming (from the title) that you're asking if the ship in Aliens is an Engineer vessel but I'm at a loss what the rest of your question is driving at. – Valorum Apr 11 '16 at 22:35
  • Poor quality question, however I do get what you're saying. – Möoz Apr 11 '16 at 22:54
  • @Mooz Maybe you could edit it to make it clearer then? I'm with Richard here - can't understand it. – Rand al'Thor Apr 11 '16 at 23:16
  • Also, I think the OP is referring to either a video game with a mission called "derelict", or the first movie (Alien), not the second movie (Aliens). – Wad Cheber stands with Monica Apr 12 '16 at 5:58
  • @WadCheber - The OP tagged it as "aliens". It's also worth noting that the crashed ship in Alien and Aliens is the same vessel. – Valorum Apr 12 '16 at 10:51

Yes, the derelict ship on the surface of LV-426 (in Aliens) is indeed an Engineer ship. In the film "Prometheus" and its accompanying literature, we learn that these types of ship were part of a entire class of vessels known as "Juggernauts" which the Engineer race used to explore the galaxy.

Several near-identical vessels are seen in Prometheus, along with the one that the titular ship rams.
