What is the purpose of the holograms in Prometheus that show what the Engineers did 2000 years ago? (Apart from the fact that they were used as a story telling tool)

Was there any reason in or out of universe for having this on board the Engineers' ship?

    I imagine it's either a captain's log, or a security feed. – Joe L. Dec 19 '16 at 9:19
  • Sorry, clarification here- which holograms are we talking about? The navigation ones or the ones with the guys running or all of the above? – Broklynite Dec 19 '16 at 11:58
  • @Broklynite, all of them. – KyloRen Dec 19 '16 at 12:32
  • Second, the security log idea. That would be the only logical explanation unless someone survived and created the logs deliberately. Which would kind of a strange act. – Mark Rogers Mar 25 '17 at 1:56
