Hey. Hey, hey.

Come here. Take a look at this.


- What is it?

- It's a data stream from PS12.

- Where is she?

- Right above sector 14.

There isn't anything in sector 14.

There is now.

- Hello?

- Miss Woods. Pleasure to speak to you.

- Who is this?

- My name's Maxwell Stafford.

I represent Weyland Industries.

- Let me guess. He's suing us again?

- You misunderstand.

Mr. Weyland has offered to fund your

foundation for a year, if you'll meet with him.



Tomorrow's gonna be a problem.

Take me a week to get back to the world.

Yes, I told Mr. Weyland that.

He said he didn't have a week.

We must be right on top of it.

What is it, Sebastian?

The burial chamber is here.

I know it. We are gonna find it.

I know it too, but without a crew

and a permit we're out of business.

Hold the team together for two days.

I'll go to Mexico City and I'll talk to the bank.

I'll get us more money.

I might be able to help you

accomplish that, Professor.

Do I know you?

In exchange for a little of your time.

Oh, I'm sorry.

I should've switched the flash off.

There's your magazine. Excuse me.

That's OK.

I'm documenting the trip for my boys.

This is them.

Jacob and Scotty.

Would you mind taking a picture?

Thank you.

Just wanna show them

that their dad wasn't always so boring.

- Smile.

- OK.

- There you go.

- Thank you.

I'm Graeme Miller. I'm a chemical engineer.

Alexa Woods,

environmental technician and guide.

- Do you work for Weyland?

- Oh, no.

No, I split my time between working

for a small environmental group

and taking scientists

on expeditions on the ice.

Lex. Buckle up.

We're gonna hit some turbulence.

Thanks, Jack.

- Is he a friend of yours?

- Of my dad's.

He trained most of the pilots here.

- Just passed the PSR.

- Oh, damn. I wish I'd got a picture.

- Of what?

- The PSR.

I wish he'd called it out before we passed it.

The PSR is the point of safe return.

It means we've used up half our fuel,

so we can't turn back.

Right, but if something went wrong,

we could land, presumably.

- We could ditch.

- Yeah. Ditch.

But the temperature of the water

would kill us in three minutes.

Welcome aboard, everybody. Please.

Some of you may be wondering

why this team has been assembled.

Your host will give you the answer now.

Mr. Weyland.

Seven days ago, one of my satellites

over Antarctica hunting for mineral deposits

discovered a sudden heat bloom

beneath the earth, which outlined this.

The red lines indicate solid walls.

Through thermal mapping, we've generated

a three-dimensional image of the structure.

It's massive, containing hundreds of rooms,

all built around a central core.

My experts tell me it's a pyramid.

What they can't agree on

is who built it and when.

One expert tells me this has features

reminiscent of the Aztecs.

Another tells me it's probably Cambodian.

What they all agree on is that

the smooth side is definitively Egyptian.

- I think your experts are right.

- Which one?

- All of them.

- Meaning what, exactly?

This pyramid contains

the features of all three cultures.

This might be the first pyramid ever built.

- But built by whom?

- By the first civilization.

Thank you.

But how could anyone possibly

build a pyramid out here?

Ancient maps show Antarctica free of ice.

- It's likely the continent was once habitable.

- I can't tell you who built it.

But if I could take a sample from it,

I can tell you how old it is.

Dr. Miller, I'm offering

to put you right next to this thing.

- What caused the heat bloom?

- I don't know.
