Had this script made it, it would of made it so everyone would of loved Prometheus. I read it, and now understand the movie so much better, since they cut some the big things that explain what happened. The way fifield or whatever got bit by a bug, or changed because it was a animal that is suppose to inject something that changed our dna.
