Prometheus focuses on the origin of life, boosting a rich storyline centered on the human cast trying to discover the nature of their creation. Two archaeologists discover ancient paintings that reveal the location of a star-system galaxies far away, with the allusion to some sort of greater being. Believing the system shown might be the galaxy of their creators, they journey there after receiving funding and a ship called the Prometheus. The supposed creators are referred to by the cast as the "Engineers," and believe them to be a superiorly advanced race that engineered the our species. Once landing on the planet they discover they may not have found the answers to the origin of human life, but perhaps the answers to the end of it.
