Scene 1

  • The camera pans across a dark planet as the credits slowly form at the top of the screen, one line at a time.
  • Then we cut to a commercial towing vehicle, the Nostromo, traveling through space, its towers looking like some kind of space-faring Gothic castle.
  • With some obvious Star Wars envy going on, the ship flies over the camera.
