An SFX escape pod from Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel Prometheus.
Led to a distant planet by ancient wall paintings, scientists Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and Charlie Holloway (Logan Marshall-Green) join a corporate-sponsored mission to discover the source of life on Earth. But in the ruins of an alien space craft, the human explorers soon find that all is not as it seems, and a great threat lurks in its deep holds.
This escape pod was used in the sequence where Meredith Vickers (Charlize Theron) escaped Prometheus before Captain Janek (Idris Elba) rammed the Engineer’s ship. Several escape pods were present in the bay as Vickers changed into her spacesuit and strapped into her pod.
Made of fibreglass over an MDF frame, the pod features a detachable top panel in two halves, and a cushioned orange interior. Each side of top panel has a clear plastic view port installed that forms a single window when closed, with plush cushioned pads at chest level. Functional buttons adorn the exterior panelling, which is finished in ‘silver’ with black stripe detailing and the code number “EP-05.”
The paint finish is worn and distressed to simulate damage caused by landing on LV-223. The detachable panel features denting and marking from heavy use during production – the pod’s occupant would have had to push the panels apart to leave after landing. Because of this, each door sits slightly loose within the frame. Electronics are installed throughout the pod, including a series of lights, control panels and computer consoles, which remain functional. Featuring some paint loss and wear from use, the pod remains in good condition. Dimensions: 245 cm x 125 cm x 60 cm (96½” x 49¼” x 23¾”).
