Edward Davis. Somewhere in that development process Ridley Scott changed his mind and felt he needed something less direct. Here is what we learned from reading the script and paying deep attention to the commentary track featuring Spaihts and Lindelof. One version of his script had the explorers discovering a star map under water. Though Spaihts says there were several versions of this scene, his favorite was cut for budgetary reasons: it was a submarine expedition in the Mediterranean, at a sunken city. On the commentary track he explained they found a giant tablet with a starmap on it.

A group of scientists led by Jocelyn Watts and Professor Martin Holloway find evidence of humanity's creators on Earth, meet with Peter Weyland and travel off in search of their creators on a ship called the Magellan.
