The USCSS Prometheus was a Heliades-class space exploration vehicle built and operated by Weyland Corp and captained by Idris Janek. It was a revolutionary starship, and at the time of its launch was the most advanced and expensive faster-than-light space exploration vehicle ever constructed. It was billed as an official United States Commercial Starship in 2091.

Conceived and planned by Sir Weyland

USCSS Prometheus

Conceived and planned by Sir Weyland himself, Project Prometheus was Weyland Corp’s most significant initiative. Weyland named the mission in honor of the Titan Prometheus from Greek mythology, who stole the secret of fire from the Gods and gave it to mankind; now, Weyland returns the favor by giving his own gift of fire to the masses, one that will guide the company and its investors to the ultimate truth via the USCSS Prometheus.
