The Class D crew escape module, also know as an FTL crew escape module, was a self-supporting evacuation vehicle developed by Weyland Corp for the purpose of secure and sustained detachment from its parent vessel.


Exclusively designed for FTL crafts of a suitable size, this emergency sustaining pod is an embedded safety module comprised of 7 luxury-appointed rooms, complete with independent navigation and piloting controls. Reclaiming decontamination system allows one occupant 50 years of breathable air with or without hypersleep.



Class D crew escape module WSS001 served as Vickers' luxury suite aboard the USCSS Prometheus, which stored a holographic background screen, a small bar, and a medpod, as well as a piano and a crystal chandelier. Shaw removed the trilobite from her body in this module at one point in the film. Later, when Vickers escaped the Prometheus, her lifeboat detached from a panel on the ship, and crashed on the surface of LV-223. Afterwards, Shaw went back for equipment, armed with a hatchet. She was attacked by the last Engineer before setting the trilobite on it, whom subdued the Engineer. Later, an alien creature was born.

The USCSS Cronus, being of the same class as the Prometheus, also possessed a FTL module. Instead of a luxury suite, the Cronus' lifeboat was converted into a science module where, in addition to the two science labs, the scientist crew conducted experiments on Chemical A0-3959X.91 – 15 and created the 26 Draconis Strain. After the outbreak on the Cronus, the science module was ejected and abandoned on LV-1113.
