Hey, all:  does anyone know who designed the red on black instructions panel Ripley used to trigger the destruction of the Nostromo.  As details go, it was one hell of a prop.  Puts all other spaceship controls to shame, given its matter of fact guidance for detonating something the size of a city.

I wrote to Ron Cobb on his website and he was decent enough to reply quickly, saying thanks but that it hadn't been his, then recommended I ask around.

That said - any ideas?  Hoping to find a vendor of prints, posters, etc or a detailed PDF, at least.

Welcome feedback, when you consider how grim and practical those steps were, for detonating something the size of Manhattan.  The words "Scuttle Procedure" make it sound very orderly.

Thanks and best,

Mike Mac, Boston, MA

I thought it was great how they recreated this in the Alien: Isolation video game
